I dont believe in hiding your feelings but i also dont blieving in bringing people down just because your down. I might not work, i might only be a stay at home mom but i think i worry more about everything then most people. my fiance works to pay the bills but i worry about if this is gonna be able to get paid and so on. i also worry about all my families health, and stuff i really should worry about. I hide the feelings alot because id rather not get other people worried about my financial situation. i know i have people who will help me but im already in neck deep with oweing people and i just cant keep asking. im sure eventually ill be out of this whole i am in and will be able to be stress free and can stop hiding the stress im under if that makes any sense. so you ever hide the way you feel sometimes?

It really depends on what emotions i'm feeling at the time. If i'm upset or depressed, I will hide them. I had conflicts and I hate to start a fight. However, if i'm excited or happy about something, I will share it.

yup..actually were the same..i'm hiding all my feelings at all..regarding with my problem to my mother..work..etc..and also i hide my feelings with my current girl friend..when were on high schools..i use to look at her and i'm contented in just looking at her..in 2 years..but then i am have the chance to show my feelings to her and man enough to say that i really like her, and really love her..and i wait for her in 2 years..hehehe..that's all..but sometimes hiding your own feelings make other people to worry..hmm..sometimes you have to show it so they will understand you and help you regarding to your problems in life..

Sometimes give a time for each other, you and your partner to talk about your feeling, about your life, about your future so that your worries became less. Having communication at all time is healthy. Just don't let your children hear about the burdens about your family. Thanks for sharing your feelings to my lot.

yes i do hide my feelings, sometimes it is better not show your true feelings especially to the people close to you, or otherwise you will get them stressed out too.There are things i prefer to keep to myself without letting on what is up until the situation is resolved, because also there those people you could be pouring your problems to and they find you to be a nag or fussy. Maybe later i can tell i can tell a close friend how bad things really were at the time.

i hide my feelings most of the time and its kind of hard most especially when you can't confide your true feelings with a friend or a family member.. you know, there are things that i can't share with them because i know in myself that they wouldn't understand...

You are really nice but not sharing your feelings with others you are making some internal injury with your heart and you have to some time pay for it to our health. If you do not want to involve others by not feeling them sad and I think you might have some personal friends with whom you can share. The best idea I tell you to share all your odds at my lot and no feelings would be heart. The people here are good and listener.

I tend to worry a lot sometimes. Sometimes, I don't even need to do so. I try to hide my feelings about these things but my boyfriend always knows when something is wrong with me or when something is on my mind. I tend to just chill by listening to music or coming on the computer to take my find off things. I like to keep things to myself until I know how to express myself in an appropriate way in order to make sure I'm not over reacting.

i hide my feelings most of the time its hard thou especially if its on the emotional side like you think your falling inlove with someone but your afraid to tell, if its money i just go to my parents sometimes i mean most of the time there are some things that you can express and show right away but there are some things that its just hard to express or say right?

Well for it's the same I just don't want to see them when I am feeling down,anyway problems are only temporary. I just don't wanna add up with their problems. As long as I carry on with life. Accept what I have in life. I just count the blessings then feeling bad about it! I just don't wanna comlicate everything so I manage to hide it to myself.God be with you!God bless!

Of course everyone can hide feelings, it is normal for every human to hide feelings in different situation because its an instinct for us to determine a situation to hide it or not. Normally, we can hide feelings..

Stop worrying SwtJenLove. It will depress you more. I get stressed soon too .I am a short tempered person. i have high chances of losing temper. I control it by yoga. To talk about feelings in general, I hide it sometimes,really when necessary, like when everyone else are happy i don't want to put up a sad tine on my face and look for sympathy unless serious.

SwtJen, It's hard to make it in the world today... Maybe you need to learn the things that you actually require to live and figure out what you can really do without. Please know that I am not meaning to sound hard on you. It's just that I have always "just barely" got by and slowly learned how to figure out my true wants and needs to survive in this world. Don't feel bad, worrying causes stress and it can really bring you down. If you need help, go to your local Social Services and see what you might qualify for. They offer many good programs to help you get your life back on track and ease your frustrations. Don't let pride get in your way.

i do hide what i am feeling. but many times though i try to hide what i am feeling that people will usually know or take a hint on what i am really feeling and so i don't need to let it out specially if they already know how i feel about the situation. but i think that we should express what we are feeling inside so that there will be open communication with other people specially with our loved ones.
