Often, they say that we go away because of mediocrity, they say that we travel because it seems cool to be able to do so.
However, in the midst of all unsettling comments, I believe some of us would beg to differ.
And if we’re all on the same page, these are reasons why we go away:
We’re seeking for a fresh start.
Yes, we are searching for a new place to begin again. But truth be told, we are simply avoiding and escaping from issues that cannot be resolved no matter how hard we try to. These things.. they stay in your life and in your heart for as long as you are around. And regardless of the number of attempts we take to search for those answers, they are nowhere to be found.
It is only when we set foot into a foreign city, then we would be able to put it all behind us (even if it means temporarily). Because those things that affects us, they are non-existent in this foreign place.
We feel better.
Often, there are so much left unspoken. Because it doesn’t seem like there is a right person or a right time to tell. Even when we decide to, it doesn’t feel right to put others in your position either.
So, we get away. We go around and visit new places, hoping that those sceneries that take our breathe away would simultaneously take those thoughts away as well.
We’re finally on our own.
No matter how carefree you have been or how much freedom you have enjoyed. Nothing counts more than being able to deal with everything on your own, without anyone’s interference or having to think about how much your actions would affect your loved ones like it did back home.
Because this time, we’d finally be free (even if it means temporarily). And this time, we’d finally be able to stop searching for those answers that do not exist. This time, we hope that time would stay still for the time-being.
