Why is "not wanting to be alone" a feeling that is socially accepted but "wanting to be alone" is something society as a whole has to fight to death? I'm honest: I care for myself more than I care for other people. Does this make me an asshole? Maybe... I'm fine with this (I guess).
I have a few days off due to this Easter stuff. So my first reaction was to think "Yey, gaming nonstop!". But no this is not what has been planned for me. The first free hours opened up with an argument with my girl friend about inviting my parents over. I explained to her that I just lack the social skills to assess whether it may be necessary to invite them. She went like "If you don't want to, neither do I!". That left me with a feeling of having hurt the feelings of my parents equally to hers. Great...
Now it took me like ~30 hours to muster the courage to just go on with my orignal plan and fire up BG2. I can't really focus on the game though as I'm feeling like a slacker for not "functioning" like expected. It doesn't help that she taunts me for "playing games" when she does the house work. It's not that I do nothing around here. I do my few minor tasks apart from serving as our main source of income (did I mention that I usually work around 10-12 hours a day?). It's just that I wish I could have a few days of sacrificing socially accepted norms to just enjoy life a little with games and movies and stuff. But no she has to call me "lazy". I don't feel lazy. This really hurts. itti:
Now I'm really pissed, and it's your girlfriends fault! What the hell is "norm" and "expected"!? I am painfully alone and I moan about it all the time in here, and as much as I would love someone to share my life with, even I have my limitations. If I'm with a girl and she tells me I need to start acting normal she better be refering to BREATHING. And what the hell does "socially accepted" mean!? In certain parts of the world beating and raping your girlfriend/wife is considered socially accepted!
Next time you see her and she tells you to start acting normal and socially acceptable tell her to normally and socially acceptably kiss your ass!
AND YOU ARE NOT LAZY! My uncle hasn't worked 12 hours in 78 goddamn years, HE'S LAZY! Tell her to hang around with that gelatenous piece of shit for ten mintues and she'll see how lazy you are!
