Is anybody else get stricken with wanderlust? For me it is constant. I always want to be on the move and it is the only time I feel free. I can't stand routines or anchoring myself down with possessions. The problem is that I know it isn't feasible to do in today's society unless you have plenty of money. I personally wouldn't mind living out of my car or walking wherever I need to go.
The thing that keeps me rooted is that I don't have enough money to start a life like that. Plus, none of my friends or family would understand why I feel the need to wander. I am stuck in a job I hate that gets me so depressed that I spend most of my extra money on things that give me just a little bit of happiness in order to get through the day.
All the books, songs, artists and movies I love tend to be about drifters and wanderers or written by drifters and wanderers.
Does anybody else have this problem or have any suggestions to help me get through it?
