When I was growing up I came to realize I was two things, an introvert, and a pessimist. Neither of these things are culturally valued. Some still believe that introversion and pessimism are inherently wrong and must be remedied. Meanwhile, introverts continued to mind their own business (wishing everyone else would mind theirs) and the pessimists held the opinion that people will never change.
Thankfully, the internet is making it easier for us to fight back.
