    are you afraid of being yourself?

    Hey this really does nothign to better anyone but are you people afraid of being yourself? I am not to be honest I am a full rebel and will not do what people really tell me if they try and tell me to do something I will do the opposite but if they ask nicely I would probably do what they ask depending on what is but I am also not afraid to act how I want in public. What about you guys?

    Re: are you afraid of being yourself?

    Yes, there are times when I am afraid to be myself. I used to not be that way until middle school. I went through some tough times during middle school emotionally and it made me very self-conscious of myself until my freshmen year of high school. During that time it was really difficult for me to even talk much less be myself. I’ve grown out of it, though. I had to learn to accept myself and know that I didn’t need anyone’s approval but my own. I will admit that there are still moments when it’s hard for me to express myself but I am much better then I used to be.

    Re: are you afraid of being yourself?

    After getting through high school fine and being who I am, I actually turned out to be a bit popular, I don't know why. But now, I don't give a damn what people think about it, I just want them to keep their opinions to themselves.

    I've had an ex change me in the past because I think he was either embarrassed to be around me with others or because I was too different. But I have vowed never to let anyone change me ever again. So now, I have dress in the emo style and I don't really care any more. I think I have gone past caring and its really a good thing too because I am a paranoid person but I think I've found the confidence to just ignore them.

    In school I never act myself. The only time I am truly myself is here on AO, with good friends, and at home. Not that my true self is bad, just a consider myself a fairly shy person. It takes me a while to warm up to people. When I do though I am a pretty cool guy if I say so myself XD

    Re: are you afraid of being yourself?

    I used to care what others thought about me and it got me into a lot of trouble. It made me seem like a little immature kid in some eyes. It wasn't till I went through a horrible marriage and found out that I don't have to be someone I'm not just to please the person I'm with. That if I was myself then maybe someone would care for me just because I was me. Well 4 months later I'm with a great guy and expecting. In that time people that know me tell me how much I have changed from an immature child to a grown adult. No I don't think I've matured fully but I think I'm pretty close to it. So what others think about me doesn't matter anymore as long as I have my friends, my loving boyfriend and our baby. Others can take their words and shove it.

    Re: are you afraid of being yourself?

    oh, well I hate acting my true self. I have issues with acting myself around friends at school because I'm afraid they won't like me really...in other words, I act like sasuke! The only time I do act myself is on here because...I don't really know, it's just something about this place thats makes me act like my overly hyper self~!

    I agree with you Sazzy who cares what others think? When I was in high school and even now I like pokemon, people made fun of me for it and I tried to convince them, however I finally learned that no matter what you do or say you can not change a persons thoughts so from then on I was myself. I didnt care who I was around, if people can not handel who I trully am, then they can go crall into their own world and leave me alone. and yes I here you on the "after high school being popular" type thing, it happend to me too, however I still have people who hate me but I have alot more friends because I can be myself and they like me for who I am, the same with my girlfriend/fiancee, she loves me for me and will never leave she doesnt care about my mood swings or what I like, hell she played my pokemon ruby game over christmas!!!

    Nope, not at all. A person is born alone and dies alone. Well except for twins, they're born together. Oh well.
    And no, I'm not afraid of being alone alltogether. As long as I have something entertaining to do, a motive and an adequate job, I have no reason to fear my loneliness.
