I have already shared things here that I have never shared with anyone else. I will probably share more things here that I could never share with someone face to face. I really can't imagine saying everything that I have said here to someone across the breakfast table ... and to be honest, having said some of the things I have said, I'm not sure I would want to sit across the breakfast table from people who had heard me say them!
By being anonymous here I can be honest. Totally and completely honest. I truly feel that I could not be this honest if I were not anonymous -- I think this is one of the beauties of EP.
I have not plans to post photos of myself or to share my email address with people... here on EP I am anonymous and plan to stay that way and I also plan to continue to be me ... totally open and honest and willing to say what I think and feel.
