Something I am curious about. Not really a political thing.
I was speaking to a friend last night and let him know that my parents are quite well off. He replies with "you realize that you could live a much better lifestyle, right?"
I replied "I could, I have access to the resources, but I want to do it on my own"
He basically thought I was being insane, but for me its a matter of principal (side note, this guy is much more financially successful than I am). I want to be my own person, so when I am old, I can look at my life with satisfaction knowing I was my own person. Is this insane to you?
