You're always told to show someone if you're in pain, or if you're suffering of some sorts, whether its self esteem issues, bullying, or exam stress but what I've always wondered is how do you show that?
Found out the word 'how' was in 'show' while I was revising for maths a couple of weeks ago, I have a habit of rewriting my words when I can't be assed to work (therefore wasting time LOL xD) and then I realised how is in show!! (Yes...i know its obvious but I was really excited, k?!?) so yeah...it's probably been done before but I discovered this by myself so don't rain on my parade

I think it's really cool...IMO i think this a form of art. There are many different forms of art and I think this would fit into the many catergories that there is in the world. I liked your meaning behind this and I didn't even realize sHOW.. I like stuff like this because of the meaning behind it! Keep up the awesome work!! %uE022
i have to say that's quite clever. at first when i saw show i interpreted it as a message showing how the media seems to glorify these things and in turn people tune in to watch or hear about these things. I may have an answer to your question though, i remember when i was depressed it was the hardest thing to admit. The weirdest thing about being depressed is that the pain hurts so much that you want out but at the same time you are afraid of the help. Anyway long story short, i found myself dropping hints that i was in a dark place, trying to let people know without having to fully come out and say it. I think people show these emotions subliminally because maybe what we want the most is not a release but for someone to care enough to intervene.
To me, emotions are obsolete, painful uncontrolled emotional situations leave you vulnerable. So many humans modern day are so emotional, it's almost as if emotions are some sort of popularity among what people are interested in. I don't show people if I am in pain, I used to be a very emotional person. These days I think people just imagine being "emo" is cool, and intending to always have a gloomy persona is more interesting? What does my opinion matter, so many people would disagree.
