"I would recommend Highway because it changed my life. I would recommend Highway to my friends because I got something out of it, namely a better understanding of myself and a greater sense of comfort in my future."
“A consistent place where I could stop and reflect on what was happening. I spent so much time supporting other people I didn’t make time for myself. Highway really gave me the space for processing what I needed to.”
"My mindset has just changed since Highway. I used to be really affected by external factors like what society says, what my friends say, what my parents say. But I know myself a lot better to the point where those external factors don’t impact me as much as they used to. I have just found peace within myself."
Start a new chapter in your life. Stop carrying the heavy stories in your life that hold you back and focus on what you want rather than what you don't want for yourself.
We found that people who focused on the "why" of life found more clarity in uncovering the "how" and "what" more easily. They were also more confident and happier with their life.
To be able to uncover your own "why" requires the ability for you to connect to your inner beliefs and values. Through open conversations your Highway Youth Facilitator will artfully help you find your true voice and connect to your inner self. It is often harder to uncover this on our own. Sometimes others can see you better than you can see yourself. That is the power of authentic human connection.
Truth is, we’re social creatures. We need connection. When we feel heard, understood, and valued we feel connected to ourselves and to the world around us.
It can be hard to speak honestly about how you feel, causing you to overthink, feel restless and overwhelmed. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and be heard. Being able to talk freely and explore your life is what can give you clarity. Sometimes you don’t really know what you are thinking till you hear yourself talk. It’s okay - we’ve all been there. Stop now and find a way out of endless overthinking and needless worry. Start a Highway Journey today!
