    My Way Of Life

    I am a nocturnal goth, practically the only goth in my area. I'm a depressed loner, so I normally do everything alone. I like rock/metal music and I am a beginner swordsman and guitarist. I claim a lone wolf's habits and would rather hang out with adults than people my age. I'm...

    I'm still around and kicking friends.

    Just still dealing with something that hopefully should wrap up next week. I will be here on and off, but will really be back when what I'm dealing with is over. *hugs* all!!

    My Dreams

      This in my guide for what I want in a male for when I decide to settle: 1. He is going to be my equal. He is going to walk BESIDE me, not in FRONT of me, or BEHIND me. 2. He is going to have a sense of humor. I am too funny sometimes. No one besides...

    Sometimes I found myself.

    But I always afraid of what people can think of me. You can say fear of prestige or fear of anything. To be yourself, it's challenge.

    For many years I have felt like I just was a

    waste of space. I felt like something was missing. A strange as It was, when I was standing there, bound to the wall, getting caned, I found the part of me I have been looking for, I have awesome new friends who really cares, and I am finally happy with my life.

    Having said "me too" (god

    that feels like "I do"), the very next thing i want to say is that i don't really know if i have anything more to say(?). This happened once before many years ago, when all of my experiences and ideas seemed so transient that they weren't worth saying out aloud or talking about...

    I'M Content With Myself Now.

    I'm going to cut to the chase. I used to be depressed, and I used to cut. This went on for at least four years. But here in the last 3 months, I have been meditating. I've picked up yoga, and I can honestly say I've found myself. I've connected with my spirit animal and have...

    It is possible that I wrote a story here

    already, but it was censored by the EP police. So in protest I won't put another one here. Somewhat related, though, you can check out some of the mainstream things that are also preventing the natural growth and development of individuals, such as this statistics-heavy video...

    Deja Vu!

      I met a man recently who has went through similar tests and trials as I have been through. This man is the exact replica of my troubled personality. I look at him and see a person who is hideing his pain behind tears of a clown and I can relate and only watch in...

    My Journey!

    I don't know if I have written a story like this before... so I'm sorry if this a repeat! The trouble with having so many stories on EP (over 2,000), is that I tend to forget what I have shared or didn't share already! My brain likes to play repeats! =p Anyhoo...my good...

    Well, Hi, I’m Jessie. For me writing has always been a pleasure and a burden. What to write, where to start, how to write it? God, I usually get so anxious that I resist any urge to put pen to paper. And yet for some reason, today is different, today I am not afraid...

    I never like the "found myself" thing.

    I feel I can do the best.

    I know that. I know I am capable of doing a lot of stuff. But at some point I lose my control of myself with silly action that postpone any real success. I need more how to master myself better.
