I’m feeling stuck in KL and the traveller in me wants to just get up and leave, and go where the wind takes me – even if it means taking odd jobs and forgoing a career here. However, I have a serious boyfriend and due to certain circumstances, he can’t do the same with me. I am torn – I don’t want to be selfish and break up with him, yet I don’t want to be remorseful for not following my dreams. What should I do Tania?

Follow your dreams.
If you had said husband, my answer would be different because of the vows and commitment taken with each other. But my views on boyfriends are very different. Although I do take relationships seriously, if it’s a choice between just a boyfriend and following one’s dream, I have to say that the latter is the way I would go.
Having travelled extensively myself, I would highly recommend anyone who doesn’t have responsibilities holding them back, and who can afford the time and money, to absolutely DO IT! The different adventures, cultures, architecture, cuisines, beauty etc. are amazing experiences that will broaden your mind, enrich your soul, and feed your spirit. Do it now when you have the ‘freedom’ to do so, before getting tied down with family. Until a man puts a ring on your finger girl, you’re still single. NEVER EVER foolishly give up your dreams for a mere boyfriend.
Life is short, babes. Do not live to regret it.
