The problem with getting everything is that you run out of reasons to keep trying, and human interaction becomes impossible due to imbalance…Hanging out in Ibiza with famous friends and partying with famous people, able to do whatever I want, and I’ve never felt more isolated…In sweden, I will sit around and wait for my friends with jobs and families to have time to do shit, watching my reflection in the monitor…When we sold the company, the biggest effort went into making sure the employees got taken care of, and they all hate me now…Found a great girl, but she’s afraid of me and my lifestyle and went with a normal person instead…I would Musk and try to save the world, but that just exposes me to the same type of assholes that made me sell minecraft again…People who made sudden success are telling me this is normal and will pass. That’s good to know! I guess I’ll take a shower then!
