A remedy for heartbreak: how solo travel changed my life

One month ago, I was getting on a plane to the other side of the world, completely on my own.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared. Scared of having no one else to rely on. Scared of having to deal with new and challenging situations alone. Scared of being forced to come face-to-face with my fears. Scared of being stripped of the familiarity and comfort of my home. But if there’s anything I’ve learned over the last 11 months, it’s that my home isn’t a place or a person. I am my home. And if I can conquer heartbreak, I sure as hell can conquer spending a month alone in another country.

I didn't know what was going to happen or what I was going to find while I was in Thailand. All I knew was that I’d never been more ready to embrace the unknown. I was done with living small, with being defined by my relationship status, with conforming to what was expected of me. I was ready to follow my heart and to fall in love with life again. And I did.
