“The most difficult task for anyone wandering through a foreign land with the hope of gaining some insight into it is the profound need to come to terms with the lives and thoughts of strangers.”
– Simon Winchester, Korea: A Walk Through the Land of Miracles –
Before you come to terms with strangers you must first come to terms with yourself. Spending time abroad will help you to do that because it doesn’t just help you appreciate others, it also helps you to better understand yourself and gain clarity into your own self-concept. So don’t think twice about that next overseas opportunity – because your future self has already comes to terms with it.
