Stop Telling Me To Quit My Job & Travel The World

by Stephanie Maida · May 16, 2016

In a post-Eat Pray Love society, and one in which millennials make up most of the workforce (who you callin' lazy?), it is a tempting thought to one day just quit your job and leave it all behind. You're still young enough, possibly crazy enough, and free enough to do so - theoretically.

While it's bad enough to feel the inherent tugging of unrest and wanderlust that comes with every quarter-life crisis, we red-blooded Facebook and Instagram users must also be inundated with countless articles and images encouraging us to live the dream (hey, even we've published a few). Not only do they just increase our ever-building FOMO about seeing the world, but some of them actually go so far as to make us feel guilty if we don't. Here's why that needs to stop.
