A Weight Lifted Off My Shoulders

I have decided. I am leaving EP. Not for a holiday, not for I break. I am leaving for good.
The EP I joined a little over a year ago, quite simply, saved my life. I found friends, I found family, I found support and comfort.
And now, simpy put, EP is f*****. It is a hideous, disgusting place, not worth any more of the time I used to spend here. The s*** I now see, which I am unsure if was hereĀ  when I first joined, is SERIOUSLY starting to get to me. Groups about rape, s***, and too many other disgusting stories are a constant thing.
But it is more then that. Its the people here too. And I do not direct this at anyone in particular (and definatly not my cirlce), but you need to grow the f*** up already. We ain't in high school no more, the majority of us are adults. Who do you think you are to act this way? Being on the internet doesn't give you the right to treat people how you do.
I am done dealing with the c*** here. So they (along with plenty of other reasons I am afraid to say) areĀ the reasons I am leaving EP. And to be honest, I am glad I am. I am past needing EP, dealing with EP.
And no, I am not leaving straight away. I have things to sort out here before I go. But this is it for me and EP.
And as the great Kurt Cobain said, "it is better to burn out then fade away", and that is what I am doing....

my dear friend. i realize this is an old post, story, whatever. you still have supporters = i am one. keep on keeping on. you have a story to tell and many more that i would love to hear/read.

my time is limited too.

Never forget, Nephew, La Famiglia!!! We love you sooooo much and want only the best for you and if leaving EP is best; then so be it. I understand, this place makes me want to scream most of the time. You're in our hearts and minds daily and never forget you have family who adores you :) Lol, we certainly won't forget our favorite Aussie! Love and kisses from your Auntie Gia ;)

you will be surely missed by all a thanx to you for the amazing stories. cheers dude <br />
a goodbye from the humble fool

Like your Mum said, we all agree with your reasons and understand it's time to go. You are family and always will be so don't be a stranger. I'll send you my e-mail address so if J isn't feeling well enough to log into hers and you want to get hold of us you can always write me. I just wish I could convince your Mum to leave, I don't think this place is good for her anymore, either. Good luck and best wishes to our Irish/Aussie son :)

I'm tending to agree with amysangel's!!, my young friend! "Can't you try to ignore and stay because of the positive things"!!!!?? <br />
I will miss you!! so much, as we used to interact with our "blogthings", who else is going to laugh at my answers now!!!!??? I wish you were not leaving!!! you've been a member as long as i, i am so sorry RH!!! I am going to miss you!!! :-(

@ Miss AngelWings, my Sis, here I am :) Reece and you are family and I would never let one of you go without saying how much I care!<br />
<br />
Reece, if not for you, I am not sure where I would be right now.... that is the good side of EP. I understqand how you feel and have been feeling the same way of late. You're Old Man has asked me to not log in as often because it depresses and upsets me to see what goes on. It isn't the same place I joined. I feel good about you leaving because I've watched you grow and heal and fall in love with a wonderful young woman and I know you will be fine. You and Trooper and I are family and always will be and I haven't lost anything when you leave, I've gained a fantastic son and good friend that I love dearly. Now, I'm looking at a photo of you now and smiling.... don't forget to email me often and let me know how you and Miss Beth are doing. I will miss your smiling face on ep and your hugs, but we will always be in touch. Lol, one of these days I will have to call you and hear that Awesome Aussie accent :) Mwah, we love you Reece!

Pffffffffft don't worry about me Silly =p

Okay sweetie. I will try to be on more in the evenings.

**massive cuddles** I am going to miss you alot Red, although I am not leaving for a little bit yet OK

Reece.. I will sorely miss you! I know I haven't been on much but you and others here have helped me so much over the last three years. I hope one day to cross your path again. Good luck my dear friend.** hugs**

Thankyou KF, I aprreciate that **hugs**

your reasons are completely valid for leaving EP. i've been here for over 3yrs myself and have seen the site change SO much over the years....some good changes, but mostly, it's just different now. certainly not the same EP that i found a few years ago. overall, i think EP is still a decent site....we come here, we grow, we learn, we receive support, we get picked up when we're down, we help others find themselves....and then, when we're ready, we move on.<br />
<br />
i wish you the best of luck with everything you do in life ReeceH *hugs* :)

Thankyou heaps kitti **giant reece hugs**

*sighs* I am sorry to see you go ..... I am seeing more and more really down to earth , drama free people leave ... people like you made ep something of a refuge to come to .. and I fear what will be left of ep as more peeps like you go .. *hugs* I understand why you feel the need , been feeling a bit like that myself lately .. I wish you well *big huge Kitti hugs*=-D

Thanks FG, that means alot

I am sorry to see you go but I understand your reasons behind it.

Any time Kiddo, it was my pleasure **hugs**

Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for being so sweet, so kind and so caring. I wish you well and hope that your life is filled with happiness *huggles*<br />
<br />
I'm going to miss talking about liquid lunches..

You stalk plenty of people already

Not a chance I don't think

Incognitoisme- You don't have to apologise kiddo, I understand =)<br />
<br />
amysangel- I have been ignoring it, I am tired of trying to any more. And the positives, there are too little of that any more.<br />

i admit ep isn same but ...cant u try ignore n stay coz of the positive things n not the negative?<br />
hugs,i ll miss u if u leave..

Thanks Reece...sorry not been about late..Ep has been EVIL! <br />
<br />
<br />

Incognitoisme- Definatly Kiddo, we will keep in touch for sure.

Oh..How sad, but I cannot deny Ep is not what I first experienced near 2 years ago, so many changes, half the time I cannot even talk to people because of all the updates... It is becomming too much like other social networking sites, and less of the origional idea that made it incredible! I will miss you..I hope maybe we could exchange e-mails or something Reece..Much love! AviX

SuperMother2010- Thankyou<br />
