A lot of people seem to think I'm an 'interesting' person. For example, my ex would always tell me that I was a special person and he'd never met someone he could talk to every day without getting bored (we talked every day long before anything romantic happened between us) while another guy said he could tell I had a 'natural brilliance'. The first one is understandable as he was my boyfriend, but the second guy was a virtual stranger! We'd been talking for less than a day! I've also had a male friend tell me that I'm interesting, while a female friend said I have something about me that draws people in.
I'm definitely not special in any way. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I'm not a particularly interesting person. I feel like I'm tricking these people into thinking I'm something that I'm not. People think i'm this mysterious and interesting person when really, I'm battling with my mind every day and I'm really suffering on the inside. I just want people to see me and like me for who I actually am, how do I make this happen!

Honestly just be yourself, life is way too short to be someone that you are not
i suffer from anxiety/depression too but honestly maybe these people like you for who you really are and that's how you know that you truly have great friends when they accept you for who you are
Me and my friend used to talk everyday, but its not the same anymore coz I would do anything to get those moments back
I guess what I am trying to say is don't change who you are for somebody else because the right people who accept you for who you are will come into your life and just be happy
