This will be the last time I ever bother you, with my silly insecurities. I realize that I have a lot of options to teach abroad, but I had to dig down deep to realize my motivation for not leaving yet. It is most definitely fear; fear of the unknown and even more so the fear that it will be a mistake; and also I fear I won't be a good teacher. I FEEL LIKE A BIG CHICKEN! And I also feel stupid for this reason. It has resulted in me passing up some neat offers. This was something I had to address. I have offers, right now, but I realize this is any underpinning why I have not left yet. Something I had to address. I just want to go, start my own life and adventure, and maybe get to studying and training again. I only have one question. How did you get over your fear of the unknown, and not being a good enough teacher or whatever, and find the courage to go?
