The girl who hides her feelings will always be there to help everyone else with their problems.
No matter what the problem is, she is there to help you out. She is really good at helping people work through their own issues and feelings.
It makes them feel like they have it all together, when in reality, they just use everyone else’s problems as a distraction from their own.
The girl who hides her feelings will avoid confrontation at all costs.
If something happens that hurts her, she won’t acknowledge it head on. If she begins to feel something deeply, especially negative emotions like anger or hurt, she will disappear for awhile and deal with it in on her own.
She will reappear after she feels like she can handle the situation and will act like everything is fine. The people around her have no idea that she was ever upset.
The girl who hides her feelings will always finds the silver lining.
No matter what tragedy hits her life, she can always spin it to be positive. If someone dies, she is at peace. If her heart gets broken, it is a lesson learned.
People admire how in touch she is with her feelings to not let the negative emotions get to her. But the truth is, she talks about the positive things, because she hasn’t dealt with the negative emotions. The last thing she wants to do is break down when someone asks her how she is doing.
The girl who hides her feelings will make light of serious situations.
Sometimes instead of finding the silver lining, she will make jokes about it. She thinks that if she is laughing about the problem, people won’t realize how worried she really is.
Again, it’s another way of acting like she has it all together, when in reality she is avoiding dealing with it.
The girl who hides her feelings will avoid serious relationships.
Do you ever wonder why she jumps from one casual relationship to another? And completely ignores the guy you are dead sure is right for her? It’s because she’s scared of that emotional connection. If she spends her time with people she doesn’t become attached to, she won’t have to deal with the pain if things don’t work out.
The idea of showing someone she is vulnerable scares the hell out of her, and she will do anything to keep people, especially boyfriends, at arms length.
The girl who hides her feelings will eventually come unglued.
Maybe it’s after a shot of tequila she knew she shouldn’t have taken and did anyway. Then she’s at a party ugly crying on the couch, for no particular reason, yet for every reason under the sun.
Put your arm around her, and let her cry it out…and then never bring it up again. If you do, she will just tell you that everything is fine.
