You know what I like so much about this website? We come from such an eclectic mix of backgrounds, religions, cultures and have different
lifestyles and yet to know that despite that we share the same thoughts and have the same insecurities which we feel comfortable enough to share via this site, is so incredibly comforting to me and I honestly feel like it's sort of family that I talk to. Does that make sense to any of you??
I think it makes a lot of sense, when you travel or even dream of travelling you become more open to new ideas, cultures, in my own case your way of thinking changes.... but deep down you still have your thoughts, whether you're nervous, apprehensive, excited, happy, lonely, etc..... and it is always nice to know you're not alone, it builds your confidence to know that whatever the world throws at you , you can get through it as so many people have proved here that they can.......... after all nothing is impossible ......
so true Raven. Things might seem a bit impossible at times but if you look long enough and hard enough and are maybe prepared to make a few sacrifices along the way, you can make it happen. And if it doesn't - despite all the effort - then it simply wasn't meant to be and there is some comfort to be had by that
PS You still stalking??????
What I like about everyone sharing their feelings is that people also share their experiences so you not only see people who are feeling the same anxiety as yourself, but you also get to hear people who have been there before and have acted on their impulse to travel. Thanks to all that show us that it's possible!
yep !!! its a job for life
besides the experience of other travellers which is always great to hear, I also really like hearing about the countries from the people who live there.......
Spot on about the family feeling. It is a kind of family as the folk on here understand more about what you do/why than most of your genetic family and other friends do
It's very interesting to hear everyone's experiences and how they've dealt with this common problem of feeling a bit lost and unsure. I've spoken to so many people in their 20s that feel this way... maybe it has something to do with the fact that so many things change during this decade of our lives that we might not feel ready for (such as graduating from university and face the reality of finding a job, or getting married or something) and it's nervewracking because you (or maybe just i) figured you would have so many things settled by this time that don't feel quite resolved yet. You ask yourself questions like "can i really do this for the REST of my life?" It's like being caught in a snowball that keeps growing and you cannot get out of. It's almost as though there is a midlife crisis that is attacking 20somethings.
But the good thing is that things do get settled and resolved, even if all we resolve is our minds into accepting that we dont have all the answers. The answers are never set in stone, and there is never only one distinct path that you are obliged to take. Try new things, different things, things you never thought you'd do. Everything however, is a compromise, so just narrow down your list to the bare essentials of what you MUST experience in your life, then just go for it! Some things will materialize, others might not, but at least action was taken. You will never look back and think "what if..."
Well, life is up and down. There're bad things and there're good things, that's one of the philosophy of Yin & Yang.
Thus, that's the balance of life.
Me myself have problem to crack, to face and to solve.
There were so many tough moments that I faced before.
I'm tired and wouldn't wanna dig out those bad memories back again. All I can say is, after struggling through & overcome those problems, I realised that I'm a more complete and mature man now.
This forum is such a great place for us to share our dreams and to convince each other to enjoy life to the fullest.
Indeed... it is so true to say that, either you travel or not to travel.
I've a simple homepage to share on. And that's who I am.
