Chosen to not be myself

It’s less painful this way
I want people to care about me and love me

Even if its fake because im sure it will be less painful than what im feeling right now

It hurts too much
I can’t do it anymore

Hi @Amaris

I’m here to check up on you. I’m hoping that you’ve been yourself. Are things going any better for you this month? Do you need to let more off your chest?

Amaris, It’s been a while since you posted, and I just wanted to check and see how you are doing my friend. I want you to know that I’m thinking about you and that you matter. You truly matter and you are loved.



hey amaris, I hope you’re travelling okay. It’s been a little while since your last post, and while it can feel like the world would accept us if we just hide ourselves away, it would miss out on the very uniqueness you bring to it. Thinking of you

hey amaris, just checking in on you friend! Just wanting to let you know that you’re loved and you can always be yourself here. I know it’s hard to feel like you have to hide your true self away. It’s hard to have so much pain that it feels like you’re forced to conceal yourself to protect yourself. You matter immensely and I hope that even if for now you’re still hurting, that you know you have our full love and support x

Hey @Amaris, good to see you!

I get you when you say it’s less painful this way. For a long time I lived like this and masked who I truly felt like I was. This taught me a lot, though. Loneliness causes us to reach out in ways that aren’t genuine to who we truly are inside.

Something I learned during my 30 laps around the sun is that the first and best thing you can do to start feeling less lonely is to learn to love yourself.

A major part of loving yourself is to be the best most authentic version of yourself you can muster on any given day…
