I have to admit I have tons of friends. Or rather, acquaintances. The last count of my Facebook friends is 3,000 something and I have met or engaged with about 85% of them online and offline.
But I don’t really have that many bestfriends, i.e. people to whom I share my worries, concerns, sadness, problems. It is true that people will often see the best side of me, but not the vulnerable side of me. In general I don’t like people to worry about me, and thus I choose to not reveal that side of me that is full of insecurities and worries.
Consider yourself lucky if you see that side of me.
