Suffer in Silence

Essay By: nicoletaylor

Just a little something I wrote about how I tend to deal with bad experiences and emotions. I hope some people can relate.

Everybody deals with anger. It is a natural emotion that people deal with on a daily basis, and everyone has different ways of dealing with it. I was always a "suffer in silence" type of person. I hold it in for as long as I possibly can, and before I can stop myself, I explode.

This also applies to every single one of my emotions. If I'm sad, I hold it in. If I'm nervous, I hold it in. I never knew why I was so prone to doing this; perhaps because I never wanted to actually deal with my emotions. I try to put whatever is bothering me to the back of my head and go on with my life. However, rather like a mosquito that keeps coming back, my emotion always lingers and comes back to bite me. Most of the time it comes right before I go to sleep, but it can come anytime that I'm alone or my mind drifts. My thoughts go back to something that happened five years ago, or two hours ago, or three months ago. Once I think of one bad experience, there comes a flood of memories, and there is no way to stop it...except sometimes with some tissues and a tub of ice cream.

Please tell me I'm not the only one that's like this.

I beg you.
