I am so so sorry that people have misunderstood you and pushed rigid, unfair expectations onto you in such a way that it hindered you above and beyond the barriers you were already facing. It’s so fundamentally unjust and sad that this happens, and I am glad this piece brought you some validation and reassurance. I wish the world was far more compassionate and flexible and did not define people by their output.
