Re: Anyone else find it hard to hide/fake emotions?

It depends, I notice people say things to get a reaction out of me so I don't react but when I'm around my friend I don't hide my emotions.

Re: Anyone else find it hard to hide/fake emotions?

I can fake emotions but I am terrible at hiding them which I actually really hate because I don't want other people to know what I'm feeling if I don't want them to. Anyone know how to get better at it?

I can fake emotions but I am terrible at hiding them which I really hate because I want to have full control over myself and I don't want others to know what I'm feeling if I don't want them to.

Ugh, I relate to this so much!

My face is usually either too honest or doesn't seem to reflect how I'm feeling, one time I tried to friendly greet someone, but apparently my face came off as aggressive and they took offense to it.

The thing was I was trying so hard to look friendly and make a good first impression, so the fact it backfired was just annoying.

Stupid face.
It is disappointing when you've tried and things don't go the way you would like. But the best thing to do is not to worry too much about your facial expressions. Then your free to enjoy whatever your doing and the rest will get better over time

You shouldn't have to hide or fake your emotions and it's really bad for you, when you do. We are not designed to keep a lid on things and suppress our true feelings.
