I Have Changed Since Joining Ep

Time May Change Me 122 People

    Thank You.

    I debated for a while over whether or not to share this story and where to place it, but here it is. I once found the group "I am so thankful for EP" and joined.  Then months later when updating my experiences, I decided to "change my mind." ...

    I Was Once Broken....now I Am Not As Broken I Guess You Could Say...lol....

    So when I came to EP, a little over a few years ago...I was really broken...Death was on my mind all the time. I couldn't find a reason to live, or to hold on anymore. I just didn't want to deal with "life" anymore. I was at a very scary part in my life...

    Still a Screwup But a Loveable One :)

    Whew, have I. One thing I love about EP is that it changes me, turning me into someone definitely more relaxed. I met amazing people who see me just the way I am and cool with it. The miracle is some of them even love me for it. I found friends to be silly with, to talk...

    Strange Time

    When I joined EP in the early part of '09 which I was going through some strange times.  Marriage was in serious trouble, had no friends to speak of, working then home.  Trying to do everything I could for the family and not doing anything for me.  Starving myself to lose...

    EP Changed My Outlook

    I've been on EP for over a year now (used to go by another name but felt it needed to be  changed).  Over the last year, I  have discovered so many things about myself that needed to be changed and things that should have never happened.  But all in all, it...

    Ep Opened My Eyes

    I didn't know there were so many cruel young people online that do not have empathy for others. I have met many understanding, nice people too, but I am amazed at how many young people today are truly nasty and self centered.

    So Much

    I was not an honest person when I 1st joined EP. I was so afraid that no one was going to like me. No one in my life liked the real me, and I just wanted to be liked and accepted, so I was not me, I mean, I was, but I wasn't. I tried to be someone I wasn't, eventually it came out...

    Body, Mind, Soul

    It's been not quite 3 months.. and I barely recognize myself, lol.  I've changed, body, mind and soul.  I've lost 15 lbs.. and I'm halfway to my goal.  I've discovered that I have thoughts worth sharing that others are interested in.  And I've had a spiritual...

    Now when I go out into public, I wonder how many people I walk past are wearing diapers for purely recreational purposes.

    And Continue to Change..........

    Mainly for the better. I am slowly learning about my deeper self. I am finding that I am not as alone as I've always felt I was. Slowly coming out of my shell............ My circle has a LOT to do with that, but I would never have met them if not for EP, so yes I've changed since...

    When I first joined EP, I totally stalked the Confessions board. Now, unless I'm bored, I usually don't go near it. Mostly because there is a lot of drama incited in the confessional and, by avoiding it, I don't get sucked in. Besides, nowadays, I'm too busy stalking my EPeeps...

    A Kaleidescope of Change

    I've changed since joining EP. I am quieter to a point and decidedly more balanced. Maybe even more reserved and aloof in appearances to the outside world. Probably more cerebral - as I work through my issues or the problems of others on EP. I've become more philosophical and...

    I'm not sure how much of it is just life in general and how much of it is a result of my experiences here on EP, but dayum have I changed. I think its for the better, but, only time will tell!

    Still Changing

    I am not the same person I was when I first joined. It's been almost two years, and it's amazing just how much I've matured since then (some of my old stories actually make me cringe when I read them and see how whiny I used to be). It's also been a wonderful way to finally let...
