How do you know you're on the right path?
It may feel lonely, but traveling solo allows you to go at your own pace, to focus on your own needs. If it's rough going and difficult to navigate, you have the opportunity to build strength, character and stamina. Meandering paths mean you'll get to experience more along the way, while shorter routes let you enjoy your destination longer. An entourage can help to carry the load --- which is good since they probably created most of it! - and make the journey pass quickly. You might even branch off in an entirely new direction, one you never even considered before.
Whatever path you're on can be the right one, but it's up to you to decide where you want to go, and to take the first step toward getting there.
