How's that working for you? I don't mind being liked by few. I would rather be appreciated by a few for who I really am than appreciated by many for the mask I wear.
I don't wear a mask. I am honest about who I am. But like everyone, my mood changes. Sometimes I am really pleasant to be around, other times I am really not. It works for me because it can't not work for me. If people don't appreciate me, that's fine and they don't have to be around me. You can't please everyone and I don't bother trying. I rarely seek people out, so when I am around others it's because they want me to be there.
