    Living My Life To The Fullest

    When I was young, I loved my neighbourhood.  People would say good morning and look out for each other.  Where I currently live, people are so cold, selfish, petty and vindictive. One thing that I have noticed about my neighbours, if they dont like you, they will simply ignore...

    What If They Ignore You For The Wrong Reasons?

    Let's say they got the wrong idea about you, that happens... they turn you off, cut you out of their life, don't return your calls, emails and whatnot. You said something they took the wrong way... especially in a restricted form of communication like email or text. Well a...

    Ep Users

    I have a question.  If you add someone as your fan, would you communicate with that person?  The reason why I am asking is, when I joined EP, someone added me as his fan.  I try communicating with him and I even asked him a question and he just ignores me.  I dont...

    Stuck Up People

    I agree. I just find it hard to deal with

    because I'm not used to being ignored. Especially when it's someone that I interacted with daily. To watch them volunteeringly walk out of my life hurts. It's going to take some getting used to. I'll be ok eventually though.

    Couldn't Care Less

    Not everyone is going to like me. That's just the way it is, and I don't take it personally. I've got too many things going on to worry about what other people think of me. If they like me...great. If they don't...next.
