People are judgmental, no matter their country, religion, or financial status. No one leaves others alone when all they want is the freedom from criticism. However, even though it is difficult to admit, but one should better accept it in time that people do make opinions about others. Sometimes, these opinions are based on facts and at other times on myths. Nevertheless, the good idea is not to get influenced by other’s judgments and create a happy life for yourself. If you listen too much to what others have to say about you, nothing can save you from being dissatisfied.
Travel keeps envy at bay
Jealousy is the most common reaction when people learn that you travel so much, at least more than them. And God forbid, if you live the nomadic lifestyle, people start thinking that you are lucky to have such luxurious life, while conveniently ignoring the challenges that the nomads have to face. When you travel to different places and meet new people, you will discover that some people in your peer group will always hate you because of the inadequacy in their mind about themselves. Just because they are dissatisfied of their existence, they like to make other’s lives miserable because of their sadist mindset.
Ignoring such people is the only solution to deal with people who envy you. It is not easy being a traveler, even if it appears seamless to others. If you seem happy to others, it will certainly make others desolate. Whenever someone tries to make you feel down because you are missing out on a few things, do not forget that you are achieving many things that they are not. Let them do their job while you carry on your own thing.
Travel changes your definition of existence
When you were not traveling, you would define yourself according to your profession, family, and place of dwelling. However, as you start traveling frequently, the definition of your being changes. You do not define yourself as a banker, doctor, engineer, or entrepreneur. You become a traveler first and then someone else. The boundaries of profession, religion, and country do not outline your existence. Some travelers call themselves bloggers, even if their regular profession is something else. Some people find their employment in every country they visit.
Travel gives you the freedom to start over
Whenever you feel dissatisfied with what you were doing, you can have the freedom to pick up the broken pieces and restart your life again, many times in one life. A regular existence does not give you the courage to restart a new career, shift to a new city, or change your religion. Being a traveler liberates your mind from the judgments that society makes about you and everyone else. You can start over your life again just because travel makes you brave enough to take bold decisions. Moreover, you learn to ignore the judgmental society whenever they tell you not to take the risk.
Travel gives you the wisdom to listen to the right kind of people and ignore the judgmental ones. No matter how hard you try, there will always be someone who will be unhappy at your happiness. There will always be someone who would want you to live the miserable life that they are living. There will always be someone who would want to pull you down just because they cannot see people succeeding. Take full advantage of being a traveler and open your mind to new things in the world. There is much more to see and do in this little lifetime than just being judged by the insignificant folks of the world.
