Thank you so much.
Have a nice day ahead.
If we accept that it makes sense, it can only be in these circumstances:
Some people have been outside England. There are only two possibilities -
My friends have been outside England.
My parents have been outside England.
One of these two statements is true. Once we know which, then the other is automatically not true.
"Either my friends or my parents are always away from England. I'm fine with that because I'm used to being left alone."
That sense is supposed to mean that, at any time, one of those groups (my friends or my parents) are away; not that only one group is always away, and the other group is always here (or in England, as the case seems to be).
Your sentence still doesn't make sense in the context you've given, because it would include such scenarios as: your parents were outside England for a month, five years ago, and your friends have never been outside England.
So, why would you be used to them being abroad? And why wouldn't you be fine with it?
