I’m leaving soon. I’m going out on a road trip that’ll take me months. My hope is to go around, meet new people and to see new places…
yada yada yada
But it dawned on me tonight. After I spoke with someone, a friend and someone I admire, that I think the real reason I’m going on this trip…is because I’m running away.
I want to run away from here. From the friends I’m blessed to have, from the family I’m thankful for, and from the one’s I love because it scares me how little I am. More importantly, I feel how inadequate I am. How I always miss the mark and fall short.
I know I can be a better person for my friends, family and loved ones. I know I can be better to myself. And so I’m running away from the that’s selfish, that’s self-centered, and inconsiderate. I’m running from the me that has failed everyone for so long. I’m going to go around, and spend time away, trying to learn how to be better.
I think everyone should try this at one point in their life.
Try to make a journey for yourself, but also for the one’s you wish to be better for.
