This revelation had the feeling of a jigsaw puzzle piece fitting into place. Remember, I only realized I had an anxiety disorder at age 40. Looking back into my 20s is like watching a movie where I, the viewer, know why the main character is making the choices they are even if they don’t.
I didn’t know why, but I trusted him.
Teachers represent a vision of so much more than the subjects they teach. They are a connection to a future of thought we can barely envision at the time.
For all of you overthinkers, tell me, did your favorite teachers help you find a place to park your active minds? I’d love to hear more. Email me back and let me know what connected you to these important people over the years.
With deep gratitude to my teachers along the way,
