Happier Abroad: Isn’t it a pity how most people want their slavery and feel empty without it?


“Isn’t it a pity how most people want
their slavery and feel empty without it?”

That’s a quote from the HappierAbroad.com website. I came across the site while checking my tracker statistics, when I noticed that someone on that forum had posted a link to one of my Saipan sites in a discussion about dating abroad.

The site focuses more on the social and dating side of being happier abroad. It has a lot of information and perspectives of many other aspects of life and happiness, and mirrors what a lot of people I meet on this side of the world are saying about their former lives back home.

That particular quote (“Isn’t it a pity how most people want their slavery and feel empty without it?”), is something Happier Abroad founder, Winston Wu, wrote to me during an email correspondence about his essay on true freedom on his site. Check it out!

  1. hey Erik,
    Thanks for that! Well, freedom has always been important to me, but I guess you can say it all started to gather steam from my first day in corporate America. It was within the first fifteen minutes into my first job working as a civil engineer that I realized that I absolutely hated the concept of working for someone else. I made a promise to myself that I would do everything I could to escape!
    If I wrote my entire story here, I’d end up writing a book! But, I’d be glad to continue a dialogue and share and answer any specific questions that come to mind and that are key for your own situation!
