We have so much in common,and just so you know, I know exactly how you feel, and just like you I'm good at acting being fine and perfect. My family does not know how I feel, for I keep on acting fine, I like this website because I can see that I'm not the only one that feels this way and I can express myself without acting and wearing a mask really easily.
