    You may think this site is simply a gathering

    place for freaks and misfits, but that's far from true. I have met some intriguing people who have opened my eyes to a whole new world. One friend is probably fast asleep right now on the other side of the globe. But when he awakens, my inbox will get that little ding, and a...

    Maybe he comes to inspire me.

    The inner passion help me lots. I do work more to forget the feelings about him. I got success and will get. He is still next to me and I will never tell him how I miss him .

    The Story of 'US' from the Individual Statuses We Posted

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...

    Everyone Has Something to Teach Us ..

    The following was sent to me at work and I think its just wonderful. It is written by BRIAN  A CHALKER. People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person. When someone is...

    They Come & They Go

    The title speaks for itself. I believe people come into one's life in order to push them to the next level, even if it's only a small favor, when you're down they pick you up, if you need help with the smallest task, you get assistance. Others are there to influence you either...

    Me Being Me

    It may be an online meeting or a soul you bump into at a store. But I honestly believe that I carry a little part of everone I've ever met with me daily. Its gotten me through tough times or maybe just given me a smile or a laugh. But I can never say that anyone I've met is not...

    We may not understand why,

    it may take a long time for the story to unfold. But I do believe that some people are meant to be part of our life, that there is a reason our paths crossed. Sometimes the person is only in our life for a brief moment, but long enough to change us, to make a difference...

    that everyone who comes into your life is there for a reason! It may be a simple encounter in the street. It could be a more intimate connection you never expected. Heck, even the people you communicate with here on EP...everyone you meet is there in your life for some reason...

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    but simply because we recognize or see something in them that we are longing for. It can be kindness, wisdom, humour, love or whatever else we are yearning to find and can see glimpses of in them. Sometimes they fulfill that need and move on, sometimes we discover we were wrong...

    Consider

    Some people have had tragedy in their lives. Truly hard events that shake their world. But for many the things that hurt us, the things that cause us distress are the smaller things. The things that in the grand scheme of things are small...and perhaps petty. But it's funny how...

    If you keep on thinking

    that every person that will come in your life will hurt you(so you stay away), then you'll always have yourself. And if that's the case, I hope you treat yourself right.

    Some come into your life

    and change you in a profound way. I've been focusing lately on negative aspects of that because it involves heartache but tonight I'm beginning to see that anything, any person that causes your heart to smile is worth the change! To live in the moment is always a blessing!

    I do believe they come into your life

    for a reason, I just wish I could figure out the reason. You are an enigma to me. I can not figure out your life, your priorities, your motivation. Just when I feel I have a grasp on you, the logic and reasoning slips through my fingers. From one horrible man to one who is...

    Some people come into your life in

    such a profound way. Critical things changed to allow each element align, and two people meet in the right time, right place. I want to follow each of these to the end - see where that road leads.

    An interesting person you have met.

    So a week back, I went to watch the movie Interstellar with one of my friend. As we went to purchase our tickets I felt a tap on my shoulder. I immediately froze and slowly looked behind; there was this guy with a goofy smile on his face and he awkwardly told me hi. I looked to...

    If you attach your value to those unaware of

    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    The challenge is knowing

    when to let go of these individuals who crossed your path for a reason, if only for a moment. It's not easy but letting go must sometimes be done. Accept the reason, add the story to the repertoire of your life, and move on down your chronological timeline.

    the world is small, and others do suffer in

    similar as we, therefore I don't believe certain people come into your life for a reason. I think we find that one person by chance and settle. There are others around, look at support groups for example. Don't trick yourself.
