The true portrait of humanity is varied and complex and made even more so by the myopic filtering that personal experience brings each one of us. In order to gain true perspective you almost have to scrub your mind of personal bias which cannot be truly accomplished because it forms part of your lived experience. Ideally we would learn while being able to park the biases that sneak into our belief system.
Turns out I am not nearly as odd as I used to think myself to be or as exceptional and there is always someone out there who is virtually your twin in terms of lived experience.
Understanding that not all is as it seems it actually quite empowering especially for someone who grew up with such a black and white picture of how things were supposed to be.
Therefore with this knowledge in tow cut yourself some slack and live accordingly.
