Squad goals? Who needs them? Much as I have longed to be part of a cool clique, it would never suit me

I’m going out on a limb here — but if being a doctor taught me anything about the human condition it’s that people mostly have the same anxieties as each other but they go through life believing themselves to be alone in feeling the way they do — and I admit I always felt a little bit like I was on the outside looking in.

I always wanted to be part of a big, happy gang but never fully felt I was. Side note: the total upside of aging is that these worries we carry all the way from childhood and adolescence get put to bed as you get older and it is a f**king joy. Yes, I took a certain pride in my ability to walk my own line even as a teen. Yes, there is a certain satisfaction in being a bit different and not always running with the crowd.
