    !!! Not that I’m an expert in this whole ‘separation’ and 'goodbye' stuff but, in life there is nothing that lasts forever. People come and go. One minute they are with you, the next minute they’re not. So, it’s not surprising. However, I’m not arguing or saying...

    It's like a weird phobia Whenever someone says

    goodbye I get really anxious and I start to get a little clingy like I will drag on the convo. I honestly have no idea why I'm like this but hey we all have quirks

    Well after much thought,

    I have decided it is my time to walk away. I bid you all farewell. I am experiencing this much like a death. Leaving now feels more like my choice rather than waiting until the last day and it be taken from me. This place has been not only a wonderful experience but a blessing...

    It's almost kinda funny how people can connect

    and get to know people through a screen. This chance is a life, this life is their world. You changed it. Regardless of whether for better or worse, you changed it. They would never be the same without you. A "hello, how are you", fifteen seconds of your time, changes a life...

    The last story I will write on EP.

    It's sort of the end of an era for me. I first came here in June of 2011. I was lonely in a marriage that was a sham. We weren't ready to walk away from it yet. Maybe we hadn't finished hurting each other? Maybe we didn't have enough money to separate? Maybe we had been together...
