I HAVE WAY TOO MUCH STUFF IN MY ROOM. HOW AM I GOING TO SHIP ALL OF THIS?! WILL MY FRIENDS WANT IT? NO.
MY VISA COSTS $500. WHAT.
THE PLANE RIDE IS 15 HOURS? SOMEONE SHOOT ME WITH A TRANQ DART.
I HAVE TO DO HOW MANY THINGS FOR HOUSING BEFORE I GO?
Did someone just read my mind?
Traveling usually involves going to a place that we’ve never been to, and the uncertain most likely scares us, only the brave souls are mostly excited for the uncertain. I fall into the first group, afraid of the uncertain, because I’m not certain that I’ll fit in or if I belong, but when I think about it some more, once we’ve accepted ourselves, we will have the confidence to be ourselves and not let others make us feel bad for not conforming to the norm. Adjusting may be different from conforming, because it involves just following without doubt, adjusting is seeing which aspects you could accept and feel comfortable doing.
I’m afraid of going beyond my comfort zone because it’ll allow me to learn things about myself that I may not be ready to confront in addition to awareness that may result in positive changes in myself. I know this because, several times, even though I think of myself being in my comfort zone, I’m brought out of it and doubts fall upon me, so deciding to go out of my comfort zone by traveling to an unknown area really scares me. But I have to confront this sooner or later. Somehow. to be continued..
