Stop asking me what's wrong
Because I'm never going to answer.
Stop telling me it gets better
Because I've accepted that it'll never change.
Stop begging me to let you in
Because even then, I'm just going to fake a smile.
:) something quick i wrote. comments?

Stop asking if I'm fine cause I'm still going to say I am.

My girlfriend and I are going through exactly what this story/poem is saying, I told her everything about me but she still can't trust me...

This isn't a great mind set to stick to. 

Honestly, I had done this in the past. And it blew up in my face because of it. I bottled up my emotions, didn't tell people how I really felt, and paid for it big time. I don't even recall a time when I smiled during my middle school years because I'd done such things. 

It's always important to express what one feels, whether they be positive or negative emotions. No, it won't help all of the time. But it's better than keeping those emotions inside, where they can tear you apart inwardly until they burst out.

People aren't meant to be alone and we're not meant to keep our emotions so bottled up and to ourselves. It backfires eventually. That in and of itself can be catastrophic. 

It takes someone stronger to speak up about what they're feeling instead of brushing away those who are actively trying to help.

Or maybe I'm just a prattling optimist with real world experience. Who knows.

No, you are right. During the beginning of this school year I had this mind set. Everyday I'd come to school with a smile on my face, making everyone happy. When inside me there were negative emotions building up.

First I became uncomfortable with who I was and what I was becoming. Then I started to judge myself in everything I did. Of course no one knew because I hid it behind this elaborate mask of a happy, funny guy who had no care in the world. Then it finally all rushed out when I learned that my most beloved childhood cat of mine was probably going to be put down. I was truly devastated. I tried to hide the emotion again but it blew out no matter what I did. With that much negative energy built up behind that mask, it was a terrible display of yelling screaming and throwing things everywhere. I'm not proud of what I did and I wish I would gave talked about it to someone before it was too late.

So don't ever let your emotions build up behind your mask of lies and fake smiles. Instead, find a friend, a true friend, that you would trust with anything, and talk to that person. Trust me, they will listen.

It's hard to deal with most situations when one has done that. I do know the feeling. Little things, the smallest of insults, would leave me in tears. Bad news would crush me. It was a terrible time. I had considered self harm at that age and in high school. Thankfully, I met a few people who prevented me from doing that. 

I still talk to them and vent to them when I need to. They've always gladly listened and wanted to help out. Ironically, now that I've grown up, I've turned into a bit of an open book, so it's easier for me to express what I'm feeling. 

It might just have to deal with age and how much pressure a teen can take. Honestly, as a teen, everything is overblown and worse. Getting older, I've learned to deal with things easier and not be so shaken by others.

I'm sorry, but this is completely the wrong message to give people.

It lets people know that this is the 'right' way to think, and tells anyone who might try to help not to bother.

It even directly contradicts what "One Special Person" says.

I am truely sorry, I like most of your stuff and agree with it, but this is wrong on so many levels.

It might end up doing more harm than good.

There are times people feel different, and contadict themselves. One day I was feeling like I was going to kill. Five minutes later, I was rolling on the grass and playing around with rocks.

I can totally relate to this. I had my ex, ask me what's wrong and why I was sad, I have to say, he's smart. He knew that he was the problem. But I hated every moment he asked me "What's wrong? Is it my fault?" and then I started crying...all I could do was pretend I was fine until he finally gave up.

True. I get annoyed when people ask me what's wrong but they're only trying to help. It gets annoying sometimes.
