Returning home as an adult

For the first time in a very long time, I will be going home (Thailand) to visit my family alone. Normally, I bring my kids and husband with me, so it’s not too hard to remember that I have other roles than being a daughter (I left at age 12 to come study in the US).

I am determined to be an adult this time and enjoy my family without reverting back to being/ feeling like a 12 year old.

Obviously, I have some anxiety about this – hence this note to you!

Do I do a model? What happens when I find myself being an emotional child when I am back with them? It will be uncomfortable, I know. How do I gain confidence ahead of time?
