Blogs: Asia backpacking 2018
In January of 2018, I learned through the guidance of my therapist that I developed a preoccupied insecure attachment during my childhood. A new understanding of who I am and why I react the way I do in many situations. With my therapist's guidance, I was able begin the work on gaining a secure attachment, and within 4 months gained the strength needed in order to quit my job working for the family business and travel to SE Asia for six weeks in order to discover life with a different perspective, outside of the motions I lived in back at home.
For the curious, the blogs below will take you through that journey and what was going on in my head. As much as the sights and socializing was something I was looking forward to, the mental challenges and therefore development which was intertwined was the purpose of the trip. To keep gaining security in a world I unfortunately grew up to fear.
