26yr Old Guy No Idea Where He's Going

I have had a good life so far in the UK - loving mother, worked hard at school, been to uni and got a BA, and an MA. When I finished that I had no idea what to do, so I stayed at uni another year and did teacher training (PGCE). I have since been a teacher for 2 and a half years and quite enjoy it. For most of those 2 and a half years was in a lovely relationship with a wonderful woman. I have just ended things with us as I am always feeling that there is something else I should be doing, and, unfortunately, with someone else...

I feel horrible about that but feel it is the right choice. The trouble is, I want out. Of my job, my area (Essex) and possibly the UK. But I don't know what to do - where to go. I am considering Japan to teach English, or maybe the continent somewhere (Germany/Holland).

I have no idea what i should do but feel there is something out there I am supposed to be doing... Anyone else have any thoughts on my predicament?

Take your time to look and think about Japan. A bit of research would be great, to think things through..Go if you want! You only go around once so make it worth something. Good luck. It sounds perfect..

Good for you for having the courage to leave the relationship if it wasn't right for you. Just write a list of what you enjoy doing and come up with 2 or 3 options and then choose one and follow it through. After all whats the worst that could happen? You could end up living your dream, if not change things again until you find your happiness. Good luck to you! Life is a great adventure, live your life my friend!
