Everyone has feelings and everyone responds to it their own way. Also, feelings can bring happiness or sadness in people's lives. At different times, I have withheld my feelings, displayed my feelings, and described my feelings.

Specifically, my parents used to take out their anger on me because of their fight or some problems they had. I did not tell them anything like why they took out their anger on me even though it was not my fault. I used to think that, if I say something, then...
