    Space In Ep Too

    There are times when you have to take a break, and break from EP is no exception. A break from work (holidays). Break from family (not a family break), break from society, etc and of course break from my ex... what ever the reason be, it gives time to gather our thoughts and...

    I love people who are sweet

    and who are lovely.... However, EP guys please DON'T message me too much. I'm the type off person who's quite difficult. I need a lot of space. Please respect that or I will block you. Thanks.

    I Rarely Get It

    Space that is. All morning long at work, I get very little space as I care for very young children. I love kids, but they don't give you much space. Then the rest of the day I am with my two small kids. My daughter especially is always on me, like a cat. I love that she...

    I love my family. My husband is awesome kids

    are typical teens. Life is good. But lately I feel like I just need space. Time alone. Not like move out or leave but like a few days of no one needing or wanting me for anything. They love me but I feel like they are depleting my energy and I need to find a way to replenish...
