I only disagree with the sentiment that our lives are not for ourselves. They 100% are. To do with what we think will yield the most rewarding lives possible, for who we are personally. I personally agree with you; I’d much rather share those beautiful mountains and oceans with people I love, but that is not universally fulfilling. Some people really do get the same ultimate pleasure from taking in the world alone, and that is okay. Life, as is travel, is a personal journey.
