    I am constantly changing.

    The most significant change in my life has resulted from embracing Eastern practices. Growing up in the U.S., and a wealthy state at that, Connecticut, I was incredibly misguided about what is important in life. As a result, I was consumed with envy, materialistic pursuits...

    I have to admit I've changed a lot

    since April 2013... I had my first sleepover with church girls my own age, I barely even looked at people anywhere near to my age since being homeschooled in September 2011... Being homeschooled wasn't that big of a change since I was basically a loner in public school... I...

    I feel like I'm living with a stranger

    and I hate it but I know this change is for the better. I've lost weight which is a goal of mine but it's completely changed the youthfulness of my face. I don't recognize myself in the mirror and that's only a surface level representation of this inner shifting. My habits, my...

    To all my friends who keeps telling me every

    second that I've changed, please try to agree to the fact that I've changed.. I know I wasn't like this before.. you may call it as weirdness, rude, strange whatever.. If you feel that I've changed, obviously you'd have done something in the past for me to behave that way now...

    I first joined EP- I think- four years ago.

    I was a lonely and miserable girl stuck in the house all the time, afraid to step outside. I had all these fears and ghosts from the past that haunted me and gave me a gloomy and terrifying perspective of the outside world. I couldn't go to college. I didn't have any money. I...

    I was an excellent student in primary school,

    until I turned 14 that is. I stopped listening to adults, I tried to connect with my peers more. It was a fail because I'm not a social person. My depression started before my 14th birthday and yeah it was a mess. Anyway, since then I've been worrying too much about what my...

    One year ago I was the worst person you could

    think of. My family walked out of my life, my friends walked away, I did things I am ashamed of. The fire department told me to grow up, I had a lot of bad repetition there. I had a boyfriend but I told him to get out of my life. I wasn't a very good role model for the baby. Now...

    I felt like such a moron today.

    I reverted to my old style of dress because it's what I felt I had available to wear, & I just felt... I don't know what the word is... uncomfortable? Like the clothes didn't fit me? Not in a physical sense, but... I like to express myself through what I wear, and I felt like it...

    I'm at a transitional period in my life

    and I don't know what to say or how I fully feel. I think I feel something building that wants to erupt but I don't know when or how it will manifest.

    I used to be what is unfortunately the

    "stereotype" of a Christian. I was loud-mouthed, ill informed, judgmental, I use to hate gays, and atheists. Then I actually over the years realized that I should love other people, and be kind, and not be judgmental of them. This change in my heart has even helped me to become...

    More on what exactly happened five months ago

    that flipped my world upside down: Someone noticed me, & it brought forth this life out of me that had been sleeping for years, maybe for forever. (Because I have NEVER had a high sex drive until the past five months!) And now I can't help but want to fully step out into that...

    can go through in such a minuscule amount of time. This EP profile is one I haven't used in ages, and I can't help but chuckle looking at the me I used to be. How could such a stark contrast of oneself not be humorous? In all seriousness I have matured, evolved and grown as we...

    Physically and mentally.

    My confidence and self esteem have grown. I'm pretty much a new (more attractive) me. I've learned to physically take care of myself. The first picture was about 10 months ago. I feel like a totally different person. But I love the new me.
