I agree that Gregory’s transformation highlights his isolation and alienation before his metamorphosis because is how he felt with the high responsibility he had on his shoulder of being the person who had to support the entire family, without having a personal or social life. Having a hard worker life with a job that was exhausting waking up every day very early in the morning , with those exhausted train trips. He also had to endure the mistreatment of his boss by telling him that ultimately, he was not doing very well. He barely was eating well, and more just to support his family.
Gregory did not have that confidence that if one day he could not do it, he would feel released that someone in his family would tap his shoulder by telling him now rest you have been doing too much. He was doing more like a father of a family than a simple son. The story reflects that he felt as an insect and that was exactly happened after his transformation everyone got good jobs, instead of everyone having worked and helping each other as a true family, he became the insect that brought money home with his work, thus dying the love for a family member.
