    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Only a few know what kind of a person I truly

    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...
