Becoming a hermit
Have you ever considered just withdrawing from society altogether? Forgetting about having friends, or an extended family, and leading a solitary life?
Lately I just keep thinking that people, as a whole, are vastly overrated,
and it seems like a better idea every day.

Yep. Id bring along my wife and my dog though. Canada, mate! Mountain lake, cabin, hunting, fishing, shooting at low flying tourist planes.
Tbh, I would love doing it (except maybe for the shooting)
I'm afraid of nothing, it's the only way to be.

kinda living a lone life too. It not really hermit life. Hermit life is where you are completely detached from society which include Internet, not pay electricity (or making your own), Shopping and meeting family, and resolved to chase/grow your own food.
I just live detached from the others including family for about 8 years. The only people I see is coworkers which I avoid to converse, chat with some people on the internet I never saw their face and that's pretty much it.

I guess yeah, I've thought about what it would be like.
No, I wouldn't want to be a hermit.
I'd personally like to live a life where there are lots of good people close to you, and not ones that are more likely to get mad quick, and do something stupid.
Because there ARE good people in the world. It's just harder to find them.
Lol, It sucks that I'm asian. I can't help it if I look like a million other people.

Dude I've been pretty sick for the last year and as a result pretty socially isolated...it gets old quickly, trust me. You need other people to keep your own problems in perspective, to laugh and have fun and stress over. Life gets pretty boring without that.

If you're locked up all day and don't talk to people or atleast go out to dance or have some drinks around people, where are you going to get inspired from? Where is the art going to come from?An artist's work is a statement of his life... if you live a bland, closed off life, it will show in your work. It's ridiculous to me, how so many people think they're above it all, that people as a whole are'nt good enough for you. That's bullshit. Not trying to step on any toes, but I think you need a serious reality check, man..
and here you are, bitching and complaining about how you don't need people, but you start this thread looking for other people's thoughts or approval. That's too funny.

^ Have to agree with Mr. Bacon on this one.
Might be fun to experience it temporarily, although living out in the bush alone isn't a particularity secure thought.
