only when I'm in in darkness, turn on the house lights and I'll feel like smashing my head into something..

I wouldn't say "strong" so much as "forgetful". Practical and interpersonal problems might be important, but they're not interesting, so they slip my mind a lot. I'm the type who's naturally inclined towards positivity, so whenever I'm feeling down about something, after five or ten minutes, I'll probably be lost in thought about something entirely different.

When I do have to deal with things, I usually have no trouble doing so, emotionally. I'm uncomfortable being serious, so I'm very efficient about it so that I can go back to being relaxed sooner.

nah, I'm the type that cries to feel better. It works though. Then a few days later I get over it

I can handle death well enough. After seeing a relation die in front of you. You can handle other deaths better. However, cry; cry out those emotions. Something I fine hard to do now. Relationships for me is hard because I believe when I was younger, I told a girl I like her and she shown a oooo type like reaction. That kind of hit the mark on me when it came to talking to girls/woman.

Sometimes you pretty much have to be a strong person to keep going, and realizing that you have no choice will make you strong by default. If you don't do something stupid, anyway.

I consider myself one of the stronger ones, among those I can think of, because I never need help with anything and tend to deal with emergencies in a controlled manner, and I jump at nothing that doesn't spell imminent and obvious danger to me. I've fought groups of people more than once (not by choice), and while I can't say I kicked all their asses, it takes a lot to stand your ground against 10 people when you're alone, and to keep control of the situation. I was never the one getting stitches, or getting their nose put back straight.

That said, I have shed a tear or two watching anime of all things, heheh. So of course, I cry at the death those very dear to me - not that this makes someone weak - I also can't go on with my night very easily if I see a big nasty spider and can't kill it. You have no idea the lengths I've gone to, to kill those demons so that I could go back to sleep. You be the judge..!

Seriously though, I think people are strong in a lot of different ways, but yeah, I consider myself a strong person.

I almost said same at first but in reality that's how I front it. I just tell myself to push things off because they're just going to slow you down and life goes by far too quick to dwell on simple things. But in the back of my mind they're always there. Eating away at me till there's only a speck of me left.

So no I'm not strong I just put up that front, I'm just a big ol' softie

Count your blessings. I have lost 3 friends to suicide. One of them was the only girl I think I really loved. Bullied for ages (not so much in University, which is nice), lost a grandma and grandpa to cancer and had a family friend blow his brains out with a shotgun after a fight with his wife. They were all such nice people too.

These things really don't phase me too much now. Though usually once a year... I just crash and burn. All the stress and what not comes crashing down. Tbh, I think that is going to happen soon haha. I am going to just get depressed as a MOFO and sleep for like 50 hours straight.

I hope that you let all of those emotions out soon. I know for me it we be a long, long, long time before all of it comes out.

As I said, it comes crashing out about once a year. One suggestion... if you can... let it out slowly over time. I don't like going off like Fat Boy. Feels horrible. I doubt you would either.

Tbh, I find crying (corny and unmasculine as it is) really helps. Also, while I don't suggest it... Alcohol helps too. Just be careful you do not form a dependency on it. Alcoholism isn't a joking matter. My Aunt was one for a time. That is a whole other monster in itself!

Also, if you do go off like Fat Boy, I suggest music that calms you down (whatever it is) and hibernating for a few days. It tends to help. Oh, unless you have reallllly good friends (I have 3 I keep in touch with now), don't vent too much to them. They tend to up and disappear X)

This have been bothering me lot, Because I never cry at the Funeral. I was told its because when I was born, they put me in box of glass and rarely have human touch. I was born very small... That why I keep myself in the distance when people tries to get close to me.

How can this make me strong person when I don't feel anything.. One time I tried to force myself to cry at my best friend funeral I ending up getting major headache! lol

I envy people that can cry at funeral, because that show that they're human.. people with no emotions are like robot! -sighs-

Does anyone have answer to my problem? :/

I guess I can handle most things pretty well and I've been through more than most people. But I do have my limits, and when I go past those I cry nonstop and get severe depression.
