By pouring your emotions into something like a diary, so that you do not have them building up, but no-one else can see them. It's not always the best option but if it is something someone wants to do then its great :)

ANSWER #2 of 19

Wrighting, punching something when they feel like to much inside, reading books that are similar to your feelings so you get that feeling that you are not alone. You can have a stuffed animal to talk to, to get it all out on, it won't talk back nor say anathing.
But hidding emotions won't do you any good, you will just end up feeling worser about things.
How about getting a good friend to talk to or a someone that you know won't make you feel alone?
