Travel. Life’s Greatest Cure for Internal Conflicts

What’s the best cure for internal conflicts?

At least for the large internal conflicts involving a career, relationships, or living situation — the answer is travel. At least in my book it is.

Many travelers travel while they sort out their internal conflicts. It’s not at all uncommon. If Monica McCarthy hadn’t been traveling for this exact reason, our lives certainly would not have crossed in Chiang Mai.

Whenever someone tells me they don’t know what they want in life, my answer is always the same. Go travel. Travel is the best soul searching tool at your disposal — particularly if you go out on your own and partake in a bit of solo travel (which I’d highly recommend). It gives you time to think, gain some perspective, and figure out what you want in life. Don’t get me wrong, travel won’t SOLVE your life problems as both Steph and Jodi have mentioned. But it does help you determine priorities in life.

As it turns out, more travel was exactly what I needed for me to move beyond my lingering career conflict.
