I also have been in the Leon position mostly . Always at the outskirts of any group, even misfit groups who form as foil to cool kids I was always just passing through like an alien observer. There is an upside though, because in-group social pressures only really work if you are "in" or at least aspire to that.

the deviant loner weird kids who eat lunch by themselves, will inherit the earth? at least, I can hope. ;)

You can hope. I don't want to inherit anything. I just to make space where I can feed myself and be left alone. I feel for you but don't find hope helpful. Especially world sized hope. I once did and it nearly destroyed me so many times that I aim for more modest attainments. Imagining? Essential. Hope though, is like playing russian roulette with my own mind. If it helps you though, I don't begrudge others having hope.
