I want to become more genuine.

One example: I fake laugh at things so that it isn't awkward and stuff like that...I also don't want to be mean or want people to think I'm boring for
not laughing, because a lot of people laugh at things that aren't even funny and if I don't laugh people may think I'm a boring person.

Overall I just want to be more genuine. People like genuine people. Any advice, please?

Position yourself in situations where you can just be yourself. Maybe start with someone you know first.
Then you can gradually progress into situations you’re not familiar with.

Say what you really want to say in certain situations while maintaining a decent level of respect. Don’t be scared to come across as mean. Be honest with each word, it’s much better to express than withhold.

Once you understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, you will feel yourself come out of your shell more.
