I love this site. It has given me a place to release my sadness, pain and sorrow. I have made friends and opened my very soul to this place. I love that I can say what's on my mind, express my feelings and lay my heart out on the table and know that I am accepted as I am.
I've never had that in the RW. Sometimes, though, I feel so angry when I come here. I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, and to express themselves as they need or feel they need to. My problem is with those who would come here and stomp upon the hearts that are laid out to bare, just because they can. They say, "you're just crying for attention."
That may be, but isn't that why we're here? Aren't we here to get the attention of others to read our stories, our experiences, to receive advice or acceptance for our deeds? Is that not the basic principal of EP, to share? Why do some people insist upon stomping upon us when all we are doing is sharing and contributing our lifetime experiences. If we choose to participate in some trivia or quiz that assumes to extract the essence of our personalities, then who are any of us to say that is wrong? I know it must seem a silly pet pieve, but this is mine. I think people should think before they comment on stories. One day they may find themselves in need of advice or acceptance.
