    Its so upsetting to read peoples stories.

    Being abused, being sexually harassed, it really is so sad. This kind of thing shouldn't be happening in the world. Why can't we all just get a long, were all the same. Celebrity's, they're the same as us. We are all humans, why do we have to fight all the time, why do we have...

    Antidote To The Pain

    Whenever we extend Love, we experience Love’s blessing. The extension of Love does not always show up in the world in an appearance of form. It may be an appreciation as you look upon a family happily playing together. It may be an appreciation of someone sharing their journey...

    It's True That We're Built to Be Sad, to a Degree.

    I believe that I learned in anthropolgy class that humans need (biologically) to form bonds basically to further the human race. To find a mate and bond with  him/her and the fear and sadness that comes with losing someone ( any one really) with whom you feel you have bonded...

    Same

    ...and Im sure there will also be those who just came here to share experiences and stuff, who are generally quite happy, but I guess a lot of people find EP through trying to find somewhere to talk about how they felt - and of course, EP is a great place to start trying to feel...

    And I Understand!

    When I first came to EP, I was nothing but depressed. I only made an account here, in the first place, in a hope to find SOMETHING. I didn't know what... but I knew I had to talk with someone, anyone, at least let someone know of my pain. And I did get support here, but not only...

    Haven For the Sad

    How many sad people are there in the world? and how many actually show or are able to share that sadness or sorrow to their loved ones or to anyone for that matter? When we open up, the other person can help us find a solution.   Many times, while we speak, we are able...

    Depressed People On Ep

    We all get depressed once in a while. Life can really suck, and I would know. But I feel like there are some really really depressed people on this site who make themselves look so desperate. And I am not sure if they are really desperate, or if they are just acting desperate...

    Don't Cry

    I see a lot of sad people everywhere, and on Ep is no different. I'd like to say here that even though I'm just one person, on my computer somewhere in the world, I think about all of you who are sad, and I say a silent prayer for you all. It's difficult to be happy in this...

    Me Included

    I came here because I was sad. I was lonely and miserable and there were other people here who understood me and accepted the flawed human being that I am. Those here, like me who are sad... Can always come to me... Because I've been there.

    The most annoying type of people are the superficial ones that don't realize they are superficial. Like now you see my face and you suddenly can't talk anymore.
