"being yourself"...when you're a bit of an arse in some ways? watch

    I'd feel more liberated if i could just be me without thinking, but if i just behaved as me, I probably wouldn't be liked by most people. I feel really trapped right now behaving as I do, but I imagine it's better for others taht I behave how I do. They wouldn't like me otherwise anyway...I know that from early school years when I'd be "me".

    I'm not sure if the positive effect of me suppressing myself outweighs the negative it has on me. I want to feel liberated, I used to when I behaved as me. I hate having to check everything I say and hide who I am.

    Stay true to yourself, for example i come raw on this forum just like how im raw in real life, some folks pos rep me others neg me

    honestly, its better for you to have friends who like the real you because eventually the real you will come out and no one likes fake people.
