have you ever felt so overwhelmed that words won't even suffice how you feel?

i wanted to tell someone how much i feel bad about him. how he's been so skeptical and conceited. but being the skeptic and arrogant man he is, of course he wouldn't succumb to his flaws. sometimes i'm so overwhelmed by a certain feeling, i couldn't help but just show it, rather than saying it, because i thought that words just wouldn't suffice the meaning i would like their brains to encapsulate, and it's going to be a waste of time if i would just say it rather than just showing it. how about you? have you ever felt so overwhelmed you can't say anything else? _

I have had this feeling many times. When I have been overcome with hurt, betrayal and anger, I felt like my heart was being ripped out of my chest. I just walked away from the situation, because there really were no words to express how I was feeling, and the only constructive action I could take was to remove myself from the situation. There have also been times when I have felt overcome with grief either at the loss of someone dear to me or hearing about another person's pain. At these times, I will just throw my arms around the person and hug them, either to comfort them or so that they know that we are united by our grief over the loss of our loved one. I think that expresses how we feel better than any words ever could. There have been times that I have not even really known a person very well, but their grief was so obvious and it touched me so deeply that as I hugged them tears welled up in my own eyes, and in that moment, I know that just being able to share the feeling with somebody else that truly understood their pain helped them, even if it was only in a small way.

There have been many times where words have failed me. I mean truly there were no words to describe what I was feeling. There were many times where I associated this with anger. Someone had done something that disgusted me so much, that no words could describe what I had felt. I found myself just staring, numb, in shock, and unable to formulate even one word, never mind a complete sentence. Emotions can be a funny thing. There are sometimes where we can think all we want, but it is hard to string together anything remotely coherent. It can be very frustrating but it happens more often than I care to remember.

i couldn't agree more. many times when i feel like that, whether i'm happy, grateful, angry, or apologetic, my overwhelming sincerity on those feelings just couldn't fit in a word or two even when i try, so eventually they perceive me as insensitive, when i'm completely the otherwise. *sigh* i'm grateful for your thoughts. :) thanks.

There has been lots of times that i have had this problem as in the past i have been too angry as well as shocked to even get the words out to that person.There have also been things in the past that upset me soo much aswell that i was in two minds of what to say as well as what i should do.I think that there are alot of people out there that have been in that kind of position as well as people who have said things on the spur of the moment only to regret what they have said or done.
