In my mind you are already a hero, and I hope that you will continue to post on your progress. You inspire me to go out and do the same as you because I want to become a counselor
Don't Give up.......please

"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one."

A personal Favourite
"Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here."
~ Marianne Williamson
And one more hard hitting one (read it carefully and meditate on it.)
"I will not die an un-lived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."
~ Dawna Markova
