Hi PC, welcome
In terms of other people, they aren't mind readers. We often expect them to notice we aren't 100% well or energetic. There's a saying "we have to carry our own cross" meaning we are alone in life to a large extent so we should carry our own burden.
It is fine to have a large goal like travelling but if it is too far into the future you will indeed feel you are not succeeding. Better to be more realistic and have a 6 month goal, 2 year, 5 year, 10 year goals. There are some activities that you can afford that will feel like you are enjoying life.
Beyondblue topic inexpensive recovery idea- camping
If you enjoy that concept of getting back to nature on a budget then download Wikicamps and enjoy free camping anywhere, if you have transport.
However, travel- having a 5 year plan to go spend all that hard earned money at a young age isn't ideal. I know everyone boasts about their trek through Africa and it is the done thing now, even my daughter is planning to go to Europe this year instead of putting their hard earned money into a house deposit, I'm sorry to disagree here, people now do the reverse....I think its more logical to travel in older age and find financial security when young in buying your own home. Lets agree to disagree.
