“I am afraid that if I act like myself around other people they won’t like me or they will think I’m crazy, how can I stop feeling like this?”

What would happen if you started valuing your own opinion of you over other people’s opinions of you?

Because it seems like you’re saying that it’s more important to be liked than it is to be who you are.

Obviously, it’s cool to be liked. Who doesn’t want be liked? But there’s a difference between wanting to be liked and it being more important than being you.

If you act like yourself, there will be people who love you. And people who like you. And people who won’t like you. And people who will think you’re crazy.

If you put on a fake persona, there will be people who love you. And people who like you. And people who won’t like you. And people who will think you’re crazy.

Which option do you prefer?
