I'm Tired of Being Who They Want Me to Be

I seem to be rather good at surrounding myself with people who would rather I alter myself to please them than accept me as I am. It's not exactly rare that people do this but it seems that that is all I ever find. I feel torn between what i feel is me and what they feel should be me. It's lonely, depressing and exhausting and on top of that I worry about the image I am setting for my children. It was a bad enough example having two beautiful children so young (although I would never ever take it back...they are my life)but now I have to worry about the images they will project themselves as the get older....I wish I could make people understand me. what's wrong with just being me?
