I Notice Alot of People Are Sad Here

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 216 People

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Antidote To The Pain
