    Well, How Do You Know?

    I don't think it's possible to reveal every single thing about yourself. But for the things you do share, is it too much information? It's always a good idea to be a little mysterious. But what do people want to know about you? I don't want people to ask me too personal questions...

    I Wonder, But Honestly....

    I feel that I am no different than anyone else here on EP. I have read too many horrible things that I could never imagine. Especially when it comes to children. I have a lot of moments here but so does everyone else. What makes them different to where someone may raise their...

    Uncertain

    I have been so silent about almost everything surrounding me for so long that now...when I finally want to tell the world about myself, I am really unsure just what to leave out. There is a part of my brain which just wants to reveal every detail, however sordid or mundane, and...

    It's A Struggle

    Sometimes I reveal too much, other times not enough. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish which is which. It makes me feel nervous, awkward, and most of all it's hard to trust anyone. Their perception may be entirely different than mine. It's so hard to know! I just try to go with...

    I often wonder what kind of impression I make. What people think just by looking at me. Is it obvious that I'm mute? Or that I dance? Or do they only see a ordinary teenage girl?
