“No matter where you go, there you are.” -Confucius
I am running away.
I am running away from your idea of the “real” world.
I am avoiding your life…
And instead, I’m running towards everything – towards the world, the exotic places it carries, the new people to meet, the multitude of cultures and my own idea of freedom.
While there may be exceptions (as there are with most everything), most people who become nomads and wanderers do so because they want to experience the world — not to escape problems…
Life is short, and we only get to live it once. We should be able to look back and say we did things unimaginable, risky, memorable…
I feel like the reason why people tell us we are running away is because they can’t fathom the fact that we broke the mold and are living outside the norm: to want to break all of society’s conventions, there must be something wrong us with right?
Life is what you make it out to be. Life is yours to create. We are all chained down by the burdens we place upon ourselves, whether they are bills, errands, etc.
If you really want something, don’t wait for the world to tell you to go after it; you go after it yourself.
