    I’ve recently reached the same conclusion! It’s quite liberating, and I now find it easier to make friends and be closer to people because I’m being more authentic, and less forgettably normal

    I couldn’t agree more. I’ve lived in the same town I was born in for 61 years. I worked as a nurse’s aid and after 30 years of service, I finally figured out that even though I ended up as hospital supervisor, the people I thought were friends shun me because I divorced a controlling, abusive husband who was more popular than me. I’m sure he told them I had an affair but the point is I did not and not ONE person ever asked my side of the situation. I am retired now and stay mostly isolated, except for my husband of 37 years and my adult son. Nothing matters to anyone but gossip and financial success. I don’t want or need “friends” like that. I am judged for an event that occurred over 40 years ago. Social interaction is a joke. I prefer honesty. I really enjoyed and related to your article. Keep up the good work!

    Awesome article, I agree completely. Social interaction IS absurd and arbitrary, so why not just ignore the “rules” I’m afraid of breaking? I should just free myself from social inhibitions and speak my mind honestly, as long as I’m not being irritating or a jerk about it, and I’ll save myself a lot of unneeded stress.
