I’ve dated males who I’d described as “wanderers.” They had interests, but they didn’t have a clear path in what they wanted to do. I thought their wandering was a sign that they were unambitious and they had no goals, but in hindsight, that wasn’t the case. They took their time figuring out what they wanted to do. I realize now it’s important to take time wander to find out what you want.
I’m in my late twenties, and I’d consider myself a “wanderer.” I’m working at a job that I enjoy, but it’s something that I’m not sure if I want to continue as a career. The job that I really want would involve me being a home writing, traveling every so often for assignments, and would give me a life-balance. Right now, I’m researching into Search Engine Optimization (SEO) related careers since it’s entry doesn’t require more education since I can’t imagine myself going back to school in this present moment.
I’m terrified of future endeavors such as if I’m able to afford to pay all of my bills, if I’m able to own my home, or if I’m able to pay off all my loans promptly so that my mom and cousin, who are co-signers, get off my back.
That’s the downside of wandering. All the uncertainties and not one clear path.
The upsides of wandering are if you have the time and money, you’re able to travel, explore different choices, and just hang out with friends.
Wandering isn’t so bad after all.
