No friendship that truly is right for you should demand your silence or for you to be uncomfortable to be who you really are.
I spent years in friendships where I struggled to be my true self. I worried the real me would not be cool enough or accepted, I lived for approval. I morphed into characters that I felt would be more accepted and spent years having conversations about and doing things that didn’t mean **it.
Those were the worst and most wasted years of my life.
I also want to add that this doesn’t make those former friends bad people, they just were not the right people for me. One of the biggest lessons we can learn is that we are not for everybody and everybody isn’t going to be for us. Go where people get you and trust your instincts.
Even if it’s just one person, that’s better than a friendship with 10 where you can’t even be yourself. I now have the least friends ive ever had in my life, but I’m also the happiest I’ve ever been too. ????. Go figure lol @natashakbenjamin ????
