I Feel Vulnerable After Writing Ep Stories

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 135 People


    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Even Little Posts

    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...

    Hate It.

    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...
