When I hang out with my conservative friends I put on the can'tstump.trump mask and play along with them but I try to take it too far to see if they'll agree and if they do I usually withdraw from the conversation. Like I've got to keep up the mask to protect my reputation but I've taken it too far and might have created something bad. Ill then withdraw myself from the world and go for walks in nature hoping it will purge the emotions that have come from shame.
