    Sometimes things happen

    which hurt you, you protect yourself with this so called "wall" to cover your true feelings, and then all it takes is one moment, one conversation... One person and the wall vanishes. Everybody notices the difference in your behaviour they even start to joke about how they...

    If They Only Knew

    I come across a bit...bit...non-wild.  But I've discovered a side to me I never knew existed.  And I like it.  A lot. ;-)

    No One Else

    No one knows the other side of me, save you lot here at EP in a moment. To be honest I really couldn't explain right, so I'll give it you in someone else's words;   I don’t really know how to describe it but my best way is that for example someone named Tom would...

    I Present Different Sides to Different People.

    There is an unconventional side of me that is not appropriate to divulge to certain people. I have to be careful which foot I put forward because people are often quick to judge and gossip. I can't change who I am and what I have done in the past so I just have to deal with it...

    Well No One Outside of Ep

    Two Parts of a Whole

    I feel like I have two parts of me. But only one ever shows up in front of anybody. That's because I don't want them to get upset or be sympathetic. And I don't want them to get hurt by what I trulely think and want to say. I always bottle the sadder, lonleier true side up. And...

    I'm Not What You Think I Am

    I get straight A's and go to church. I also spent my 15th birthday in rehab. At school I'm shy, have friends, and do my work. At home I obey my parents and get along with my sister. Outside of home and school I am a [now recovering] drug addict and an alcoholic. I...

    That's Why I'm Here

    There's a part of me that rarely appears - which is partly why I joined EP, because I want to practice bringing out that part of me. It's mainly all the stuff I find myself thinking, but never say, and the things I've realized about myself, but never shared.

    Not a Highlight of Mine....

    I do like to think I come across as a generally nice person, but, truth be told, I actually have anger management issues. Not a highlight I may say, but, all the same, it's there. Most of my mates who I've been with years now, have no idea, but, why would I tell them? It's not...

    Kind of I guess.  Just recently I started thinking about my sexuality more than ever before.  I think I might be bisexual, but I really don't know.  I have told only my best friend.  I only told him becuase he's gay and I felt he would understand.  I...

    Not All Is Up Front

     I admit there's more to me than I let on. Part of it is simple unwillingness to automatically dump everything out, and part is could be considered at great stretch almost a persona.

    So Many Roles

    To protect ourselves from being hurt, we build invisible walls and allow certain people in at certain times to see certain sides of us. We project an image of what we think people want us to be in order to be loved and accepted. Our behaviour changes to fit into the...

    Honestly I have 3 sides.

    1. I'm a goody tooshuies in my school. I put on a mostly fake smile and try to be kind and generous. It's like having a mask on, trying to hide the true "monster" you believe you are. 2. At home my mom thinks of me as a kinda devil. She feels I disrespect her by not cleaning or...
