b'Noticed37As far as physical proximity, my community lacks genuine personal relationships. Cliques are created and then maintained for generations. It feels like everyone is scared to display their real personalities to develop genuine relationships that would better benefit their mental health, instead of the cliques theyve known their entire life. I feel that community could be fostered better by taking the first step and letting down the facade that we uphold out of fear.Mercer, 17'
