And I've been thinking about this, how you have to sometimes hide certain parts of yourself in order to connect with people. For a while, I thought that was being phony, being untrue to yourself. But now I've realized that it's not fake or phony, at all. It's just... toning yourself down, lightening your hues instead of completely changing them.
This is probably obvious to a lot of you; this thread just helped me change that debilitating view, so I wanted to share.
"So I say, live and let live. Thatís my motto. Live and let live.
Anyone who canít go along with that, take him outside and shoot the motherfucker."
