Unsafe Containers

Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?

Well, for me, every emotion out there is hard to keep it under lock and key. I am the kind of person whose face displays whatever emotions I feel without any delay. I just cannot hide them, try as I might. I have tried many times to mask them but oh no, it did not work. I hate that I can’t feel anything I want to without a public display on my face. Very very embarrassing!!!

If I blush, you would see it. My cheeks turn red and a smile escapes from my lips.

My face is like a mirror of my emotions and feelings. I am still trying to cover it but it is just too hard. I really hate hate hate this!!

For instance, If I am angry at someone and that “someone” is sitting right in front of me trying to get me into a conversation, I cannot talk even if I try. Even if I do let out a few words, it gets limited. My face won’t have a smile but a frown. Not fully a frown but something that is of lighter degree, confused? I wish I knew a word to describe that but alas, I don’t! You just have to work your imagination a bit here…sorry!

One emotion that I have no control whatsoever is laughter! I cannot keep it under control. If I feel the urge to laugh, I just have to let it out. But sometimes, not all the time, that works for me is to clench my teeth (of course, my lips would cover that process) really hard. Did I just reveal this peculiar and embarrassing trait of mine to the public? Please console me!! Tell me that it is not at all peculiar, in fact, that it is common! Pleaaassseee!! If it is not as common, I suggest and order you, okay fine, request (better?) to erase what you have just read from your brain!

I’m gonna let you all in on a little secret (won’t be little anymore now that I am telling it to you all): When I was in 4th grade (I think it was in 3rd, no 4th), my English teacher (he was very very strict) gave me a nickname: laughing baby! I used to laugh a lot, I still do but not much anymore though. I just laugh for no particular reason! I think that’s what makes me…um me?

Now that I think of it, I can hide my envy if i want to. That’s good to know!! No, I am kidding, I don’t feel envy or jealous of someone who just won a lottery. Maybe I would feel a little envious…come on, I am sure that I am not the only in the world to feel like this in a “lottery” situation, right? Please save me…drowning in my own embarrassment! Aaaaahhhhhh!

In conclusion (as if this was a well constructed essay! lol), my face is an open book!!! Don’t read me or…else! 😛
