    Lessons Learned

    In our walk of life, day to day, week on week, or perhaps months as they pass by. We live and learn. EP is no exception to the "rule". It is the Golden Rule. What goes around comes around. Or Just be nice to each other. We will always find many who do not share our ideas and...

    I have learned that everyone makes mistakes

    but that the mistake does not defy who you are as a person, it's how you deal with it that defy who you are as a person. If you are careless, evil, honest or even sensitive all depends how you deal with making your mistake. I make mistakes, most of the time ones that only had...

    I Am Not Alone

    You get to know people on EP not by faces or body types but by seeing deep into their souls You read stories about their lives, wants, and experiences that they have had or want to have.  You feel their loss, laughter, romance, heartbreaks, and needs as if it was your own...

    Things I learned from EP; I'm vulnerable. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, to a fault at times. I'm compassionate about many things and some of those I should keep to myself. I make "relationships" online that I should not invest so much of myself in. I've learned that...

    Valuable Lessons To Pick Up While On Ep

    EP has been the second interactive social site I've had the pleasure to join since AOL in the 90's. It's been a long time since my AOL days. If you're not careful, it's relatively easy to lose oneself in the social cyberspace of the internet. There's simply SO much to do and not...

    So Much Better!

    I feel so much better about myself and the little things I secretly like. They really aren't that bad at all compared to the overpopulation of sick f***s on here. Please, keep being sick and twisted, it boosts the self esteem of the rest of us.

    Joined A Few Hours Ago, Learned A Lot

    I just joined EP a few hours ago, and I always thought I'm the only one with such bad problems, but I realized there are quite many people with the exact same problems. There are 7 billion people in this world, 7,000,000,000, that's a huge number. And out of that quite a few...
