"A lot of us in school attached ourselves to a popular kid who made fun
of us publicly. There’s a strange validation in being ridiculed by the
right people. Sure it hurts, but at least it confirms to everyone that
you belong in the tribe, albeit peripherally."
An interesting meditation on "unbelonging".
