Feel the gap.
Just can't imagine on how he will integrate himself in that group.
He just don't have the privilege to access the group as the second party has.
Does it comes from the act of overprotective of the second party?
Does the obstacle comes from the third party that naturally have less emotion; the way they express their emotion towards others slightly differ from normal perspective.
Thus, maybe he need to start all over again when the time allows him to do so; learning new things and environment, get to know new peoples.
"HE, please be grateful for what you have, give more and less expecting from others"
Just can't feel the heat. Background music: Aku Yang Asing; though not so related. Haha!
Be grateful, brother!
