got emotions

"Don' be fooled by me....Don't be fooled by the mask I wear...................Please listen carefully and try to hear what I'm not saying; what I'd like to be able to say; what, for survival, I need to say but I can't say. I dislike the hiding
I'd really like to be genuine, spontaneious, and me; but you have to help me. you have to help me by holdlng out your hand, even when that's the last thing I seem to want or need. Each time you are kind and gentle, and encouraging, each time you try to understand because you really care, my heart begins to grow wings. Very small wings. Very feeble wings. But wings. With your sensitivity and sympathy and your power of understanding, I can make it. You can breate life into me. It will not be easy for you. A long conviction of worthlessness builds strong walls. but love is stronger than strong walls, and therein lies my hope. Please try to beat down those walls w/ firm hands, bt with gentle hands, for a child is very sensitive, and I am a child
Who am I, you may wonder. For I am every man, every woman, every child...every human you meet

This excerpt is from Sean's The 7 highly effective habits for teens. I really like this, besides at this moment its relatable. It's my last yr of high school, and have well-intentioned BUT annoying parents, and I have crushes that usually come and go, but currently I have one that's been lasting for quite a while and just won't go away (stupid hormones!) this excerpt encourages me to hang in there. Also sometimes when people are like "how are you", like every human, I answer "good" or "fine" but occasionally I will answer like that, yet there is everything that's going on, feeling insecure because of a crush......or I'll be mad @ my friend and I'll mask my emotions
