Teens not being able to express their feelings or thoughts??

Okay, Vanilla and Ali are busy at the moment but I thought I would post something up myself first. First I would like to say I am sorry we haven't been posting up as much as we should. We have all been busy so do please understand. So, as he title says, "Teens not being able to express their feelings or thoughts." I thought I would post up a post talking about teens thoughts and what not. So please join in and post up your thoughts and ideas. I would love nothing more then to hear from our readers out there.

For some teens it's like Speak for them. Have you ever read the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson? About a girl named Melinda Sordino who is an outcast as a high school freshman due to reasons later revealed in the book. She also doesn't talk much in the book either. She keeps her thoughts to herself. Well for some teens it's exactly the same to them. They don't speak their opinions and keep highly to themselves.
I am one of them. I hardly speak my mind and really don't say much. I'm afraid that my thoughts will get me in trouble or something I'll say someone else will take the wrong way which always happens. That doesn't mean I give up trying to find a way to express myself in other ways. I can't express through clothes as some can. I wish I can but I can't. So I do so in music. I listen to music b.c it's my life. Music=life. I also do poems but sometimes I'm just to lazy to pick up a pen and paper to write.
So here's my first Q.
How do YOU express yourselves?
Do you speak your mind?
Or are you a Melinda Sordino like I am?
Why aren't you speaking your thoughts or what's on your mind?
For me it's because of adults. I'd rather not have to either 1: explain myself or 2: be talked down by some adult who thinks they can shun me b.c I'm a young teenager. But sometimes I'll manage to get in one word before I'm shut up.
So let's try this. Comment blew and tell me why YOU don't express yourself. Or maybe you do.-shrugs- Tell me it all in the comments and if your lucky I'll even comment back to you all((If I get notified which I probably will.))
Thanks for reading and we all love our fans/followers!


It's me, Cloe! ((vanilla)) Sorry I haven't been posting in a while....I really don't have an excuse ._.
But since Bella and I have been talking, we decided that we should post again, so here I am. c:
So on the subject of expressing ourselves, I think I should tell you a little about myself before I go in deep about representing yourselves.
So, I know that I am VERY different in school then I am at home or with my friends. But, regardless of where I am or who I'm with, I make sure that people know how I think and feel about things. No matter what we plan to do or where we plan to go, we always make sure that everyone wants to go there. And if they don't ask me, then I tell them. When I'm home, I am quite the same. I think of my family more as an extension of my friends, because we all joke around about things. Even if some of the topics are inappropriate to some, they are still very light-heart about it.
I know that some people have problems with speaking up, but for all the people like that, you need to know that if you don't say what's on your mind or make your presence known, then no one else will! People can't read minds, so it's good to tell them what you think. Even if you think it may hurt their feelings, because if they are your true friends they will understand and take your words in a better way.
So, that's my P.O.V., I hope it helped, or at least entertained you c:
