We all wear a mask, but in my case it’s an enormous mask.

Show yourself as you are, meet people like you… that may be good advice for people in the center of the Gaussian bell, but it is a huge challenge for those at both ends.

We’re used to the feeling of isolation, of being too far away from the heat of the tribe’s fire, the awareness of being fundamentally different from those around us. There is only acceptance.

Of course, choosing to have fewer people around is not necessarily negative, it also brings great moments.
