The three weeks I spent in India were freeing.
When we are in our comfortable homes, most of us are so attached to the things around us, material objects, lifestyle, people, that it seems we cannot live without these things. This attachment ultimately leads to dependency. We try to protect our comfortable lives to the point where we do and say things against ourselves and our innermost realisations, this ends up harming us. A popular example of this is pleasing other people in order to continue receiving approval from them.
The three weeks in a different world had shown me that I don’t need to be in my comfort zone, clinging onto the things around me. I can thrive and be happy regardless of the outside world. As a human being, I can adapt to any situation outside of my comfort zone and through that, grow.
