    Ok after some hard thinking about this one I

    think I see this in a few ways, if your talking about EP then you can either put yourself out there without fear or prejudice and let people know who you are depending on your level of self confidence and they can either accept you or not. or you can keep things to a basic level...

    Often, I will want to just spill the beans

    about myself. Something about "purging," I guess. Sometimes, it is good. Many times, it is not. So, the question is: "How much is too much?" For example, everyone here now knows that I am transgender and have been known to present publicly as a woman from time to time. However...

    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...

    Sometimes I Just Want To Vent...

    I've been harboring many secrets about my life until about a year ago when I met and married my wife. She listened to me and gave me trust and understanding. But most of all she shared her love with me. Though I have more than my share of stories to tell, there's one aspect of my...

    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 Wonder, But Honestly....

    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...
