Leaving Dharmsala with So much Work to be DONE??

I felt a calling to stay and help the Tibetan people, but I left. I did what I could volunteering teaching English for the few days that I was there, but there is much more work to be done. The Tibetans are in a critical time right now where they need all the help they can get. It was very selfish of me to leave when these people clearly and urgently need my help. My visa is up April 10 and every time I ask about extending it I get a different response.

It is not as simple as a process as I thought to be sponsored by a local NGO. Honestly, I have not properly looked into extending my visa because truthfully I want a break from India.
But truthfully these Tibetan people really need me. A human rights internship is available for 3 months and I have the most amazing family to stay with as well in a perfect paradise location. Opportunity and purpose clearly presented to me yet I keep moving. I do have some volunteer plans for Nepal so I am not that selfish, but I can come back in a couple months...Time will tell....
