So I know there are a few threads with people asking whether or not to do their YTT, but I'd love some input in my situation.
Yoga has been a big part of my life for about 2 years, and I've been finding for a while now that I really, really want to know more, and immerse myself more, and the want to do my YTT has been getting stronger. I would probably end up doing some yoga teaching, however the main reason I feel so compelled to do it is for myself. I have just finished high school, and have deferred Uni to take a Gap year. Logistically, it makes sense. I have researched the course I would want to do, and can afford it and have the time to dedicate to it. Almost everything is telling me to just do it, however, I am being held back by fear, I think. I am young and in addition to my grounded, peaceful side that I feel my yoga plays a part in, I have part of me that likes to go out and party, and drink etc... When I'm feeling that aspect of my personality more strongly, the idea of YTT scares the hell out of me because of how I'll change, and I worry that I won't have a lot in common with most of my friends anymore. But then when I'm feeling grounded and secure, I feel like that side of me isn't very authentic, and I'm only behaving in that way because I feel like I SHOULD have that wild crazy time of my youth. But then I just don't know. I'm feeling quite torn at the moment, and would love your thoughts. xx
