I Left and Came Back to Ep

    Sheepish Smile

    I distinctly remember contributing a story last summer where I said something to the effect of, "I'll never delete my account, because I know I'd only come back." And then what do I do? So nearly everyone in my circle from last year knows I'm back and is in my circle again. I...

    Risky Business

    It's risky business when you fall in love on Ep. There's always a big chance you will get hurt. I've been through it a few times that's why I left. I needed time to heal myself so I took about a year's break from Ep. When I felt a little better I returned because I missed it here...

    My Long Break

    I joined EP back in 2009, after finding the site by accident. People were very friendly and welcoming, so much so that EP became a part of my daily routine quite quickly. As I began to share experiences my "popularity" grew, however I still felt disconnected from the world as a...

    The first time I left I deleted my account.

    ... I met this boy that wrote an unlikely story of his struggle. We started talking, I, of course, starting with a lie of living in New York when in reality we just liked an hour away. We had a misunderstanding, a miscommunication and the talking stopped. Then he left ep , by...

    I suppose I will write my experience.

    I left in 2011 because I don't remember. In 2011 I was dealing with what I was dealing with now. Unsure about my place in the world. EP is truly spectacular and should be commended at the work they have put in. People come together to share experiences to help each other. It's...

    Back then the meaning of experience project was

    to reach out and help people with their struggles. Now all I see are pre - teens, trolls, and creeps smudging the mission of EP...Sighs~

    Who hasn't, i guess. I came back

    because this is the place that started everything. My entire life changed when I found ep. ****, ive even occasionally started capitalizing my "I"'s. I had to come back to my ground zero. I'm lost.

    Well, Sort Of.

    I first joined EP four and a half years ago. I was a very prolific member of this site for about two years. Eventually, I started logging in less and less. I never deleted my original account, I just do not want to associate with it anymore. Don't quite have the heart to...

    It's Been A While!

    I left EP years ago for many reasons. Things began to feel superficial here, and I spent more time debating stupid things than using the site as it was intended, and as I had intended to use it. I'm back now, and so excited to have this little nook of the internet available to me...

    Yes, I've Returned

    I was on here for a while, and I had made a bunch of friends. The one of the people I had become closest to left, and then a few others, and I found myself not having the time to be on here like I wanted, and spending too much time missing people when I was on. So I left. I...

    I Came To Ep To Escape And Share The Things I Couldn't Elsewhere

    I Joined EP a few years ago when I was at several important forks in the road of my life. I needed a place to hash out my thoughts and try to understand who I was and who I wanted to be. Things have changed a lot for me since I joined, but I have found myself missing my hidden...

    Debating On Coming Back

    Well, I left because of a comment left on one of my stories about my rape. It really hurt me to read what this guy wrote to me. But, I suppose this site has caused me more happy moments than sad, so... I'm back lol

    They Always Come Back

    So, I got busy with school and something resembling a “social life” during my time off here. I really enjoyed myself (for the most part, aside from the usual stressors). But I found it hard to hold out creating a new account for a WHOLE MONTH! I missed too many people on here...

    I left EP awhile back because i could not stand all the drama. I came back today and i am vowing that i will not get involved in any drama this time no matter what happens. I'm just going to read and comment on stories, maybe post an occasional story and that will be about it...

    You're Not The Only One...

    I think it's difficult for anyone who really becomes involved with EP on a regular basis, posting stories, comments, making friends, etc., to leave and never come back. I left about two years ago and came back over a year ago. I was gone from EP for about a year. I was in a...

    Back Again.

    I haven't been on here for two years, since I was 16. I felt the need to come back because I am just totally lost with my life right now. It helps to have a safe place to just let everything out and whatnot... I have probably changed a bit as well. So this should be interesting...

    The first time, I met at least one really good long-term friend here who I still talk to almost every day. I met a casual but long-term acquaintance here also. Back then there were at least 15-20 other people who made EP a great time, though, and I don't know how to get back into...
