Who are you not afraid to be yourself with?
- Typically, I prefer to be myself around anyone and everyone; I find that to be more healthy and more real. At times it takes me having to get to know someone and their boundaries, and what they are comfortable with before exposing all myself to someone (metaphorically speaking) — and I have learned to adapt to my environment and circumstances; which doesn’t mean I am hiding who I am but I am choosing to withhold certain aspects of myself until I feel comfortable otherwise. Sometimes we tend to get too pushy and expect everyone to accept our behaviors and lifestyles equally and get offended by anyone who doesn’t agree — while I always hope people enjoy my company, I don’t expect everyone to like me, so I will always be myself but I won’t shove myself down someones throat to make a point either. As you grow, you learn to choose your battles and who to give two craps about and who not to.
