This is a really good point.

First of all, thank YOU for reading, highlighting and commenting. It means so much to me.

Secondly, wow you summed up really well what I meant. This almost secret social situation where you need to adjust/modify your personality for a stranger or a co-worker. It’s kind of exhausting, to think so much of how one might perceive you… and yet have that person already make their mind about you… hence: “I can’t be *myself*”. Whatever I choose to portray might be taken the wrong way.

Thank you!
