When I was 13, my dream was to travel to Japan as I was fascinated with the country, the people, the culture, food etc as well as being a huge anime and manga fan in which I was always drawing anime or manga characters every single day and I always visualised myself being in Japan exploring and always believed in myself that one day I would go there on my own which would be very exciting.
When I left home to join the Army to try and overcome my Social Anxiety Disorder which was severe before I left home, I still had the passion, excitement and belief that I would one day go to Japan on my own. The money I was earning I constantly saved until I had enough to afford to go and by luck I had a three week holiday at Christmas/New Year I which I then felt it was the best time to go. Also by luck, I managed to get a cheap return flight and decent accommodation at a affordable price in which I was then ready to go.
This was the first ever that I travelled alone and being a Social Anxiety Disorder sufferer, it felt very scary at first but very exciting at the same time. When I went, I was very nervous to appoach the Japanese people to get directions and to speak their language as my japanese language was very limited. But I was amazed as to how kind, helpful and welcoming japanese people are in which I felt more safe and alot more confident within myself and towards other people as each each day went by during my holiday in Japan. Japan is one of the safest countries in the world.
I believe that my self-belief and positive vision of going to Japan on my own may have helped by the Law Of Attraction which resulted in me joining the Army to earn a secure wage and given the time off at Christmas/New Year which is a special time to go on holiday as well being to find a bargain in the flight and decent accommodation to have the holiday. It was the best travelling holiday I ever had and really made me feel alot more confident within myself and towards other people as well as helping me to my overcome my Social Anxiety Disorder.
