I get this more than anything I have ever read on Medium.
Tere Culbert

thank you, teri. you are so right. this particular person would often question my desire for “travel” and essentially told me that the only reason i needed to leave, was because i was unhappy with who i was. when you compare it to staying in a bad relationship, it reminds me again that this is not the reason i chose to leave.

thank you for understanding, and for reading. :)
