You have to know my dear that once the Proverbs 22:6 is complete; that, many aren’t worthy your time & energy. That overly associating with them will only lead you away from your truth. You should choose to disassociate.
While reading your writing I wondered, and tried to figure from your words; if, you were an only child growing. I’ve found that many-most times, that when adults are lonely that it’s based on aptitude; school wise, or having siblings/not. Just food for thought.
