Here's the thing. I noticed that Gems are rarely classified as the underdog because nothing seems to faze us. But we do get hurt and although we bounce back pretty quickly, that doesn't negate the fact that we have been hurt and that it also cuts us deep.

I guess I'm just ranting at how other signs seem to monopolize the hurt implying that because of how resilient we are, we could never possibly imagine the pain that they've gone through. It's like they trivialize whatever it is that's broken our heart just because we don't tend to wear our hearts on our sleeves.

I know that there are two sides of us and those who are non-Gemini will rarely understand this. They can choose to embrace it but unless they're there, they will never understand it fully. There's the light and bubbly and sociable side to us and then, there's the dark and lonely place that we often choose to experience alone mostly because most people seem to like the other side of us more. They (others) don't see it very often but it exists.

In fact -- and this is just a theory -- Gems might have more cumulative hurt, if you come to think of it because unlike other signs, despite being hurt, we will have the courage to get back in the ring and try again. Just because we're brave enough to do that doesn't mean we didn't hurt tremendously though.

You are exactly right. We do feel emotional pain just like everyone else, we just have a totally different way of dealing with it. Which is never understood by others, but we Gems always understand each other. Probably why so many Gems marry other Gems. We can be in pain and still feel the need to make others laugh and have a good time. Our dark and lonely place never allows anyone else in, not even to get a glimpse of our pain and anguish. It is our secret and we never tell others or show them that it exists. Most people will lay in bed or pout, but we somehow find a way to pull ourselves together and go on about our business as if nothing ever happened, maybe this is why so many Gems are great Actors and Actresses it is an everyday thing for us to put on a rose colored mirage for everyone else, even if we are really dying inside. Which is why they find us cold and heartless. However for us, the world is going on around us and we feel like

That's one reason why I am super glad I found this forum.

Yeah, I've read other posts saying that Gems are good with Gems so... maybe I should give up that Virgo who is in perpetual emotional denial and just go look for a Gem, LOL.

Actually, one of my best guy friends is a Gem. I know he loves me and I love him too but we're too much like an old couple for there to be anything romantic (at least on my part). I need to smell testosterone on him and I don't. Gaws, I wish I did. Life would be so much simpler if we ended up together.

CC, you hit the nail on the head, as usual.

i think the fact that gems are emotional individuals, we take things more personal than other signs. i know I do. and when i get down, i feel as if no one but myself can eventually lift me up. my husband knows when i get to this point, but feels inept to bring me out of the depth of anguish i'm experiencing. i find myself having to get off my duff and go to the gym to workout or swim laps. those things help improve my mood and make me feel happier. I also am addicted to music and it's effect on my attitude is overwhelming at times.
sometimes when i can't explain how crappy I feel, when I feel totally alone, i play the song "Away from the Sun" by 3 doors down. that song just speaks to my heart and allows me to really feel what i'm feeling without having to explain it to someone else.

"Away From The Sun"

It's down to this
I've got to make this life make sense
Can anyone tell what I've done
I miss the life
I miss the colours of the world
Can anyone tell where I am

'Cause now again I've found myself
So far down, away from the sun
That shines into the darkest place
I'm so far down, away from the sun again
Away from the sun again

I'm over this
I'm tired of living in the dark
Can anyone see me down here
The feeling's gone
There's nothing left to lift me up
Back into the world I know

And now again I've found m

Awww.... you are sweet. =) You know, even if your friend kept brushing off your fussing over her, I'm pretty sure that she appreciated it a lot. Most of the time, when we're in this place, someone noticing that we are helps a lot. It makes us come out of this cave faster. Although we may prefer finding our balance by ourselves (as opposed to someone holding our hands while we do it), your presence and moral support keeps us going. You're an awesome friend. Just wanted to tell you that.
