Changing Jobs - Perspective and Exposure Concept
So this new position has been pretty easy. The teachers are not intimidating, nor are the students. Everything is just a big step down from what I was used to and that makes it seem easy. I remember feeling the opposite way when I moved from a small school to the big school. Just pulling into the parking lot and seeing how many cars were there was enough to increase your heart rate.
I think this concept applies to all parts of life. Someone called it exposure therapy. Basically you expose yourself to a stressful environment until you become used to it and it no longer becomes stressful. Once you overcome that obstacle, everything else seems much easier.
