That's why when you first meet someone you should always be completely yourself. Don't pretend you do or don't like things to make them like you. If it's true love they will love you just as you are. And you can be comfortable being yourself.
Then, Life is too expensive as it only instills pain, grief, regret and fear of losing others and of losing one's own life despite the negativity it inflicts. Someone once said, The only thing better than life is no life at all... That person was Buddha. I am not saying life is bad, but it does teach much negativity, so as I learn to not fear my own death as much since it is inevitable no matter how I feel about it. I have experienced and continue to experience Life, but look to peace after.
