I Have 'friends' Who Don't Know The 'real' Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 613 People

    Only a few know what kind of a person I truly

    am. Rest of them are the people I socialise with.

    It's hard for me to show the real me around

    everyone except certain people. I know I hide behind a '***** facade' so that I won't be judged but I'm getting tired of it, I wish we didn't live in a world so judgmental.

    None of my friends in school knew the real me.

    None. They knew a tiny bit of my personality: shy and quiet. Antisocial. I never talked about my depression and they never really asked. They never knew I was hospitalized in a mental hospital for 2 weeks when I was 17 and they didn't know I was in a similar home 9 or 10 months...

    Friends, Family, Even Myself At Times

    I think it's a facade' exactly.I'm not being fake. I think it's just a different part of the same person. I tend to act differently around different people. I know I'm not the only person who does. Some people say I'm really outgoing (too much in fact) some say I'm kind of shy...

    I've loved dressing as a female

    since I was 7 years old. Didn't realise until late on that I really should have been born a female.

    You Don't Know The Real Me...

    I have friends who don't know the "real" me, they don't see the "real" me, because I choose not to show it, I don't let people see the "real" me, because i know once i do, that is going to leave me opened up to get hurt all over again. I'm not going to open myself up to that hurt...

    Yes I have a lot of such friends

    who don't know the real me. I don't share the real me with everyone as people don't take it very well. I don't talk about myself to a person unless I know they will accept me as I am.

    Outside of EP, no one knows the "real me,

    " and since I want it to stay that way, even my friends here don't get details or even know what I look like. It sounds depressing and it really is that way a lot of the time. On the other hand, it makes my EP friends really special.

    I used to have this one friend

    that was nice in grade 4 and 5. Then he changed he was a complete and udder douchebag just to fit in with his new friend. I felt useless and cheap. All he wanted was credit, it was like those two years together didn't mean anything. And soon enough he made fun of me and my name...
