Many people hide their true identity and show the world a personality so different from the original one. which party do you want to be, loved by pretending, or hated for being true to self?....

What is my true identity? It;s not as if there are 2 clear cut one: world vs me. You act differently to every person you meet. Yes, I put on a facade. I don't try to be anyone, but you can't say that there is a true self.

agree with u 100%. but when im sad like when i feel like crying i somtimes act happy cuz when people see me sad and stuff they ask whats wrong it just makes me cry more. so the only tim ei pretend 2 b happy is when im really really sad and just want 2 4get everything.

if you think about, no one really knows anyone. there is no person that knows how you are when theyre not with you..does that make sense? i live by love me or hate me, i wont work hard to change how you feel.

Pretending something that's not me is quite hard to do for me. Besides if I'm true to being who I am and people hate me because of that, then I'd see and understand which people I'd avoid associating with. No point in trying to be accepted by everyone.

i agree with u. i personally think that people don't act the same when they are with different persons.....

i act different with my parents....i don't show them the me that my friends sees.
and my friends don't see how i act towards my boyfriend/lover.
i also act different to my superiors.... and to strangers....

showing the real u is harder than u think...when sumtyms people get confused and don't even know who they are.
all the aspects u show to people when mixed together is probably the real YOU.

Err... happy or sad... I have the same expression on my face day in and day out with a low profile.

I couldn't careless what people think. Plus, most of 'em can't even tell what I am thinking most of the time, anyhow.

I don't really have the need to pretend.

Damn straight that personality changes due to environment. For a crude physical example, If some kid is the big boy at home and picks on his youngers (yes i made this up), he'll realize quick enough that their are bigger kids at school.

That said I act like a BAMF all the time. Just kidding.

That aside, the question is pretty silly, but ill give a rough answer anyway. One problem is that you assume that one is stuck with one or the other in all situations. Well, in general I would prefer to be loved for being something that im not in social situations, I can always be mroe true to myself, so to speak, when by myself with limited amount of people. Who wants to be hated? But of course limits to this, what would i have to do to be loved?

hated. it's probably my perverseness but i love it when people hate me.

on another note, i think the human personality is very complex. for example, i always have to fight my childish, irrational side. anyways, what i am saying is that i don't think there is really only one side to anyone's personality.

also, i don't think we humans keep things from others b/c we want to be loved (at least not always). in fact, i'd have to say we pretend to be other people b/c we're insecure or b/c we don't want our loved ones to worry about us.

ex: a few weeks ago i was really stressed out from work. my mom asked me how work was going and i told her it was fine. why? b/c i didn't want her to worry. my mom's a huge worrywort.

---

anyways, i agree w/ the people above. my personality is different depending on who i am with b/c they make me feel differently therefore i respond/act differently. ex: i'm different w/ my parents, friends, and BF.

it doesnt work cutting it that way. you have to cut the long way.

the worlds a stage, and its people merely actors. only you yourself know how you really are and even though you may think you arent pretending..most of the time you really are. thats what i think.
