I moved into seven houses, moved into three schools (I'm home schooling right now), moved into six churches, moved into four different states and AM LIVING where ALL of the family I know lives on the OTHER SIDE of the country.
I think I am so used to moving, or leaving something very special to me that I can't cry anymore. I want to cry, I even try to make myself cry. I want to be sympathetic, but I CAN'T.
Last year, my school closed down from lack of students. My friends, (In which almost all of them had been there since kindergarten) were heart broken, some of us would have to separate with the slight hope we would see each other in the future. But I couldn't feel anything. My heart was broken so many times that I was used to this kind of pain. I loved the school; in fact, this was the best school that I ever had. But I felt NOTHING.
I explained this to my mom one day, and she nodded and understood.

Has anyone felt like they were... Emotionless?

well...no, not really. although my family has stayed in the same state and city since i was born, we moved a lot. the longest we stayed in a house was three years. i guess it makes sense that you dont feel sad anymore because, well, think about it. if someone continued to hurt you (emotionally) over and over again, you would eventually stop feeling the pain. i'm not sure if its bad to not feel sad about those things anymore...i guess you just need to pray about it and ask God for help :)

I have. I've lost a grandfather when I was a toddler, a grandmother when I was a kid, a grandmother as an early teen, and a great-grandmother as a teen. I've felt sad and all, but even though I feel like I should, I haven't really cried. I honestly don't understand it. And I don't really know how to explain it, especially because every time it happened my mom would ask me if I needed to cry, and I would let her hold me and all. But I never really cried. I don't know why...

Pray! God will help you! I know that that would be hard, because I have moved some also. Have you tried talking to another trusted adult like a pastor or teacher that you trust and feel open with?

everyone reacts differently to situations- don't be worried if you react differently to other people.
Godsadvicegiver11 is right, if you are worried about it, talk to your parents or someone you trust.

HI,

It's not unusual for people to have a decrease in emotional responses to a situation that happens repeatedly. This is called desensitization and can be a good thing or a bad thing.

The good thing is that desensitization helps us avoid the misery of being repeatedly hurt. But as you note, it sometimes seems odd to be unable to feel an emotion when you want to.

The reality is that you can learn to experience these emotions in a different way. Although you may not cry or scream as you might expect, you can make a conscious effort to express your emotions. Try writing a story, journaling or even writing a song about it. You can share this with someone you trust (like your mom) or just keep it between you and God. In either case, you will have expressed those feelings that don't seem to come out any other way.

Yeah, I have tried all of your suggestions, and I do write songs and stories. I pray to God so that I could feel something. But I guess me having desensitization probably helps me deal with things that would happen in the future. Thanks guys. You can write more suggestions for me if you'd like :)

Sometimes I wish I could be! No, jk... kind of.
Anyways, I can't say I have ever been in your shoes, I'm always the type who gets like heart-broken over anything changing, but I keep it inside. I understand what you're saying, though. Pray about it! <3
