Is it that easy to tell anybody how you really feel?

There are times that I just can't tell anybody how I feel. Maybe because I dont know why? Or because I dont know whats the purpose? Right? Its not that I dont trust them, maybe because I cant find the right words to make them understand. Have you felt the same way too?

not everyone has those moments in your life. when you do not know what we feel and know what to think. do not know what we do. this is a medical condition that I should think and find some meaning in their lives. nice day! Success!

Do you mean to say i have an illness? Well i think this kind of experiences are normal for all humans. I bet you had experience it but you just forget. Its rare maybe but it does exist.

I didnt understand what did she mean at all, but for sure its not an illnes. And its not rare though. I have same feelings often. Sometimes I just want to say so many things, but I cant express them. I cant find any words to describe my feelings. Thats normal. :)

coz she's saying, having those experiences have medical condition. hehe.. Well you are right, it does often exist within a person. Its really hard finding the right words that sometimes you choose to be silent rather than speaking at all.

It used to be a huge problem for me. I couldnt be open to people. I couldnt share my feelings with anyone. I didnt even realize that. Once my friend told me about this problem. I realized that whenever it comes to the point when I have to open up and tell people how I feel, I always try to change a topic with some stupid jokes... And it was really bad. I know many people are having same problem. It wasnt easy, but now Im OK. ANd thats greaaat.:) Now everything around me is so different... My relationships are much deeper and uhmmm its just amazing to be open to people. :) Now if something like that happens to me its not because I cant be open to people, its because I cant find words to describe everything... :)

Im happy for that you are now being open with your feelings and emotions. Sometimes, its just good to share so that a little burden within us will be lifted up. After sharing feelings or emotions to others we feel like we are new and that its so light. I hope you can work out on expressing it the way others can understand.

Expressing is not a big problem for me. Usually I have no problem to describe my feelings though. But sometimes I feel like I want to say sooo much but I cant find any words... Usually its love what makes me feel so. Than simple 'I love you' is always enough... But deep in my heart I want to say much more...

Not for me, it is not always very easy to say my feelings to people. i do not even let my parents know how i truly feel about things. i am always used to keeping my emotions to myself all the time and showing it is quite a bit hard for me. =(

What is so hard about that for you? I know it can be hard, but since you get over it... Its just the one of best things ever happened to me! Im free now. It took me some time, but now whatever I feel and no matter what is going on I have no problem to tell my friends how i feel. And thats amazing. Dont rush things. Try tell to your close friends about your feelings. Try to open up. It will take some time but its definitely worth it ! :)

Yaa I too had such experiences.. Actually its not the matter of trust or the person, its only because of the lack of words which can express our feelings. Trust and the person matters a little, if we are not at all close with the person we'll never be able to share our feelings.. But even though its our best companion some times it will be difficult for us to share the feelings...and its only because of the lack of words due to our emotions...... But a true companion can understand our emotions and feelings more than our words.There we can find whether we are lucky or what..

Yeah, i agree with you. Because of the emotions, it all wrapped us up to the point that we can no longer know how to express it through words. Thanks for your opinion!

When anyone is put on the spot it is much harder to talk to someone. I have had it done to me, and I have did it to others. If you can not talk to a person, then when you are confronted with something it will be hard to explain your self.

It's not easy to explain how you really feel and have to be sure that the other one understands what you mean. This is a though one also because although we all know what is cold or warm there still is a big differece between what you feel like cold and I do. If it comes to feelings it's even harder to explain. Sometimes people think you accuse them of something or you are saying they don't care about you and that is not what you mean. We all have different feelings about the same words. Why? Because we have different life styles, life experiences, character etc. As long as you don't know exactly what you feel, what causes the feelings you have it can be difficult too to explain your feelings to someone else.

Yes I have felt like that several times. Sometimes, I just find it easier to write down in a journal how I feel, and whats going on to make me feel like that, and that seems to help.
