Maybe some people are afraid to be true to their selves due to some people who are very judgemental or the like.

I don't watch anime to escape reality, I watch it so that I have something to enjoy and do when I have nothing better to do.

Besides, trying to escape reality is nothing but a waste of time ( at least for me) because no matter how hard you try to escape, the truth is just still but the truth.

For those who try to escape reality though, I believe they have a reason as to why. Maybe they're having a hard time on life, or they just got through some very grieving sufferings or such.

because almost all people don't know their real self... there has to be something in it which is not good or let us say their true colors. we are afraid to show people our true self which leads us to further lying and committing mistakes... we can't just show others our other side.. we must show them our brighter side...

The old me used to pretend that I am this and that just to leave good impression on people. But I have been disappointed one too many times that i decided that enough or enough. If people didn't like he real me and the way i am, then they could go and fuck their mother, it's torture to live a lie. Now, i am happy that I can be the way i want and seems like nobody is prejudiced. So, i am happy.

Some people are afraid to be themselves because they are scares that they think are not good enough with the people around them.

hmm..i watch animes because they're so awesome!! well 'bout that..some people are trying to act like cool simply because they want to be somebody and as you have said,they don't want to be left out..others are afraid to be judged or simply because they lack confidence..but they should realize that being themselves is the best thing they can have..me? i don't care what other people say about me,i'm me and there's nothing they can do with it..

people are not "afraid" of their true selves, people simply dislike parts of their personality. you're wrong in assuming that a person's identity is so simple that you can categorize it in such a stupid and ridiculous way. there really isn't one true self in anybody's identity. people are multi-faceted.

i think some people in CRunchy(ex.) make use of this site to cover their true selves....
they make them selves look cool and talk about everythin there is to talk about....
some even make use of it to make friends..thats not bad..others even created their CR family....

i sometimes think they are like that cause maybe they are afraid to be left out....
they experienced a lot of sadness in there life.....
they made mistakes and they are afraid to be wrong again...
they lack love and seeks it......
even having problems that they cant seem to find the solution....

we know that a lot of us made mistakes in our early years.....but its not right to run away from reality...
or making an excuse to not face the problem....

i know its hard to change but you have ur love ones who are always there by yourside, every one deserves a second chance..to show who they really are and to prove that they exsist...



My immediate question is: what is the true self? Doesn't everything we do reflect part of who we are, even if we say we're being fake?

Next question: why is it not fine to run away from reality? If it gets you through life happily, what's so bad? And, somewhat related to the "true self" question, who decides what reality is?

Lastly, not everyone has "loved ones," and those who do don't necessarily have the kind who support them.

We have different ways of dealing with life, and we are all, to some extent, regulating ourselves (not being, as you might put it, our "true selves") because we live in a civilization with rules.
