Don’t Compare Experience. Respect Yourself
Being a newbie in liveaboard full of professionals and experienced adventurer, it’s easy to fall into the trap and start comparing yourself with the other. Don’t spoil your holiday mood by letting insecurities to slip in. If other people can see a mating dragon on their last trip while you barely see one, so what? What’s the matter if you don’t have the chance to swim with white tip sharks during this time while other divers did it a year ago? Being in such cool place like Komodo is already a blessing as itself. It doesn’t get less special just because you don’t experience what others did/
It’s Okay to Make Space for Yourself

Feel free to slip away and excuse yourself for early retreat to the cabin or one of your favorite spot in the boat with a book and good music. It’s your hard-earned holiday, after all!
