Standard
I used to dislike social functions to the point that I considered myself a sincere misanthrope. What I didn’t realize was that I hated to shield myself, the hard and unpleasant act of acting without acknowledging it. Now that I feel freer to let myself alone and others to like or dislike me as they choose, I have lost much of this aversion.” – Hugh Prather
