    Lately I've seen so many posts on EP by people

    who say that they are proud to be White, Black, Asian, Latino etc. Then I've read some that say they find it difficult to like other races and some other very hurtful sentiments. What I can't seem to understand is why the need to say you're proud in the first place? Was there...

    People rather see, hear,

    or think what they want and deny the truth or even logic at that matter. If a banana says it's and apple long enough it'll start to believe it.

    Some Stories Change and Need to Be Erased

    What is a friend? Is a friend someone who you should give grace even when they cannot understand? I do think a friend is someone you make space for and care about even when they can longer have you in the front row of their life, so to speak. I have erased the original story...

    Circumcision is one of the heated topics

    debated about and I noticed that from stories I have read pro-foreskin people keep saying "Let the boy grow up and make the decision himself if he wants to get cut" but when a guy who's in his 20's or so on mentions that they want to get circumcised some of the females replies...

    people will complain

    for attention about things that are easily fixable, but won't fix things in their lives because they will have nothing to complain about, and risk losing the attention.

    Young People Romanticize Death

         I work with a lot of younger people and correspond with many.  A common thread I've noticed is their fascination with the death of somebody they may have known.  I don't think they recognize the permanence of being dead, or just how routine other people's death becomes...

    Here on the Experience Project,

    everything including "friendships" are an illusion. No, the people that I've talked to on here haven't filled the empty void of friendship because I never hear their voice or see their face. As I type this, I've pretty much given up on life.

    who speak English as a second language, their proficiency in reading/writing and conversation are usually on drastically different levels. Which one is better varies, but I find more often than not reading/writing is the better of the two.

    I really hate how this site is turning out.

    I wish there were more like-minded people to converse with and connect to. as a matter of fact I do miss the way how people used to be on Ep now it's just full of sex obsessed fiends and sickos.

    I've noticed that I get ignored a lot.

    Not by people that hate me or don't want anything to do with me, but casually during conversation. I'll say something and it doesn't get acknowledged or I'll be saying something and someone else cuts in. This happens to everyone but it happens to me several times a day...
