For me i like to go on the internet and watch anime for fun. I like to watch it especially if its funny. I've never been a big people person. Though i do have a large family and a few people i consider good friends. So I'd have to say no on the using it to 'escape from reality' thing or using it to hide my true self. I'm pretty comfortable being myself whatever i may be. =D

Why many can't be true to themselves because they are NOT sure if others will accept them as who we are. People LOVE to judge others based on their actions. Which is why so many play a role rather than be themselves. Yes, it is sad, but if that is the only way they FEEL they can be accepted on this messed up earth, then so be it. It is up to others to accept them as their fake self or their true self OR see pass their fake self and see their real self but still be able to accept them.

Anime (+ video games) helped me from being my true self. My true self is the equivelant of a serial killer.

I'm not afriad that I'm afraid to be my true self.

So far all I know is that I'm: A not so pretty, poor, not so smart white girl that likes to read, watch anime, read manga, and play RPGs. I am also a bisexual girl who's nearing her sixteenth birthday single as I have not ever had a bf and and I'm a nerd that is clinicaly depressed.

Not such a great thing to be.

I don't understand the question. I mean I do when it's just, "Why are some people afraid to be their true self?" But not when you add, "Are you using anime as a cover?" into the mix. Because I don't understand how anyone could use a TV show as a cover to hide their true selves. It's not exactly the best façade.

Some people are afraid of being judged, have low self-esteem, have no one to trust, etc etc.

In my ideology, I think everyone hides their true selves. Not to quote Shrek or something but people are like onions. No seriously. There's that first layer that everyone gets to see. Then the layers that fewer and fewer people get to witness, depending. Then there's that last layer that I think no one shows to anyone. That's that layer that everyone keeps to themselves, even me. People don't tell their friends and family everything after all. Too dark.

Or maybe people put up walls around their true selves, not to keep people out but to find out who's willing to break them down.

That, or people who hide their true selves know that their true selves are complete assholes. Or just plain boring.

On the computer people get more confidence then they do in real life.

Because i guess on the computer it doesn't show their flaws. ?

I dunno. Watch Shugo Chara. XD

Maybe it's because they are afraid what people might think. Yes, it's good - at times. Doesn't mean people see you as a "softie" you'll stop helping people. When you start receiving orders that is inhumane or of the sort, then you have to stop. Think what other people will think of you and mostly, what it will affect you and others.
