Yes, I’m single…maybe I am single because I want to at a certain point. I always state that I’m not looking for someone but if he crosses my path, our life will fit, I would love to…but…
A person who loves solo travel is seen as a free spirit. A true nomad who’s broken free from the shackles of society and dared to march to the beat of their own drum. The solo traveler doesn’t need another’s reassurance, they make big bold decisions every single day.
Now I’m master of my own destiny, I know what I want and I know where I am. I’ve got some goals set and that’s where I’m going. I don’t let myself get destructed by another, to help the other achieve their goals..by prioritizing the goals of the other… and because of that shifting my own self to the side.
You’ll never hear a solo traveler tell you anything but how wonderful, life-changing and liberating it is to travel alone. It’s all true, you’ll learn your biggest lessons in love, life and the beautiful planet we share. You’ll change as a person and your very core will be strengthened. You’ll never depend on another, you will be the true master of your own destiny. Meeting new people will become a daily occurrence and that will quickly teach you never to settle for less. You will establish your tribe, a mixture of old friends and new. Initially you’ll let all kinds of weird and wonderful people into your life but you’ll quickly learn to be discerning about who sticks around.
BEING SINGLE MAKES ME HAPPY
Often I hear people say: I don’t want to be traveling alone, I really don’t like that. I can’t share my experience and I probably feel alone. These reactions come from people that are not single. So when at home they share their every day experiences too with their family or partner. I sometimes get the feeling that I need to defend my lifestyle. Apparently, for a lot of people, alone is not good….it seems that if you can not share ..immediately, right on that spot, with your partner, family or travel companion it’s not nice…
If you need more convincing, here’s an appealing numbered list to peer-pressure you to travel solo:
1. You won’t worry about what anyone thinks.
2. You won’t be on anyone else’s schedule.
3. You’ll meet new people without feeling bad.
4. You’ll learn how to meet new people.
5. You’ll learn to be independent.
6. You’ll learn a lot about your personality.
7. You’ll actually experience what’s around you.
9. You’ll learn to appreciate good qualities in people.
SINGLE ALSO MEANS: DOING EVERYTHING I WANT!!
