I think part of my problem is that I'm never open enough with anyone and I never truly say how I feel when I feel it. I always put up a bit of a front with people because I think that if they got to know the real me, they wouldn't like the real me. I have opinions on things that aren't exactly popular with everyone and I think I experience the world just a little bit differently to everyone else. But should I start just respecting myself enough to say how I feel for once instead of what I think people want to hear? Because I feel miserable always pretending for the sake of fitting in. Feels like I'm living a lie. But how do you not let people get to you if they dislike you for who you are? I always take things like that too personally.
