    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.

    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...
