so like what the hel is it wrong that i give up who i am just to please people i don't even really know? I mean like some times i have to hide the fact that i am gay or act like i am straight just to hangout with some of my friends. I even have to change how i dress,talk,and act with some of them i mean does someone have to go through all of these just to fit in with people. And if i get upset and can't find someone to vent to is it wrong to burn myself cause man if it is then i need help. but what can i do when there is no one for me to talk about my "issues" you know. so tell me the truth man am i crazy for pretending to be who i am not

If you're crazy then most of

If you're crazy then most of us on here are crazy. This may be taking it a little far though. You could try filtering yourself less, gradually. Good luck!

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

Darling, you're not crazy, yo

Darling, you're not crazy, you're human, and you're caught up in our crazy human society trap that we've built for ourselves. Read Kate Bornstein's books.

Umm...

You keep saying you "have to" do these things.

Why? Who said you have to?
