Truth isn't only about knowledge... it's also about learning to accept your limitations and focus on your strengths. Don't take what society tells you as sacred words set in stone. It may just take a while for the rest of your culture to catch up with you. And that's ok.
"When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor." Psalm 8:3-5
