I Am Thinking of Leaving Ep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 40 People

    Love U 4ever

    These days it seems like people are dropping like flies, leaving EP.  It isn't at all how it started.  I've always been one to adapt to change but, I am loosing the connection with people here on EP.  I love you dearly but I feel it a waste of time to sound off...

    Writing Is My Dream... But

     The market is so fickle and freelance jobs are at an all time low as far as pay. There are just too many really good writers out there looking at fewer and fewer jobs that pay barely enough to survive. As much as I enjoy it, I am mediocre at best. I can no longer afford to...

    I Start Hatin Myself Because of It..

    I hate to see myself becoming so addicted. I have to check it everyday... and I spend several hours a day on here.. I couldn't really leave it though, I think. I just love talking to all the people, but it's so time-consuming. Probably I'll take some days off once again.

    I Want to But...

    I can't stop checking EP but my activity has been greatly reduced lately. I don't know if I could honestly leave EP behind but I'm thinking maybe it will help my sanity. I'm tempted to just take an indefinite EP break.

    I have lots of friends here,

    and I've been here since 2010. However, it feels like a shell of its former self. Many of my old friends have gone from this site, or are MIA. And now I have some foul memories here, too. I came here because I was very sad and lonely. I'm not certain that I'll leave for good...

    Considering It

    I love this site for the support and the escape it has given me. However, it's also been a bit of a devil on my shoulder, inspiring me to say things, fantasize, and post things I shouldn't be posting. I will probably clean some things up on my profile when I'm not at work, and...

    It Is Time

    It has nothing to do with anyone in specific, just a feeling. I think it is time for me to move on, start finding myself in other ways I have made so many wonderful friends here- found those that showed me faith and trust again and most importantly fun and exploration.

    I've Been Thinking This a Lot Lately

    And I have told a few people too. The place has changed, not because the little ones have been allowed in, not because of any certain members and events that happen. I have no one real reason why I want to leave. Just sometimes the urge gets more than others. As...

    I haven't written anything here in a long time and I don't think i'll be writing here for a long time if I stay with this name and this account. I haven't felt for a long time that I have the freedom to express myself that first brought me here. I have so much that I just want to...

    it is simply drawing too much of my time

    and emotional energy. But some people here are so wonderful and some discussions, so interesting. I am setting my account to "vacation" for now and will see how long I can manage to stay away. Still hoping to get messages from some of you :)

    Maybe It Is Self Preservation

    I love everyone on here so so much. I will pop in and check messages, but for a bit I need a break. A very special friend here called it self preservation....maybe that is true. I am hurting and tired from giving all I have and having it rejected. I know in my head that I cannot...

    the first time I left mainly because I was frustrated with the constant tinkering with the site, and the fact that the place seemed to be overrun with perverts. this time it just feels completely alien to me I struggle to find anything to contribute, and the whole reason that Ep...

    Because I'm annoyed at the hypocrisy of this

    site which promotes the sharing of experiences. I've had one of my true experiences removed because it violated s.exual content rules! That's a laugh, as l don't write openly sexual stuff. But, no matter, I'll continue writing my stories , which by the way, l have published...

    ep is more real than real life

     I have been on ep 3-4 months now. Friends are leaving or have less time. It has been amazing - a World as it should be maybe. Where people talk. Just thinkin'. ep is a tough emotional environment. :)
