Always trying to be the most extroverted personality became exhausting. At times, it felt like I had to be “on” all the time. To be an attracting personality to make friends. However, travelling for long periods, I realized I needed a break. Contrary to my personal assumption of how to meet people, during these “rest periods” at local coffeeshops, I met some incredible friends.
While several believe this myth of solo travelling being lonely & hard to make friends, I can say, that’s all it is. A myth, a false assumption. Because I’ve never met as many incredible people, while feeling overcrowded from laughter and experiences shared among others than I have while solo travelling.
When I stopped being the person I thought people wanted to be around all the time, I started making more friends.
