The world has become chaotic. For the benefit of yourself, you must escape from the realities of the world, shut out the daily monotonous life for some time and take a solo trip to your favorite place, at least once in life. Not because it is fancy and cool, although it is, but also because it will do wonders in your life. Don’t know how?
Here is why:
To feel free
There is nothing bad about travelling and going out on a trip with a group of friends, however you must have noticed that reluctantly you end up doing something you aren’t really interested in just because your other friends want to do it or you have to give up on something just because the rest of your group doesn’t feel like doing it. That is the kind of freedom you need; the freedom to do absolutely anything you want on a trip. A solo trip guarantees you this freedom where you can travel to any place of your choice, you can either take a flight or go on a road trip, try out a sport that you like, eat at a restaurant that you find interesting, etc.
To taste Independence
There is no other feeling as great as the feeling of independence. Travellers who travel alone usually come back feeling more empowered and confident. This is quite obvious. When you travel alone, you end up helping and depending only on yourself rather than anybody else. This way you learn to handle yourself alone. You travel alone from one destination to the other, you figure out ways and routes all by yourself, coordinate and communicate with unknown people for hotel and flight bookings, learn to take care of your own belongings and so much more. Experiencing all this will give you the strength and confidence you had been missing in life. This way you too will end up feeling empowered.
To make new connections
Driving yourself out from the friend circle you regularly talk to, for a while, and making new connections and bonds with the locals of the place you travel to, adds a different kind of value to life. Imagine a group of friends or a family sitting on the bench next to yours in a restaurant and you going and joining them. That would be amazing! Even if this sounds like something you wouldn’t do, it’s a solo trip, you will end up doing something you otherwise wouldn’t do. Solo trips give you the advantage of making some really fun and amazing new connections.
To explore yourself
You might think that you know yourself very well, but while on a solo trip, you will explore yourself as a completely new person. Trust me you will love yourself even more, once you get back from the trip. Solo trips gives you a chance to connect with yourself, helps you listen to your inner voice, helps in finding solutions to problems you currently might be facing. A solo trip also might change your perspective towards life and will make you a more positive and accepting person.
To just be you
Let’s face it, we are ourselves only when we are all alone. There are hardly any times when we are left alone for quite long, which is only possible if you stay alone. In the presence of other people, we are always expected to behave and act in a certain way. Now just imagine you are on a trip and all alone. Do you even understand what it means? It means you don’t have to deal with people, you don’t have a fake laugh, you don’t have to pretend as if you are listening, nothing. You can absolutely be just you without having the fear of thinking what ‘others’ will think.
Some amount of solitude is required by every single person. A solo trip grants you your rightful solitude. Don’t leave that chance of catching hold of your solitude. Take a solo trip at least once in life.
