Was the last decade really that awful?

Everyone is talking about how horrible the last decade was, and I just don't feel that way. Even with the recession.

I guess, but I guess it makes me feel like even more of the iconoclast that I am chilling in DR for the next 19 days, having not been gainfully employed since April of 2008, and everyone else is looking at me crossed eyed for taking my fourth trip of the year. I guess I shouldn't be so concerned about the choices other people have made for their lives and not be ashamed that I am happy with my own.

Well I think you understand how it is to go against the grain, and then everyone is mad at you because you are doing OK with that.
I just knew I didn't want any burdens in my life anymore, and I wanted to make money not an option anymore, and I did just that, why is everyone mad at me?

Like my brother "chose" to have seven kids I didn't. His sister chose to take care of 3 of them. I choose to travel and I am doing just that. People need to be happy with the carpet in their apartment and not cover other people's floor coverings

You got it, they don't know how to do what you did and they think you are breaking teh rules by doing it and being happy. Problem is those are thier rules not yours and the alternative is play by thier rules to make them happy but be unhappy yourself, or play by your rules make you happy and let them figure it out for themselves...

This is why we get along
Just because I learn from all the stupid lessons on TV and do things that make me happy, people shouldn't hate, they should appreciate

I think we have to be responsible for our own happiness. We really can't be responsible for other peoples. But for some reason we are taught that we need to be or else we are being selfish. I just don't agree with that methodology.
