I appreciated your honesty and making yourself vulnerable here. You sound like the kind of person I would choose for a friend. Perhaps I’m a bit more sociable by nature, but I also appreciate solitude and never did fit into anyone’s mold. I’m glad you had the support of your family in letting you choose to be yourself instead of pressuring you to live a life you would have hated.
