The Meaning of Life
What is the meaning of life? Is it having tons of friends and being a social butterfly? Is it having a family and someone you love? Is it traveling all over and seeing the world?
As I have said before, I am a homebody and I hate to travel. I have my wife and our son and love to be home with them. I am not much into socializing, going out to dinners or drinks with friends. I don’t really even like to leave my home to go anywhere in the evening. Not due to any anxiety or anything, I just don’t want to. Am I weird?
I have 4 bosses, and all of them are much older than me. Everyone always seems to have dinners or parties or book clubs or presentations to go to. That’s just not for me. I think it is looked down upon in society if you are a homebody like me.
I am only 34, yet I feel like I already did all that partying in my younger years and don’t need it now. Even when I did do it, I didn’t do it a lot.
So why is it that most people my age still want to go out? I don’t really get it. I guess if you are single it is required so you can meet new people.
I feel like an old fuddy duddy when a friend wants to grab drinks or dinner. I never want to go. The only time we go out is if it’s for a work function, and that is only 2 or 3 times a year!
While some people may think of this as me being old, I like to think of it as me being content…..what’s your take on it?
