I think I understand your question.
I’ve grown up in places where being as I am has been seen as an act of defiance against society. It wasn’t and isn’t. I suppose eccentrism is subjective. What appears as normal to you isn’t what is thought of me at home. I guess it’s all about cultural context.
And I distance myself from people because I prefer my own company most of the time. As you may or may not know, I was bullied for a majority of my primary school life and some of my high school life too. I was usually forced to be on my own because not a lot of people wanted to be friends with the victim. As I grew older, I realised I find solace in the distance I put between myself and other people. That has yet to change.
But as far as being weird goes, it still amazes me that what’s been labeled as weird in one society is actually normal in another part of the world. I guess all I can say is thank you for reminding me of that.
I don’t know if I’m answering your question right, or just babbling do let me know.
