Breaking the News & Building Support

Breaking_News_BuildingSo, you have decided that you are ready to take the leap into the full-time RV lifestyle. There are many emotional aspects that will take place during the process of making this decision. There will also be many emotional aspects that your families will have to adjust to as well. All of these aspects will be covered as we explore the emotions of breaking the news and building support.

If the RV lifestyle is your dream then there is no reason not to make it a reality if you can afford to do so. You will experience many emotions over leaving friends, family and your home. These feelings are perfectly normal and you will adjust to these things overtime. You will also have the opportunity to make new friends on the road and in campgrounds whom will soon become a new family to you. The feelings of leaving family and friends depend mainly on how close you are with them. If you talk to them on a daily basis and spend time with them consistently, then it is going to be more difficult to leave those people. Breaking the news to these people will be tough, but with modern technology there is no reason that you can't keep in touch. Some of your friends will be incredibly happy for you while other will think you are crazy. The RV lifestyle is often difficult for people to grasp, as they have never thought of it as an option. 

Communication will be key in keeping in touch with your friends and family. Your friends and family will soon become interested in your travels and they will look forward to your calls or emails. This communication will also become more meaningful to you as you will want to tell them about your latest trip or excursion. Don't be surprised if you have difficulties contacting friends and family, as you will probably think about them more often than they think about you. This is normal and due to the fact that they are busy with life while you are enjoying life. Email is conveniently available to you as it is to your family. There are numerous hotels, libraries and coffee shops that have wireless Internet and all you need is a laptop with a wireless adapter. At some hotels you will be able to pick up a wireless connection in their parking lot.

Leaving your community and selling your home is another difficult step into realizing the full-time RV lifestyle. You will begin to realize that you have many ties to your community and that you depend on many people in your community. From your hairdresser to your doctor, you will miss these people but the flexibility of the full-time RV lifestyle means that you will be able to come back and see these people again. You are bound to travel back through your own community many times to visit friends and family. You often do not realize how many people have impacted your life in a community until you leave it. Selling your home for any reason is hard. There are many memories in your home and it is difficult to move out. You also spent half of your life purchasing your home as every other American does. Just remember to focus on why you are leaving and that the full-time RV lifestyle means you will have a new home that can go with you wherever you want.

Taking on the full-time RV lifestyle also means that you will have to liberate yourself from all of your personal belongings. The best way to deal with the emotions of leaving stuff behind or getting rid of it all together is making several different piles. Make piles of stuff that you can take with you, make a pile of stuff that you would like to store, and make a pile of stuff that you need to throw away. Consider taking your throw away pile to the local Goodwill or Salvation Army. This will let you have the feeling that somebody else will enjoy those belongings more than you would and you are not being wasteful. Women tend to have a harder time leaving their belongings behind. If you have special collections of items, consider giving them to friends and family for display purposes in their home and for safekeeping.

Leaving a traditional lifestyle is difficult because there are so many unknowns. You will begin to have second thoughts and fears but you will have to remain strong and focused. The fear of the unknown is normal, but remember that you are going to be much happier when you are able to hit the road and live a new life.

Building support from your family may also be difficult. Some family may be confused as to why you would want to live in an RV, but other family will make sure that you plan to visit them. You can help build support from your family by telling them this is your dream and this is what will make you happy. They will appreciate that and support you in your decision. So, off you go, it's time to hit the road.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you are a business owner get listed at Best Finance Site, part of Localwin Network.
