Here's the thing about being a loner... you eventually figure out you are not like other people. You realize you say the wrong things, embarrass your loved ones, and sometimes even make them a little mad.
You notice that nobody wants to take you anywhere with them because you say inappropriate things, and that's OK, since you would just as soon be at home anyhow. You avoid people even more, because obviously you must be some sort of village idiot.
Even when you resolve to shut your mouth and not say the wrong things, somehow those wrong things pop out and people roll their eyes and excuse themselves.
And you withdraw even more.
There are those who accept me as I am, my husband being at the top of the list. He probably comes closer to understanding me than anyone else ever has. I don't expect anyone to make allowances for me, I only ask that you let me be myself, and I will try not to embarrass you.
