I am at the same place in my mind. I have been for a couple of years now. I think the older you get, the less you tolerate from others. And yes, people do put us off, and sometimes we don’t know why. Oft times we don’t want to push ourselves to socialize if we don’t feel like it. No fake niceties here.
Having said that.
In the past year, some friends have taken pictures of me, without me knowing. And what they have captured — I wish to goodness was not true. But it is. I have Resting Bitch Face. I am not happy about it.
