Yes, so I put my best foot forward-- online, offline, familiar, strangers, blah, blah, blah…
However, I don't control others' perception and they will believe what they want. This has been proven.

Or is it about not giving a damn, being who you are?
As far as this, I've witnessed that people tend to confuse their tactless existences with honesty/being "real"/being bad ass/etc.
One can be thoughtful/respectful/give a damn and still be authentic to self/others. Just sayin.
It presents as defensive, insecure and emotionally exhausting the effort people put into maintaining the facade.
