I agree especially with 5 !

Tottaly agreed

This is so true.

It's good to be reminded of this stuff. 

The thing is, it can be hard to fully be yourself in certain situations, especially if you feel you have an unpopular opinion. It is for me, anyway. I don't mean to be 'fake' by any stretch of the imagination.if anything, I'm usually almost always polite and nice. Idk
