Travelling is best when safety and security is there. As you are new to this, I advise you to take baby steps. Visit places near your city with your friends. If you like it then only widen your horizons slowly and steadily. All the best.
As you are new to this i would suggest you to firstly explore the places in your range of present place and when you are comfortable then explore places outside of your comfort zone.
You can take help from the posts and travellers on this forum. Enjoy travelling!!!
From my personal experience, I would say take a giant leap of faith and plan a destination that you wouldn't usually dare(an Himalayan Trek, Northeast backpacking, a week in Rajasthan,etc) as your first journey!
After finishing such a daring experience you will be more open to travelling, it will immensely boost your confidence and inspire you to travel more! The most challenging step in travelling is to preparing your mind for the unexpected! Be always aware that many things/itinerary may not turnout as planned. So never be disappointed, and enjoy your journey!
