I want to know if I should change the way I am. If I’m honest I’m the loner girl who sits in the library and reads a book at lunch/break. The smart person people tend to feel sorry for. I hate people thinking that all I do is read and do “smart” things mainly because I’m not smart. With close friends I’ve known for ages I’m “Normal” but according to my best friend I’m a bit of a “Vixen” so what I want to know is, if I should start being the flirty jokey happy person I am out of school, in school?
Never change who you are for other people. Be happy with who you are and real friends will like YOU for you. However, you said that with your friends that you grew up with you are “normal”, I think wanting to read a book is normal, perhaps not all the kids do it, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t “normal”. You also said with your friends you are a flirty jokey happy person, if this is who you really are with people you feel comfortable with then you should feel comfortable to be like that everywhere and with everyone. Don’t hide who you are of fear of rejection. In life people will like you and some people won’t, this doesn’t mean that you aren’t normal or that you are different, it just means everyone has their own opinion and you don’t need to hang out with people who will judge you anyway. Be you, and you’ll see in the future, being you is GOOD!
