    The Ex-sister-in-law

     She is driving me crazy. By all means I should despise this woman. In a single episode she tore down something that has been building for years. I was never close with females in general. Being one myself was enough and of course there was my mom and my aunt, g-mother and a...

    Subject Matter

    I've danced pretty well about certain subject matters here on EP over the last two years. Not just for privacy reasons, but mainly because I've been unwilling, unable to share my feelings. I wish I could describe these matters which are taboo for me. I wish they didn't trigger...

    Yah It's Caused Me The Most & Least Problems

    Plus side to being dispassionate is that I'm not easily offended. My day doesn't get ruined by someone's comments or actions. I'm unaware of bad occurrences so I don't suffer like others do. I don't know how to feel most of the time, in most situations. Problem with how I am is...

    In General, About Everything I Never Really Know

    I feel like sometimes my feelings aren't appropriate for the situation.  In a situation where I should probably be angered or envious or extremely upset, I find myself feeling calm and undisturbed.  However, there seem to be other situations in which I can't avoid...

    Sick and Tired of Everything.

    I don't know how to feel about life. One day I want to live it, one moment I want to live it, on second I want to live it, and the next I want to die, I want to cry, I want it all to fade. I don't know what to think about relationships. I want to love with all my heart, but...

    A Wonderful Story Full Of Hidden Anxiety Masked By Defense Mechanisms;

    This is definitely not my style. I am the type of person to bottle up all of the bad emotions and let the finer things in life bring me happiness... or atleast that is what I tell people. The truth is happiness has never come easily for me. I always had to make it myself. I had...

    No, I Legitimately Dont Know How To Feel...

    I mean I knew how to feel once. And it's not that I can't feel anything at all. I feel love for the person beside me. In fact, I can't make myself unfeel that feeling toward them. Otherwise, I feel nothing. It's different from the numbness, more like I feel lost. I can't figure...

    This Is All So Weird

    Things are better than they have ever been with my ex and I. However, this is all including due to distance. Him traveling all the time. Him getting the right help and us being clear that we are not married anymore. Keeping distance has kept us sane. A month of calm passed by...
