No matter where we’re from or what our stories are, there is one thing that follows us around. You can’t escape it, you can’t hide from it, and you certainly cannot agree to all of it! It’s worse than the drunken night we ended up passing out on the yard. It is much worse than that one time you got food poisoning and ended up on the toilet for the majority of your trip! It is something that we are all guilty of, no matter how much we want to deny it.
And as we travel, this little thing creeps up in the back of our minds. It’s what holds us back from reaching out and making connections. It’s the factor that makes us scared to go somewhere, or wary because of what we’ve heard. This little thing can ruin perceptions, experiences, and friendships.
