    And If You Don't Like It, Then F*** You

    As you can probably tell from my story title, I am quite fed up right now.  Not exactly in my usual mood, but I don't care. Before this upsets anyone, please don't take any of this personally.  Most of this is addressed to my family, especially my mom.  A little...

    The Only Choices

    I'm just a mass of contradictions and nerves and opinions. A real work in progress. In progress each and every day, each and every breath. Someone special yet no one special. I am me, I am who I am. For good or bad. Whether you approve or disapprove. Whether you like or...

    I Cry, So?

    I've always been the way I was as a young person as I am now. Mom had nine of us to deal with, and with teens, she had her hands full. For me being the baby, It was always, "Play in your room!" So I learned with an out of this world imagination and an interest in...

    I Am Me

    I'm a little ****** up. I know that and I'm willing to admit that. Unfortunately it has led to me losing many people as friends because they don't want to deal with my crap. It really used to bother me until I realised that I've got some great friends who are willing to put up...

    I Am ECF

    I am Crystan, but also Emberly. I am confused often about how I feel. I don't understand why my father molested me. I am overweight, but trying to lose weight. I am scared of the night. I am a previous self-harmer, but think about it everyday. I am seventeen. I am a fan of scary...

    I Don'T Really Care

    I am who I am, and if you don't like that then just leave. I don't want people to try and change me. I'm not going to change. It's as simple as that. So honestly you can ***** but I'll just say "good for you" or leave, it doesn't really affect me if you leave. There's only one...

    I am not here to be another version of you,

    so that you feel less frightened, I'm not here to reflect you, make you feel better, agree with you or fulfil your expectations. I like you, as you are, but I don't want to be you. Be Aware.

    Tired Of Being What They Want Me To Be.

    Like I've mentioned before that I would act and say what others wanted to see and hear. I believe that might have contributed to some of my sadness at that time. However now I am just me. If you don't like it I really don't care. I'm not going to live MY life how any one wants me...

    Nobody Really Knows It All

    Nobody really knows everything about me, not even my parents or closest friends. I don't know if anyone has ever tried to figure me out. I used to walk with my head down but I have grown stronger. I have told people a lot about myself, but they know that's not everything. People...

    Hard Case

    I'm stubborn, cute, infuriating, rigid, sympathetic, resolute, caring serene - I'm a handful. I'm a hard case, there are those who absolutely love me and all my idiosyncrasies while plenty only tolerate them for a while until they can find something else to move onto. This is who...

    Basically

    There are days that I hate myself and I find nothing but flaw in everything about me, but overall my general attitude is just that: Take it or leave it, cause I will change for no one, and I do/say/wear/love/think what I want without regard to haters.

    I sometimes wish I could be someone else in real life or even start a false profile here on EP , but I don't have the talent or maybe I'm just too honest or not playful enough . Life is complex enough without trying to mix it up worse . While I may not always like who I am , I...

    I'm a witch. I'm weird.

    I'm addicted to popcorn. I ******* love cats. Dark humor is the best humor. I love metal. I'm a hypocrite. I like my pets more than I like people. I'm a batcrap piece of work. If I guy can't accept me with my insecurities or help me adjust, then oh well.

    It was in 1978 that i first really hooked into the musical genius of Fleetwood Mac. They so hit a chord with that summer of musical headonism for me and my buddies. I had gotten out of nelson, was 19 and sick of being stuck in a place that offered little excitement for me.  I...

    Here's Your Hat and Coat, There's the Door!

    I am me! That's all I can say in a nutshell. I am not willing to change myself for others, or to act or pretend to fit in. I just can't care to! Most of my life, until age 21, I tried to be and feel like others wanted me to. Funny, as I was Goth, since teen years. And the...
