I'm starting to wonder whether I need friends. I am in a position in my life now where I love my job and enjoy working, and it is the time I spend outside work with friends and family that bother me. I try to keep my mind away from all the drama among friends and family but sometimes it is just hard to avoid. I am trying my hardest and find that the best way to escape for all the hardship of friends and family is to just do a breakup. For me, I am getting to that stage where a nice evening alone at home streaming a movie or TV show is so much more relaxing and attractive than going to a friend's housewarming or a family gathering where you have to make conversation with annoying people. I am starting to question the conventional wisdom that friends are essential.
