Hey people, I'm EscapistElite. Okay, strictly speaking that's not really true. But it describes me well enough. I'm good at being somewhere else. I'm a good liar as well, whenever I can be bothered. Serves me nicely when I need to be someone else.

Unfortunately.. I do very well at deceiving myself too. I'd like to share my story here one day. Again that's not really true. I wouldn't like to, but I do want to. Yeah that's it. Want to. I don't really know why though? Is it because I need to? I'm not sure at the moment.

I'm not really always one for words, but I belong here on this forum. I would even if I never made another post. I find that conclusion slightly uncomfortable.

I'm not sure what else should go into an introduction. I'm in my early 20s, I'm male. While the latter seems more uncommon here, neither is something I care greatly about.

So far I've learned 2 things from this place. Firstly, I'm not triggered very easily. Or I don't know if I am in fact triggered. Even worse, maybe I'm just deceiving myself again. Strange.

Secondly.. I'm not alone.

:)

Welcome escapistelite!

Many of us are adept at deceiving ourselves - you're certainly not alone in that. It can become a way of life, of survival. This is a wonderful community of support and even if you never post again, which is certainly allowed, I hope you're able to take some support from those of us that do post.

Survival in solidarity, my friend. If you need help navigating, feel free to pm me.

Thanks for the welcome guys.

The more I look at this place, the bigger it seems to get. So many forums.

I still don't know how exactly to approach this.. Where to go next. I'm not sure it should be the story forum. I need to adjust to even addressing it. But I'll try.

Hi EscapistElite,

Welcome to Aftersilence :tealribbon:

I'm a lot like you! Very good at deceiving myself, but a lot as changed over the past couple of years. I guess what i'm trying to say is you'll start catching yourself doing it, or you'll have someone to tell you that you are doing it.

Please let me know if you need any help with the forums. I'd be happy to help.

Mandy
