Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 155 People

    It's Been A Long Time Coming

    For quite awhile, I honestly avoided joining this group and all for reasons unexplainable to even myself. I didn't want to be mean by not accepting others as my friend but to be honest a lot has changed around EP and some of it hasn't. There are still some kind-hearted people...

    How Big It Is!

    I have a huge circle of friends. But we don't talk! I am going through and sending each a virtual gift asking if they still want to be friends. It's going to take foreverrrrrr, but I have the time. But it's weird how you have someone friended, but you never interact at all! I...

    Do You Recall The Last Time We Communicated?

    Say what? You may be thinking, "Wait, is Skyy7 even in my circle?" or "Dang, let me check my Whiteboard." If either of those thoughts crossed your mind, and i'm on your friends list, then the answer is clearly a very long time. No offense or hard feelings on my part. The need...

    Why, Oh Why...

    I am making a big deal out of this? Yes, I am notorious for removing and then adding people back, it's my biggest EP flaw. That I hurt people by adding and removing :( Okay here's the thing... I really prefer a really small circle. That way I can add more pictures to my profile...
