5 ways in which Travel ruins you for the world.

Yes it’s true.

Travel ruins you for the world in the most heartbreaking-ly beautiful* ways possible, it makes you see things differently, and constantly challenges things you thought you knew about the world, and yourself. After having travelled, you are no longer the same person, who follows the crowd. You’ve changed in beautiful ways that the world at large isn’t ready for as yet.

*heartbreaking because, you’ve finally found that one thing that you love, and the world isn’t ready for it yet (which is just sad) ; and beautiful is the journey of self discovery that you’ve set out on.

Here are 5 ways in which it just ruins you for the rest of the world :

1. Priorities.

If there’s anything that luggage packing teaches you, it is the lesson of prioritization, in the same way that you don’t carry your entire house with you on a trip, you learn to filter out the unnecessary junk from your life – things and people included.

How it ruins you for the world : you start to see reality between the cracks of the masks people often put on, and you’d rather let the mask go, than deny the reality that hides behind it. Because who has the time for trivialities and petty people when bigger things are calling out to you?



2. Home is no longer one single place.

The more you travel, the more you come to realize that Home isn’t, can’t and shouldn’t be just one single place. And it’s devastating how everyone just spends all their lifetimes in one place, when there’s a whole world waiting to be explored.

How this ruins you for the world : Well for starters, you’ll no longer be able to go back to the mundane, and routine will bore you.


3. You know what it’s like to be pushed out of your comfort zonehttp://i1.wp.com/favim.com/orig/201107/30/camp-camping-girl-gras-log-Favim.com-116915.jpg?resize=342%2C249

With geographical distances, come language and cultural differences, and the transition can, admittedly, be overwhelming at times; but once you get through that time spent out of your comfort zone, you realize how freeing the experience can be. Nothing or very few things can deter you now, and a new found feeling of being invincible takes over. You let go of the crutches of old school, done and done recipes for how to go through life, and explore the new avenues that open up before you.

How it ruins you for the world : The world will see you take risks, succeed, fail, and when they’ll expect you to sulk like they do, you’ll figure out a way to turn your failure into a success, and they’ll still be moping about, confined to their comfort zones.


4. You know just how quickly time is passing us all by http://i0.wp.com/i.huffpost.com/gen/1811108/images/o-TRAVELING-facebook.jpg?resize=408%2C204You realize that there is so much to see, and do, but not enough time. You must let loose, and let loose you will.

How this ruins you for the world : this is the worst kind of way travel ruins you, because you’ve seen glimpses of the beauty that fills the world, and you know there’s more, and that you will go see it all. The world despises you for it.



5. You’ve given up trying to ‘fit in’ 

Since you know that the world is a big and diverse place, you welcome and look forward to the differences that exist between people, and hold your own ground as against doing what the trends dictate.

How this ruins you for the world : this is the second worst way in which it ruins you, because you know there’s too much to do and very little time, you stop letting other people tell you what to do with your life and time. The world hates your guts.

So go on,
Ruin yourselves.
