For me, it's not.. You don't have to pretend to be someone. just be yourself.. don't be afraid of rejections..

Yes. It's not hard to show the real you. I guess It's very easy to do it. You should not pretend and you should not hide your true characteristics. I's more important to show who you really are.

It is for me. I grew up moving all the time so I got really used to not getting close to people. I tried to keep up a wall so I didn't get too attached to people, as I knew I'd move again soon. I'd adjust myself for each place I lived so I'd fit in. So now I'm working on taking that wall down. I'm' myself with my boyfriend. I'm working on being myself with the rest of the world.

I kind of know what you mean. I normally only share my real self with my friends. Professionaly I've made up a slightly different more serious and assertive character that easily immpresses potential employers. I'm really a person that doesn't get bothered by any thing very much. I people watch whenever I'm out so I see a lot of funny things peopl do. That makes my little mishaps look like a well choreographed dance manuver. I like to have fun and depending on who I'm with or where I'm at I may do something off the wall like make a funny face or walk around like there is something wrong with my legs. Some people can take a joke real good. Others are just too stiff to get with the program.

Sometimes I'm afraid to let other people know some not so good things about me, about my life, coz I'm afraid they'll misjudge be. (But it doesn't mean that I'll pretend). But then, no matter how I fear of rejection, I still choose to be honest with myself and to other people. Because I believe that it's better to be loved for who you are than to be loved because of your mask.

Yes, me too! You have only one life to live, why don't you live this life for yourself?
