Definitely move out. Get your own place. I highly recommend it.
However, I think you'll find you'll take your annoyances with you.
You're right. It's exactly as you say
I've spent the last years "moving on" trying to find a better place, but I still can't get rid of my annoyances. Now I'm living in Thailand, and it's even worst!!
It's not the place, it's not the sounds, it's definitively my mind. Someone said that the best place to fight is in the front-line, not in the happy and quiet retirement environment. But it's like being caught in a vicious circle...
I’m going to practice metta with the noisy street dogs, the crazy birds, the live music from the distant pub, TV's, frogs, mosquitoes...
