People don’t change unless they have a reason to. And sometimes it takes something traumatic or the fear of loss to induce that type of change. People don’t always change because they want to, they change because they have to.
Unfortunately, you can’t share your entire self with everyone. Some people can only handle you in pieces. Their insecurities won’t allow them to appreciate the rest, only the parts that make them comfortable with who they are.
Sometimes in life, you have to stop and just laugh. I mean out of control, knee slapping laugh. Life is serious, but life is fun too. You have to be out of control happy for whatever reason that’s happening right then.
