I personally believe that you are your best friend.  Love and understanding yourself can make you motivated and enthusiastic. Don’t depend on others for mental support. You are strong enough to support yourself. 

No need to confess and clarify yourself to others. Always remember that everyone has an individual identity and choice. It is not necessary to fit for each other.
