Did those experiences add to your perceptions and view of this world, of the types of people around you?
I learned that there is a lot of truth to the old cliché "wherever you go, there you are." Wherever my travels have taken me, I have always come back to the realization that although I am biologically a member of the human race, psychologically I am an alien. There is no home for someone like me, no "true" role. I am incapable of believing in or emotionally investing in any of it.
The upside of being on the outside of things is the enhanced vision it brings. I see things with greater clarity. Notice I don't say perfect clarity. There is no such thing.
