i'm glad i'm not the only one who feels this way. never considered isolation itself as a cause, but it makes a lotta sense when i think about it. personally, i'm autistic, and it always takes me a minute to fully process things—especially in social situations. i've also been homeschooled my whole life, and haven't had many real-life friends. as a result, i can't really call myself streetwise. LOL
but in any case, i don't think calling yourself dumb is fair to yourself. you're trying your best, and i believe that's what separates an actual dumb person from a person who's just having a really difficult time, y'know?
"Y'know, sometimes, a story's just a story. You try to read into every little thing, and find meaning in everything anyone says, you'll just drive yourself crazy. And then not only that, but... you'll likely end up believing something you shouldn't believe, thinking something you shouldn't think, or assuming something you shouldn't assume."
