My feeling is that it's the most terrible way to feel - it consumes you is totally isolating and void of hope. If it is possible to engage in anything outside of yourself I think it may be helpful. Nature always does its best to nurture us, even if all you can do is sit alone in a chair on your porch or in your yard for 15 or 20 minutes a day. I have found that many of the articles on this site have been helpful, even if only to get me through the moment or to let me know that others do get through difficult times. I am often inspired to hang in there through some of the things I read here. I do know though that there are times when nothing can reach us because we are too shut down. I hope that you still have a sliver of willingness to be open to information that may break through your feelings of being lost, sad and confused..., even if only temporarily. And then keep coming back or reaching out as best you can. I empathize with how you are feeling. No matter what try to be kind to yourself. Blessed be.

I as well have a great deal of difficulty figuring out my emotions...I grew up in a home where....it felt as if I wasn't allowed to have them ...and b/c of that I find myself struggling desperately. A good friend is quite angry with me at the moment and has decided to ignore me..ice cold treatment....while I've tried to rectify the situation......the feelings and the self talk to my self are horrid......sleeplessness.......migraine......shortness of breath.......tears.....feelings of unworthiness.....altho I see my Dr in just short of a month........I'm TIRED tired of the ups and downs of life.........today tho I am pleased to have found this forum enabling myself the opportunity to share my feelings.......thank you :-)

Going up and down with emotion has caused havoc in my relationshops with others. I would welcome adult responses to overwhelming emotions. Sometimes I revert to child like behaviour which only furthers my distance from people.

I can so relate to what you are saying and could use some techniques for coping with emotions myself. I too often feel that I respond in a childlike way instead of bringing to a situation the strength and stability of a grown woman. The things that come to mind for me that would be helpful (which I often fail to recognize or put into action at the time) are things like having pre-determined standards for ways in which it is acceptable for others to treat me. Resisting the intrigue of curiosity so that I don't feed an issue and keep it going. Knowing when to stop trying to defend myself, my actions, what I think, etc. Realizing when it is time to let go. Taking responsibility for my own self-preservation. Doing or saying less when someone is signaling that I am too much, too intense, too dramatic, too sensitive, too emotional and accepting that they do not have the ability to relate to, understand or accept certain aspects of who I am. Wanting approval when it is not there to be offered seems to lead to frustration and ultimately creates distance where we are seeking closeness. Being there for ourselves in the way that we want others to be.
Responding to your post has given me food for thought that would be good for me to apply to myself. The vulnerability that steers us to respond in a childlike way to situations probably comes from fragility that has always been a part of us due to life experience. I think it's important to not feel that we have to act in such a way that rejects that part of us. But, at the same time it is a private part of who we are that we need to recognize is not appropriate to bring into most social situations or relationship problems. It is our personal responsibility to find balance in the ways that we communicate with others, while assuring the fragile child in us that we are capable of addressing any situation as the adult we are now. I tend to ramble. Thank you for indulging my thoughts in response to your post.

crying sucks. Crying makes me feel like a big baby. Crying is so effing uncontrollable most of the time for me.....and trying to hold back crying is so difficult to do. Especially when u are hurting reaaaalllly bad. I sometimes hide, sometimes keep it all sucked inside myself. It doesn't help, it doesn't do jack, but stay there relentlessly always in my heart. And people think I am weak.
