When I left, it was the first time that I separated from my community and therefore I felt a little bit alone and unprotected. Fortunately, the mates I met during the travel became like my new family during some time. I talked with them about a lot of things; we shared information and explained our plans. Of course it was very important to understand who was a real friend and who had instead other intentions and was badly advising me. Knowing and sharing this experience with these good friends helped me to gain the courage to face the situation of uncertainty in which I found myself. It also helped giving a meaning to the difficult situation I was in.


Try to become friends with young people that may be in your same situation but trying to understand well who they are, this could orient and help you.
