I Feel Vulnerable After Writing Ep Stories

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 140 People

    Traumatic Memories

    I can share all day and night about the positive feelings- the emotions of bliss, love, excitement, etc. But when I do share the darker side, the moments in my life when I wasn't sure I'd live to see another minute... the abuse, the loss of children, etc.-- inside, I am shutting...

    "When we were children,

    we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable." Madeleine L'Engle

    Still I Write One

    I used to feel really vulnerable at first, then I met more people on EP and felt their love and care. Now I enjoy the honesty and freedom of writing my feelings without being judged.

    Sometimes...

    Occasionally i write stories about myself that i am not proud of... there are secrets that i keep even from myself upon occasion, and the idea of sharing them with the world is nerve wracking... and sometimes, the events I've recounted were so traumatic, that even writing about...

    What To Expect

    Am I going to get nasty comments on how I'm a *** or about how I complain too much and need to get a life? Am I going to get advice on how to fix everything and be expected to take it and suddenly life will be all better? Am I going to have my own personal pity party? I never...

    Hell Yeah.........are You Kidding ?

    As Marji, I wrote things.............I believe I carved a new road here on E.P. Back when I first joined, this site had not seen the likes of someone like me. A retired prostitute, a child of i.n.c.e.s.t., I wrote of the abuse I suffered at the hands of many men, my abortion of...

    I Understand

    I just posted a forum on feeling sorry for people who have no faith in Christ, and all hell broke loose. I reported and flagged the person who caused all the chaos, but I don't even know if that will make a difference. The EP staff suggested that I change my title of feeling...

    Vulnerable

    Sometimes, it does affect me too after I write a story.  Once I write, it is somewhat hard and then when the finish product is there, it seems harder to deal with.  If I go back to read it, I can get vulnerable.

    You put **** out there, stuff that you wouldn't dare talk about in real life, and then you wait for a response. I don't know what is worse, no response or a bad one.. I think none.. I could just as easily write this bollocks on paper and not expect a reply. I've written so...

    Sometimes...

    I do write about some very disturbing facts of my past. Sometimes after writing those types of stories, I do feel vulnerable and often a little tearful. But, on the other hand, I am glad that I wrote it down. :-) It's good to get that stuff out and into the open. It's more...

    I Feel Vunerable... and I Like It

     I've been so tight lipped for so long that it feels good to have some where to go to let it all out. When I keep everything in I don't feel vulnerable, but I do feel rejected. I realize now that opening up helps me to accept myself more and to worry less about what others...

    Being 100% honest and opening up is terrifying.

    I want to voice my opinions and experiences somewhere but it's completely new to me. I have multiple disorders and am kind of lacking my own personality due to childhood trauma but I hope that this will help me come to term with things and understand myself a little better and...

    Not Yet, But..

    I`ve never written an ep story, just joined.. but I can certainly relate.. because of my past experiences from other forums.. I guess it has a lot to do with social anxiety. the fear of beeing judged negatively by others. I probably have bipolar disorder (not yet been diagnosed...

    Yeah

    At times I wonder why I put stories up, I suppose its cause I worry about whose going to read them. Alot of times I want to talk about things because then it might help me get over them, but honestly a lot of times I feel people are just judging me. I don't really like people...

    Baby Steps

     I've been here for 3 years. Every time I write a story I still stay on the light side, funny side or the nostalgic side.  It may take me another  year or never to share all my experiences and feelings.  It's not easy to reveal emotions , events and...
