Why I quit my job and took a break in Life

thumb_img_1923_1024

It’s very simple, I was not happy with my life.

Now that I’ve come this far from my life back then I can see it even more clearly just how sad I was. There were days when I would wake up with the thought ‘I hope this is the last day of my life’. The thoughts were getting stronger but fortunately, the saner me reasoned with the weaker me that wouldn’t doing just about anything on the planet be better than that. So, I decided to do something that I always dreaded, quitting my job.

The idea was not to take a break to travel full time. I just wanted a break from everything I was holding on to. Traveling to me seems like the best way to utilize a career break so I started working in that direction.

I started saving aggressively to fund my travel. My plans kept changing as I got deeper into researching about it. Starting with a Round the World trip to ending up with a plan to travel South America it was a long journey but worth every minute I spent reading, running around embassies, and sleep I gave up on.

With this post I’m not encouraging anyone to do the same. It may not be the best way to deal with life and traveling certainly is not the solution to all your problems in life. Only you know what works for you, how happy or sad are you in life. Absolutely Nobody, no friend, no family, no boyfriend/ girlfriend, no stranger, no therapist will get it the way you do. You’re the best person to device your medicine.

My medicine is working miracles for me 🙂

  1. Didn’t know you were going through such tough times.. Good that you made your way and your saner and mature self won.. True nothing but you yourself can only help yourself..

    I was also on similar terms and many people go through such phases.. One day a thought came that I am in so much love why this universe is not conspiring to bring us together.. She(or other things whatever) is the one and the most precious thing to me.. How can she be not mine.. Without her I am nothing and my life would not be happier.. It’s better to die..
    I thought – who was there with me all the time, always, without judging without leaving me knowing everything good and bad about me and through all my negatives.. Who didn’t complained a word.. Through my silence and laughs Who was it..
    It was me and my body.. And no one’s else came close to that position…
    So I thought one who was so everything.. I am thinking to kill for someone or something that can only come second.. That sounded not fair to me..
    Love urself and Ur soul carrier.. One day u ll leave it but till that day it will be happily carrying you through all burdens and happiness..
    Love urself.. And live urself..

  2. I was looking into your blog and can safely tell you for whatsoever bad and ugly time of life drove you to road is actually a blessings in disguise. Very few can be lucky as you..you never could learn swim unless pushed to water. May not be best way but one of the most effective way. Keep travelling and never stop..once when you rewind back you would feel in hindsight those were best possible things that could happen to you.

    Keep travelling and keep inspiring!!
