That may sound like a really blunt statement to you, but I don’t care because it’s true. Sometime it’s just not worth beating around the bush.
When you travel the road less travelled, everyone who is not on that road is going to consider you anything from a mild annoyance to a scourge on society. Of course they are more than a bit jealous that they aren’t on that road too, but unlike you they don’t think they have a choice in life, and so they resent you for not contributing.
To the vast majority of people, life is a very linear path, with predefined goals. It goes something like this:
First, you are born. You spend the first few months doing a lot of crying and pooping. This is understandable because anyone being fed a steady diet of mashed carrots would do a lot of crying and pooping. Over the years the amount of crying an pooping you do gradually declines, learning to talk is cutting into your crying time, and you don’t eat so many mashed carrots anymore so pooping is less of a priority too. You start to discover that life is a lot of fun. You get to play games, your family goes on trips, you get interested in sports or art or both, and you participate in those activities as much as possible.
