i feel fake

whenever i interact with people that i see often, i feel very 'fake'. i don't exactly know how to word it but i feel as though i am not being my authentic self. i know 'fake' has negative connotations, but i just feel like i'm wearing a mask and constantly being nice and it is just exhausting. people make assumptions about me based on this version i show them, but that is what i want them to see. i only show my real self to people i am close with, but lately that number has decreased. i am close with 2 people and we have a little trio, but lately i feel myself shutting off again and putting that facade back up that they worked so hard to take down.
