Hope you found this article as easily as you found yourself
There’s something ridiculously irritating about our generation and it’s scratched at me ever since college; why does my generation spend prolonged periods of time travelling the world? With the average annual leave in Britain being about 25 days, most adults have about 5 weeks of holiday per year, so why not travel for 5 weeks every year? Going on prolonged trips is like doing the cinnamon challenge; it’s shit.
So I went on a journey to find out why my generation love spending prolonged periods of time travelling. In-fact, the answers were fascinating and resoundingly similar. I felt like I had walked into a thai monastery to be given wisdom by a series of medieval monks when I heard the trending answer:
“To find myself”
No. No. When did you lose yourself? What happened you poor thing? I don’t even know who I’m talking to when I ask these questions because apparently the person doesn’t exist as of yet.
Do people really expect to somehow discover some kind of new level of consciousness by travelling over a prolonged period of time opposed to travelling in short stints? I’ve got a message for you, as cliche as it may be, you don’t find yourself, you make yourself. You create your future and giving a romantic excuse as to why you’re wasting time just shows your severe insecurity.
Stop trying to find yourself and start forging your future. Life isn’t a journey, it’s a tooth for tooth fight with the world.
