    Does anyone else feel like they have to fake it to make it? Whenever I"m really honest about feeling low in my day to day relationships I feel really bad about it. And often choose to just fake it through the event.

    Whenever I do it makes me feel lonely inside, but I also realize that it's the best behavior for other people to still like you and have a good time. It's like your social responsibility is to be cheery and interactive.

    I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have both SF and a counseling group to deal with how i sometimes feel. Does anyone else feel like this?

    I feel the same, it seemes that when im with my friends I have a totaly differnet personality, im cheery, cracking jokes and all..... And even in those moments I feel bad deep down inside for not talking about what I really want to talk about, I know they would never hang out with me If I was demonstrating how depressed I am all the time, and people dont give a shit about other peoples problems.

    i fake it around my family, but with good friends and SF and my shrink i don't have to put on a front. you might be surprised by how supportive your friends are if you start to open up to them. my friends are a caring, compassionate lot.

    Certain people I have to fake it around. Well, almost everyone. I've yet to meet anyone I can completely open up to :laugh: Sucks for me.
