On the merits of it, traveling is about seeing new places and giving a bit back at the same time. But traveling in fact way more then that, it is about opening yourself to new horizons. Traveling exposes you to different cultures and landscapes. This means that there is more to traveling then just videos and photographs, it’s the transformation that one undergoes as a consequent of these journeys matters the most. It is this transformation that makes traveling so important. Some say that all traveling yields is excessive expenditure, and that money can used for far important matters like house rent, mortgage or college fund. It’s not about ticking off the “bucket list” and being able to recount all the countries you’ve visited, but the way travel impacts you as a person, your interactions with others and your humanity towards the rest of the world. Being a strong proponent of traveling and how it can really help someone out in figuring where are heading or a perfect escape from our routine, I believe that traveling is a luxury that everyone cannot afford.
- Allows you to be more confident
Traveling allows you to step into situations that you are completely unaware of hence forcing you to operate outside your comfort zone. Most people throughout their lives avoiding doing things which are beyond their comfort consequently they withheld themselves from opportunities to grow and become better. For most us traveling can be something different or even going to a new city. Or you go to a country where you have difficulty communicating and you get stranded there, the way you will come up with solutions is what contributes to your character development and confidence booster. Whatever the case is, once you take that difficult initial step then you’ll probably be surprised at the transformation that takes place. You will discover a side of yourself that you are unaware, and gain confidence by releasing how easily you can adjust to various circumstances.
- It puts life in perspective
Most of us, who are privileged to have had a life full of luxuries and comfort, take things for granted. And this is normal human behavior who tends to get so consumed in his life that he fails to recognize the blessing he has, how he is far better than thousands and how he should be thankful for what he has rather than fretting over what he doesn’t. Traveling can play an important role of putting our life into perspective. Since it allows us with the opportunity to interact with various communities in different parts of the world. It gives us the opportunity to relate and compare our lives with those we visit and that is when someone can actually release how better a life they are living. Most common and fundamental reason behind people committing suicides is the lack of satisfaction, traveling can help you release how better you are doing in comparison to thousands and that you should focus more on the positives in your life.
