Hi Tom,

Thank you for writing this! It reminded me so much of my own mindset while living and teaching in South Korea a few years ago. I had a very similar experience of being decidedly unhappy while there, and now, having had some space and learning how to better handle/understand my mind since then has made all the difference! Now I see it as a great learning experience. There are some great insights in here! Thanks!
