    Introductions..

    I guess its because im always afraid that first impressions will be lasting ones and i would hate to give someone the wrong impression of me  because my integrity is very important to me it feels like the only thing i got sometimes :-)

    I feel like people will judge me harshly. That they might think that I am boring. I am also afraid of them leaving me and not being my friend anymore. That really makes me sad.
