Sometimes It's The Only Thing That Helps Me Get By.....I am so thankful I came across EP. This sounds really pathetic and I apologize in advance for it but I came across it when I did a search for "craving to be held". I felt I was weird as it was something I was thinking about all the time so I goggled it and an EP story came up. I was moved by what I read and knew that I would really benefit from having a safe place to share all my thoughts and feelings.
That was almost a year ago to the day. In that time I have come into contact with some amazing people. I love speaking to them, sharing their lives and am honoured to read such powerful and moving pieces of writing on the site.
In a personal sense, it has been a lifeline for me. Whenever things are hard in my personal life, I know I can log onto EP and there will always be my blog or someone to confide in. I am SO thankful for that. Right now, I live a life where I feel like my thoughts and feelings aren't appropriate or cared about. I bottle everything up but here, I can be the real me. Amazingly, even after revealing my true self, people still want to be my friend and think well of me. That just means everything.
