I grew up in a household where my adults were right simply by being adults, and if I spoke my mind and my parents disagreed with me, I got in trouble for questioning such wisdom. : / Naturally, in effect, I'm extremely outspoken now. I don't think I'm necessarily rude, but I certainly don't censor myself, and I've met a lot of people who dislike me for it. I think being honest, opinionated, and an independent thinker is worth being alone sometimes. Like you said, "I may not have as many friends as you." Independent thinkers, imo, have friends just not a lot of friends, but that tends to be because independent thinkers like to surround themselves w/ other independent thinkers, which are scarce nowadays.
