I think our complains are somewhat tied together. We should be friends!

^What he probably meant by that was, people who are fakes; conforming simply because they just want to be cool or to fit in. Conformity does exist, but to a degree, as we're all individuals in our own right.

However, not being yourself simply because you fear being rejected by society (or in a much smaller sense, your peers IE friends) is far from necessary. Sure changing yourself depending on a given situation is fine, but not showing the real you from time to time, or just not at all is pathetic.

Simply put: Be yourself, rejection and acceptance is a part of life. Get over it.

Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

But how do you even know what's the real you? If you get angry when someone says something, but would normally keep it inside, is the real you the one who doesn't say anything or the one who gets pissed off and says hateful things in response? What if you'd like to talk to some person, but don't because you're too shy? Is the real you the one who would like to have a long nice conversation or the one that is afraid of talking to people?

The "real you" concept is mostly bollocks, in my opinion. People are capable of controlling the way they behave, so however you choose to behave yourself, isn't that still the real you? Or are you real to yourself only when you allow yourself to do whatever you please?

Maybe you can think of it along the lines of authentic self and social self. Your authentic self is what you really want to do, what your heart desires. Your social self does what is expected of you and what others think you should do. Feeling anger would be an authentic feeling, not saying anything would be your social self. You should work toward being more authentic. Not being rude or mean to people but figuring out what you really want in life and what path you want to take.

I can be mean if I want, but I know it doesn't benefit me either.

Other people can be mean if they want, but they need to understand why being nice will benefit them before they try to act like it.

Oh, there are ways you can be mean and still benefit from it.  As Pat said, you just gotta know how to play the game.

It is almost 7 o'clock. After two more pushed back deadlines and nearly an hour of delays, I stumble upon this:

The Valve Team Usergroup.

What game is are they playing?
