8. You Will Become More Confident
By going on a solo adventure, you will end up discovering that the boundaries you sometimes set for yourself aren’t really there and that you are much more capable of everything than you ever thought you would be.
It can seem lonely and scary at first, but by the end, you will feel fierce for going on such an adventure with no one but yourself – and it might sound like a cliché, but sometimes we do need to get lost to find ourselves again.
9. You Have Endless Possibilities
Maybe before traveling on your own, you were stuck with the idea that you depended on people to go somewhere – and if you couldn’t find a company, you would simply not go and that would be final.
Traveling alone for the first time will give you the confidence to meet the whole world by yourself if needed – you will realize that you can be your best companion and that all you need is the will to go.
10. You Will Feel Some Unique Sensations
Imagine waking up by yourself in a new city – every single day you travel alone is going to feel like a blank canvas, and it is in your power to make it colorful and beautiful.
The feeling of being in charge of every waking minute of your day will be so rewarding that you will start wondering why you didn’t do this sooner.
11. You Can Go On A Journey Of Self-Discovery
We are often thought we need people in our lives to feel whole – and we do, humans are social creatures and no one likes to live alone. But how much of who we are is shaped by who is by our side?
And who are we when we are in a new place and can just do and be whoever we want? Maybe you will end up discovering how much you like dancing, and you never tried it because everyone at your hometown club knows you and would stare at you; maybe you will find out you are not that anxious after all, and that you can talk and ask questions and engage in hour-long conversations with strangers. Spending time by yourself is the best way to get to know the real you.
