This is just a perspective I've noticed more recently, that sometimes really breaks me.

This is my third-year solo traveling, I started with a week in Europe in 2019, to 6 weeks in the States in 2021, and 10 weeks across Canada in 2022.

I met a lot of fun people, from all across the world, living in hostels.
And now I'm back to my home in Toronto.

And as I talk to people here of any generation, it's terrifyingly scary how much of a bubble they're in and the lengths they'd go to defend it.
People who have never left their hometown, and get all their social insights from Tiktok, reddit, Twitter, are extremely confident about things they have never experienced.

They take issues that bother them and escalate them to such a large point, but they haven't done any work to actually see how these issues are impacting the real world. They think that because they are older, or because they are on social media, they become the go-to for something.

As a traveler, as you meet more people, most of whom are open-minded, you slowly realize that we all have our struggles and we all want the same things. Its rare to have your struggles overlap with someone else, and its irrational to except others to care about your issues to the level you do.

Lets take cultural appropriation, which is a pretty serious topic of contention here in North America. Now, I grew up in India, where a concept like this was never really addressed. We have many different cultures in India, and I saw them shared across the country.

If you're a North Indian, going to a South Indian wedding, it wasn't considered a crime to dress up in their culture. Something like that wasn't even thought of, because there are bigger things to worry about than who is dressing up as whom.

In North America (Canada and US), its seen from such a negative viewpoint. Now obviously, there are examples of some racists who just want to make a mockery of cultures. Those are exceptions.
But for the most part, I feel like I would want to embody parts of a culture as I learn about it, and come from a place of respect.
But you can't expect me to instantly know about all this, because I come from a place where this wasn't ever discussed.

Expecting someone to care about what you care about is ridiculous. Solo Travel showed me that - people have been raised and go through different lifes. And sometimes thee issues you're passionate about, are just not going to be reciprocated with other, and you learn to accept it and move on.

But then, you interact with others in your hometown, who don't have this notion of acceptance. For them, its like, "if you don't support what I'm supporting, then you're a piece of shit."

And I just feel like a lot of times, the loudest voices are from those who don't travel, because they feel they need to be heard. But they don't have the exposure or experience that makes their viewpoint worth considering, because the world at large is not on the same page with them.

I hope I made sense here, and I was wondering if other solo travellers feel that too. With all kinds of ideas that you learnt on your journey, that were not really accepted when you came back, because you are around people who don't have that sense of perspective.
