10 Ways to Deal With Uncertain Future Anxiety

Over the past five years, I have gone through so many transitions, and many periods of time when I had no idea what was next.  This episode of uncertainty is a little more extreme than the others, and I thought it would be good to come up with a real plan for handling my Uncertain Future Anxiety (UFA.) 1.  Recall past experiences of UFA, not knowing how things would turn out, and review the ways in which everything really did turn out OK. ...more

I always love hearing from other expats, and their experiences generally prove that it turns out ...more

It's the 3 cardboard boxes my mom gave me from my childhood home that I stacked neatly in the kitchen, beside the stove, thinking that they will drive me crazy being there so that will mo...more
