Seriously, the only way to be happy in this life is to be yourself, your real self. When you felt that nobody cared, if they care now, you know that feels hollow because it's not the real you they're caring about.
Turn your attention within, is my suggestion, and figure out what areas you can explore that will bring you attention by way of your talent and style. If you start doing something that you really love, then the people who also love those things will gravitate to you.
The key is to figure out what you dig, pursue it, and like-minded ppl will become acquaintances and possibly friends. Do you like Death Metal? get involved in forums about it, attend showings even when they're far away. Do you like . [fill in the blank]. If you 'don't like anything', then you're in a slump and could benefit from therapy if you hop around and find the perfect therapist for you.
Oh, I will add that the whole 'points our changes to her point of view' is in a bemused manner with just a tinge of mock. It works.
This can be turned benevolent with a goodwill-based approach -- I only know because my older daughter's guy let's her 'be the one who's right' and points out changes to her point of view she finds it hard to deny. So, he creates the situation where she can bend, adapt, accept input.
But if acrimony is too vested, you could possibly still benefit from good therapy, whether couples counseling or start out with your own, the function of which is to assess new options for approach to the relationship.
