This year I transitioned from teaching to a counselor type of position guiding students with post-grad plans. I absolutely love the job and am so happy. The issue is I have constant anxiety that the position will be eliminated at some point with budget cuts (at times in the past it has been on the chopping block though never cut). If it ever got cut, I could easily go back to being a classroom teacher but I don’t want to do that. Then I start spiraling with what will I do type questions. I don’t know how to manage my thoughts around this. I have no evidence for the position getting cut, and I don’t want to waste time feeling anxious when I can just focus on enjoying my job. Nevertheless, it is still something that creates a lot of anxiety for me. Thoughts?
