All alone in the Metro... but sooo many people around!
Have you ever been with certain people, that are in no way familiar, and this has made you feel even more alone?
I experienced this a lot lately, and I don't know if I was feeling this way because I am homesick, or if I'm homesick now as a result of this.
Earlier this year, all I wanted to do was go travelling again (one last hurrah 🎉) and spend a solid time in India, but not long after I actually arrived in India, I realise how lucky I was to come from Australia (go figure 😂), and I felt so isolated from family and Friends.
In hindsight, it's such a wonderful feeling to finally feel like being settled at home, to want to stay in the one place I grew up and actually make a solid foundation for myself. I was worried I would want to travel forever. I needed to leave again, if I hadn't, I wouldn't have known. Everything is worth giving a go. Even just once! None of this has been in vein, in a way, this whole trip has been even more incredible then the last.
In the meantime, I must get into the headspace of just worrying about where I am. It's hard to not think of home and the beach and my life there, but this may be the only chance I get of being alone in a big country like India, and fully experiencing a life so far from home. India, to me, is and always will be home. Deep in my heart. And that's where it will remain. - 36 minutes ago
