    Hello! I had previously been struggling with social anxiety and gaining acceptance and validation from people and have gotten about 40-50 % better. What I still have problems with are not thinking too much about what others think of me wayy to much and not totally changing my personality. I classify myself as someone who used to be a hypersensitive person who would get offended by the slightest remarks and not know what to do about those feelings. What I have noticed is that people my age (mid-teens) don’t like or gravitate towards this personality type at all, rather, they belittle it; that is why I feel I always have to mask my true identity and personality… Do you think it’s worth it to do this or should I just embrace who I am, as I have a really difficult time getting along with people because of this trait of mine; I never really grew my sense of humor and learned to talk things easily. Is being sensitive a trait of a weak mind? What about qualities like empathy and deep care for others that I almost never get back to the same degree. I can sense every little thing around me to another level and it’s really impacting my social development; I have never bonded with someone who has sensitivity to this degree. Another reason for my social isolation was because I never gave friendship much of an importance in middle school so I was always alone in the corner; when I tried changing myself I went overboard with talkativeness and being TOO outgoing (it was a very drastic personality change) and people ran away from me. They still kind of due because I can’t handle things easily; I take offense to every little thing? re laid-back people generally more likable? Please help me I have gone into depression due to social isolation and not having anyone to confide all of my thoughts with. Everytime I want to fit-in I do a drastic personality change and I don’t know if that’s entirely good. What should I do?
