I remember this post, I didn't realize it was you. Are you still wanting to travel? My guess is yes, although maybe not right now.
"....i just think i cant handle these things alone. does it mean i am not only unprepared for travelling alone,but also not that type,i mean maybe i am not suitable for it.i have no idea about it, just feel a little sad for myself.
I think you sound very smart, you're smart for realizing what you can't handle alone... and that makes you smart enough to travel alone... when you're ready. I don't hink it means you are "not the type" to travel alone, I think it just means you have realized some things you need to research more, and that's a smart thing.
Here's one thing I did, and am still doing, I think I mentioned it a while back, maybe here, maybe not...
You get a small box or container that you like. You can decorate it or whatever to make it more fun.... and you write down all your obstacles, one on each small slip of paper. (maybe cut one regular piece into 6-8 smaller pieces.) On each piece you write a worry, an obstacle, etc. Here are some examples:
- I will get lost
- I don't have enough money
- I will be bored
You keep all these in the box. You figure out how to solve each one, and write the answer on the back. For example:
- make sure I can speak the language
- get maps now and study them ahead of time
- save money, or make more money
As you do these things, you can throw away the papers, or keep them to see your progress later. Soon you will have worked on all your fears or obstacles, and you will be more prepared to go.
