You can absord a new culture, become someone you always wished you could be, make your friends back home jealous of you alternative lifestyle and more importantly become more self reliant and at peace with life.
You know you’ve been living in Thailand too long when you have finally absorbed the culture to a point where your at peace and call you new lifestyle the norm.
It’s a extremely enriching experience, making long term plans for exploration, finding joy in the simpler things in life.
All that amazement you felt when you first arrived can disappear by the way side, but this isn’t a bad thing, dropping all the material pocessions you left behind, and becoming more about you, and not your things is an extremely liberating experience that Thailand will allow you to do.
Embrase it all!!
