    No Bullshit, Just Be Honest With People.

    Its ****, isn't it, when people take you for a idiot, when we can see right throught there bullshit. They need to cut the stupid crap, & just say what they mean & mean what they say. Make communication, just that much fricken easier. :)

    Think before you speak,

    I hold on to every word you say to me. Everything that spills out of your mouth means something and I analyze it for hours and try to figure you out but it's impossible. I just wish that in the heat of the moment especially during an argument you would wait and be level headed...

    It's ridiculous when some people think

    that religion is the based on anything people did in life, the good or the bad, the right or the wrong. I don't think so.. No matter what religion you are believe in, how many GODs or GODdesses you are worship if you can't do good things to people around you, that's all just...

    Why Do You Torture Me?!

    If you have something to say to me, come out and just say it already! Don't fumble about the subject like a drunken circus performer, just dive in and get to the chase! It's beyond annoying when I practically have to play charades to get you to say what it is that is actually on...

    One thing people have to understand when it comes to me... I appreciate when people are upfront and honest. Tell me the truth even if you think it's going to hurt me. ...don't tell me what you think I want to hear. At the end of the day I want to walk away from EP knowing the...

    No hidden meaning or manipulation!

    I dislike it when people deliberately test your mind to see what they can mess with and say one thing but mean another... As well a lot of people these days are all talk and so when it comes to it their actions says a different story and then you think hmmmm whats going on...

    Sometimes people say they want the truth, but they really don’t. I don’t intend to sound mean but, most people honestly just want their egos stroked. They want a reply that fits their desires. Of course, there are people who really do want an honest answer. And, there’s no...

    So many people on EP write stories about

    wanting true friends to share everything. But, most of them just login for few minutes and then sign off. How can they expect good quality friends if they are really very busy and can't spend even few minutes on this site?

    "Just Kidding" The Ultimate Annoyance

    I am sick of people saying something hurtful, something that just breaks my heart, and then they say, "O! Just kidding!" I don't know who you are, what you do, or what you think you just said, but to me those words really hurt. Call me oversensitive, but I thought this group was...

    Saying What You Mean Is Speaking From The Heart

    I like people who say what they mean and mean what they say.That is the way i try to live my life.The problem is, in my current marriage, that was not a possibility. We were not a happy couple, and so there was always a hesitancy about what you can say or should say. Consequently...

    I don't expect perfection in people. We all make mistakes. We all wonder around not sure of some things, not knowing where one choice will lead to the next. That's all ok.But we definitely have a choice of what we say and how we say it and if we say anything at all.Doesn't it...
