Say, “I hate Toronto.”
No you don’t. You’re jealous. You had to move to one of the softer cities because Toronto smells bad / the people are fake and boring / the Leafs suck / or any other excuse you tell yourself to help you sleep at night.
Because the truth is: You just couldn’t hack it here.
Toronto is a big city, especially when compared to the majority of other Canadian towns. It can be impersonal, competitive, and there are absolutely people ready to step on you to get ahead. This is a symptom of living in a place where there are boundless opportunities; we are passionate about what we do and every day are witness to what we can make of ourselves with hard work and tenacity.
Endless opportunities also mean you make your own fun. Seek and you shall find. If you’re into LARPing, would like to play pickup dodgeball, or want to discuss shamanic practice, there’s a group, club, or community for you. If something truly is lacking, start it yourself. I’m sure you’ll find someone else who is interested in competitive toe wrestling.
