Before I moved to Thailand to teach English, I liked to think I was a go-with-the-flow type of person, but in reality, I was too anxious to not have a plan. I always mapped out how I was going to reach my goals and how I was going to live my life. Whether that was a travel goal, a career goal, a financial goal, etc., I knew what was going on at all times and what the next step was. I didn’t have the exciting kind of anxious that some thrill-seekers may experience. I had the nervous ‘something could go wrong’ or ‘I wouldn’t be prepared’ type of anxiety and it started to become debilitating. When I decided I was going to Teach in Thailand, I knew I either needed to face this head on, or I wouldn’t survive.
