I am fine as long as I don't have to meet people different than me.

I quit my job two years ago to become a freelancer and part-time traveller. I have travelled to more than 15 countries by myself in the past year and have the best fun ever, and intend to continue doing so.

I must say my life sucked before I made this change. I had some good friends, but every day was the same, job was not satisfying, pay was poor, and my bosses were awful. Then I suffered from an illness due to all this stress and it took me more than a year to recover.

But now I am fine. I know what I can and can not do. And not many people can understand my lifestyle, including my friends. That's why I have lost touch with many of them over the years. I must say I have not missed my friends or acquaintances at all. It's like, I am more than happy to become no longer associated with the past 20 years of my life, because I have never felt truly at peace or happy with them.

But what pained me is that once in a while I did have to deal with them or socialise with these strangers, and had to pretend I have fun. Last night I had to celebrate someone's birthday with all these middle-class people who assume I am rich because I am going to Europe for three months (heard of couch surfing, people?)

Anyway, I told my friend not to go to an expensive restaurant but against my wish, we did. I ended up having to pay like 80 euros for the meal. What a nasty surprise, when my one-way ticket to Russia is less than 190 euros (incl tax)!

It's one of these moments that made me realise I don't like or need casual friends at home. They've done nothing for me intellectually and I'd rather be alone than having shallow discussions with those who cannot identify with me. What's worse is I have to pay a fortune for this. completely outrageous! It's just the most stupid thing that happened to me.

Maybe you think my life sucks, but hey who needs friends when you can just do your own thing unperturbed?

that all makes clear sense to me. It sucks having"friends" that think they know who u truly are but really truly dont have a clue. i am 29 and do not have one single friend. well my only friend is my boyfriend of seven years. i dont know bout u but i was sick of being judged by my "friends" not saying u were being judged. that sucks that u had to pay that money. did u pay for everyone or just u?

thanks for your reply =)
yes, the paying part sucks. not my least now now :)

everyone has to pay 80 euros except the birthday girl..

I just told my friend not to drop this kind of bomb on me again, but I think I will avoid going out with them now, coz I should not trust him!

if yo have one true friend, it's enough. it doesn't matter if you hang out with a crowd when you can't even talk to them. that's why I hate clubbing/social occasions where you have to make small talk. it's worse than killing time on facebook, I think.
