Do you guys struggle with expressing the feeling you really want to
19.08.2021 by User65223P15

I haven’t been diagnosed or anything, I’m not allowed to go to a therapist. But I’ve always struggled with explaining my emotions, to the point it just frustrates me. I can’t remember most of my childhood but I do know now a days I can’t seem to physically show what I want to. I want to scream and shout and cry cause I’m mad and sad but I just cant. And I don’t understand why. Sorry if this was super off topic

HI and welcome to the Forum

Seems like you are in a really tough place. Explaining emotions is really hard at times.

I feel like a lot of my life has been going through the motions without any real idea what I was feeling. Super intense emotions are easy to peg, but all the ones in-between are really a mystery. I really want to understand this better. I want to feel what other people feel. I think I had a pretty traumatic childhood and I just learned to suppress my emotions for the most part. I don't trust easily. I've been betrayed by people I thought were supposed to be there for me. Anyway, yes, I am someone who struggles to express my everyday emotions. I was married and got used to sharing my life with someone and when she left, I felt so alone. I miss having someone who is there for me.
