    I'd Say I Adjust My Behaviour

    I just try my best to understand where people are coming from when I'm with them. Sometimes too much. I can be too agreeable. But I disagree too. I wasn't always like this.I just expressed and demanded. Now I just change my behaviour without even knowing sometimes. Even when I...

    I Wish I Didn't....

    I grew up in a lower income neighborhood and most people there were not educated and didn't really care to become so; we were too concerned with surviving.  So, when I am around people from my old neighborhood, I tend to become a little more simple and real.  I don't...

    I Am Six Different People

    There is the me I am when I am with my parents or other relatives. There is the me I am when I am with my friends. There is the me I am when I am with someone I am in love with or have a crush on. There is the me I am when I am alone. There is the me I am when I'm with people...

    It's more like I emphasize parts of my

    personality depending on who I'm with. I'm more playful with my husband; I'm friendlier at work; I'm more reserved with friends from a traditional, conservative background and I'm louder and more opinionated with my brothers and sisters-in-law. It's what you do to navigate...

    I don't necessarily see it

    as a negative thing. I tend to act more free around close friends and I'm much more reserved and shy around strangers or people that have been nasty to me before; pretty normal I imagine.

    More like a cap or a limit to what I might say,

    so I would act more mature around older people or in very formal situations, but I would be more myself around people I can trust and just fellow random people :P

    If I am around someone I get along with

    and I feel would be accepting of my cooky personality then I am more casual. If I am around older people or people that I don't feel as much of a connection with then I act very proper. How open or excitable I am is based on how comfortable I feel and the environment I'm in...

    It Is Rather Naive

    I can be silly when the people around me are silly.  If the person is in a more serious tone, I am very serious and listen to them.  I often feel what others around me are feeling.  If the person near me is depressed, I am usually pretty sad too, for no reason...

    I Am Still Myself

    I just decide, depending on who I'm with and how comfortable I am with them, what parts of me I will show them and which parts of me I will keep on the low-low until I'm more used to them. I still show them who I am, just not all of me.

    I Believe

    We all do this. We don't behave the same with our intimate friends as we do with the lady at the licensing bureau, or with the clerk in the dress store. We all have many different masks that we wear. Some for wearing in public and some we wear only in private. Thanks goodness. I...

    Who Am I?

    I am guilty of doing this: adjusting my personality depending on who I'm with. If someone doesn't like my sarcasm, I stop making sarcastic comments. If they expect me to be cheerful and jolly even though I'm not, I force myself to act that way. If they don't like my true thoughts...

    With my family, I act kind've weird like I

    should be. With my friends or at school, I have a mask, hiding my emotions. On the internet, I'm myself, nobody that is close to me is able to criticize me.

    This doesn't make me a fake,

    it's just I can't say," Damn, I wish I was like, super scooper naked, like completely naked, and eating hummus and salsa off of my stomach." In front of my friends parents, which whom I met 5 minutes ago.

    Unfortunately. I'm a creature of extreme

    contradictions and opposites that somehow co-exist at the same time. I can appear to be one thing, but at the same time can be quite different underneath. I'm not sneaky (as such), the opposing parts are always there, and I don't deny any of them (when pressed, although I'm very...

    I do act a little more mature around older

    people and goofy around young people.
