Misanthropist Love Travel Are you somebody who hates people; somebody who hates humanity, or who dislikes and distrusts other people and tends to avoid them.
If so, then become a traveler, you can avoid intimate relationships, and if by chance, you do get close to someone by accident, you just leave, no worries as you leave saying, “I am a traveler, I leave, that is what I do.”
When you do not share a common language, it is like two dogs smelling each other, there is no need to care, unless the other dog wishes to bite.
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine over Skype.com yesterday, discussing the word Gajin in Japan, or maybe Farang in Thailand when it hit me…
“I know why people think Thailand people love them.” “I know why people would think Japanese people love them.”
A true understanding of a culture comes only with intimate relationships within that culture.
A Misanthropist would love to travel, for example, I speak very little of the Thailand language, and Thailand people speak almost zero English. It is amazing place, there is almost zero need to ever talk with a Thailand person. Yes, you can point and say something like “Chicken Fried Rice.”
Then hope they understand, or just expect the Thailand people to say, “Same Same.” When something else comes, and you say, “But Different.”
There is no meeting of the minds, only meeting of the cash.
I speak Spanish and French, and many words in Thai, Portuguese, and many a Hello in many languages. I like people, therefore I must learn the language, and at least meet them halfway.
However, as I said, Travel is great for people who despise friends, to not want commitment, want to be free of any intimate social problem. You can truly be anonymous, a true nothing with the world.
I know of many a person I have met on the road who do their best to not talk with anybody, they just go about their day, and nobody can bother them because there is no shared language.
I suppose if you Sister, Brother, Uncle, Aunt, Mother or Father wants to move to another country to live, ask yourself, “Does this person hate people?”
