Mental Health is a journey of learning to understand yourself, thoughts, and emotions. I feel that this is a journey that is best taken with support.

That's very sad that people assume that you are rude, arrogant, stubborn and everything you are not :( They say we should support and love each other for who they are, but that's not what they show. It's not a crime to be quiet and shy. Maybe you are shy and quiet because of the environment you grew up since you said you are an only child. Or there's not a reason for that. There are so many different personalities among us and others can't say that being shy and quiet is being arrogant. That's not fair at all. Believe me, you are not wrong at this :3

Being honest is not a bad thing being arrogant is a different thing altogether. Perhaps you want to search for ways to express your honesty in ways that other people can be comfortable with and you will feel more accepted.

Not everyone are the same. There are a lot of people that prefer honesty and openness. If you think people hate you, it is only a presumption. How do you know people say you are arrogant, stubborn or always angry? How much of it is true?

A lot of people mistake being shy and quiet for being cold and arrogant. I was an only child and a very quiet kid as well and I didn't have many friend until I moved out and far away from home. Only recently I heard that many people always thought I was kind of weird and arrogant. I personally was just too shy and didn't have many people my age around me, so I never felt as if anyone took me serious. I isolated myself and it got increasingly more difficult for me to socialise. A way to break out of this is to stop isolating yourself. Or, if it's too late for that, taking the plunge and finding a different group of people might be a solution.
