    I’m all the way to the left on that diagram. Not a smidgen of nostalgia or pride.

    As an expatriate of Flint, Michigan this makes a lot of sense to me. To complicate things, add a few more circles and intersections:
    1. People who hated the place while they were there but have grown to love it once they’re gone.
    2. People who criticize they place they left around locals, but defend it around outsiders.
    3. People who wonder why their life isn’t better after leaving.
    4. People who regret not leaving.

    When first I saw this, I thought yes, exactly. But then I thought of the folks I know who stayed not just in the region where I grew up, but the week town itself. Many of them, many, do not have that defensiveness. They chose to stay, or perhaps had the decision thrust on them by outside forces, but where I am from, against the backdrop of a particular dominant religious sect, you make due, you make your peace, you get up and live your life.

    So while I agree in principle, in experience I see another possibility for those who stayed: acceptance.
