travel, for me then provides a shift or, hopefully a deeper understanding of my personal combination of solitariness and openness. Highly sensitive, I do rely on solitude to remain in balance. However without any protective feature it can be difficult to maintain a live balance anyway. Being closely surrounded by other people (such as one is in budget accomodation), is a challenge or a test of some degree of containment – yet some may say it is only avoidance as the closeness is merely physical, in shared space. I don’t think I’ll ever come to a final conclusion of this complexity, can only aim to maintain a balance… and learn to improve containment through – self respect, of all things.
