DETERRENTS TO TRAVEL ARE IN THE QUESTION MARK OF LIFE

Pop Psychology Question #3 – What shall become of me? This Ultimate Question never arises until things go wrong and then it’s the only one you hear. People who can’t board an airplane because they read about crashes are really trying to avoid that ultimate question. But, 99% of the time, that question will begin to plague you right in the comfort of your own home. You receive a dire diagnosis; your spouse dies; you lose your job; the market crashes; your home is foreclosed upon; a tornado strikes. Suddenly, questions 1 & 2 are no longer important and you want quick and comforting answers about your future. How will I survive this? In what shape will I be in when the tsunami rolls back out to sea?
Obviously, there is no avoiding the vicissitudes of life, so there’s no logic in avoiding travel just to stay safe. That’s why prying the lid off of what’s really going on when you worry about something that might be the least bit risky, can free you up to take the chance. Just realize that it’s only you, talking to yourself.
