My Thoughts on a New Counselor and My fears

Well I am trying out the new layout for blogger and it seems to be much nicer then the old one. I have been learning over the past couple of years that change can be a good thing. I have been going to see the same counselor for about 2 1/2 years. For reason, I do not know, he left and I was placed with a new counselor. My new counselor is now moving on to better things so once again I will get another new counselor. Through it all from one to the next I have learn that change can be a good thing. 

I use to hate change. I would stay at home and never do anything out or my norm. I have been getting better at not being afraid of change and learning to embrace it with a happy outlook. I have seen that each counselor had their own things to teach me and own knacks for getting to the point I am now. I am looking forward to this new counselor and what all she can help me with. I have already met her because she helps run the weekly group I go too.

 One day I may be able to walk out my front door with no fears at all, that day for me will be awesome. I look back on how I use to be. I could not even sit on my front porch with out being afraid. I can now walk out the door and down the street. I can get on a bus and go all over town. I can sit next to a stranger on the bus and not be afraid they will harm me. I still have those fears from time to time but they don't stop me like they use too. 

My growing faith in the Lord has helped me greatly. Knowing, in my heart,  that He always looks out for me has been a major part in over coming my fears.Each day is a new challenge and a challenge I am now learning I can over come.
