It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. – André Gide

You gotta be true to yourself as well as true to others. Being a pretender to be loved, liked and admired by others to perform well in a popularity contest is not the route to go. Some people may not like who you are – this is their problem & not yours. False portrayals will never make you comfortable with yourself… be the real you.
