It’s true, and kind of an irony… when we try to “fit in” by becoming what others want us to be, our true self is not affirmed at all because it is hidden, buried, placed in a safe vault, and in the end we are isolated, alienated, and ultimately alone.

I think here of “the lonely crowd.” Good insights.
