I Feel Vulnerable After Writing Ep Stories

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 Understand
