BE FEARLESS ✨
I have traveled to many parts of the world, alone. Since the age of 16. It takes guts to travel alone, eat in a restaurant alone, explore a new place alone. However, it is all the more worth it. In this day and age of feminism and progressive agendas, I am shocked at the response I receive sometimes. In several countries (some western countries, too) customs officers have asked how I have the means to travel, who paid for my travel, and why I travel alone. In my life, family members and friends and acquaintances are also astounded by the fact that I travel alone. Most of the comments I hear are usually, "Why don't you travel with a man, it is safer", "I could never do that, I'm too scared", or "As a woman, aren't you afraid for your safety?" The most annoying comment to date I've heard, "Get married first, then travel with your husband." The people who usually ask these questions are the ones who are raising their girls to be dependent on men. By telling women that they should be afraid and rely on a man for help, what are we really teaching them? And why should I wait to get married to enjoy the benefits of traveling? 🤷♀️ Traveling alone brings joys you cannot possibly imagine. It makes you rely solely upon yourself. So plan well, go out and do things. Be fearless, do not let fear stop you from doing what you love!
Being totally responsible for yourself, it's inevitable that you will discover just how capable you are.
