Never Change

I do not know about you but I have had enough of living up to everyones elses expectations of me. I just want to be who I am, I am done hiding it and pretending to make my family happy. Who feels the same, who hides who they really are. That is what this story is about, hiding who we are.

People always feel we have to be what THEY want us to be. Some of us are afraid to show who we really are so we cover up and be someone else. We stand alone among a crowd. We are fighting silently, fighting whether to be who we are or who everyone wants us to be. When is it our time to no longer hide, when is it our time to show the world who we really are?

Many people you know, they are not who you think they are. Lots of them probably have hidden talents but do not want to show them. **** some people are afraid to show that they are gay or trans or bi or whatever. Why? Because people expect us to be someone who we are not.

How many of you feel like you would be a shame to everyone if you be yourself? How many times have you tried to shine and be pushed back into the dark?  I have had enough of being pushed aside, have you? Each time we have to pretend to smile and be happy when we are crying on the inside. I have read stories on here of  how some families push their children to be someone they do not want to be. Like my family, they want me to be happy and forget the past. Like it is that easy. We should not have to hide who we really are.

Each person is unique in their own way. Do  not be afraid  to be who. We all have secrets of our own, things we want kept in the dark. Some secrets we have told some people but no many. We should never be ashamed of who you are. You should not let your genes determine what you do or how you live your life.  

Is there anyone who agrees with me? That we let everyone else define who we are and what we do. Our true selves are hidden and the pretends are what we let others see. Most who talk to me when I am happy think oh she has it good. They are wrong, I was abused all my life, even now in some ways. When you speak to many people you see them as happy but they are hurting. The smile is a mask, a lie.

Do you hide who you really are, have you built a wall around your heart and emotions? Hiding even from yourself? I think you should not be afraid, you should show your true being. Show who you are, believe in yourself, never stop being you. We are who we are, we are our own person. No one should say who we can and cannot be. No one should tell us not to be ourselves.

I believe that we should never have to be ashamed of who we are, or anyone should be disgusted or embarrassed of who we are. We are who we are. You are all unique, all of you have a life of your own. I think you should not hide who you really are because really you are yourself. No one should change because others wishes, just be yourself and nothing else nothing less. You are amazing, you are you.

It takes a great amount of courage to say this, I have always appreciated the internet. It allows people like us to reveal our true selves and crimson it is people like you that make the internet a great place to visit.

this storie made me crie, I'm hiding myself either. I'm afraid of the reactions of other people, no, I'm afraid of the reactions of my closest friends on school. But deep in my heart, I know they would accept, it will take time, but people will, and have to accept once! I totally agree with you!


majority of what you said i can relate. but i am trapped hiding forever.

Love it!
