Back on the Therapy Couch

I have been thinking a lot about the youth in Brooks recently. This is probably due to the fact that this past Sunday I was called to be the Young Men’s President in our Ward and I also work with children and youth as a career. I remember what it was like for me when I was an adolescent. It was a time of puberty, bullies and trying to figure out who I was and what I stood for. I grew up in B.C. and there were not a lot of youth that shared my religious beliefs in my home town. It was really tough at times to go to school knowing I was going to be persecuted because of what I believed the kind of clothes I wore and the fact I had glasses and looked like a “nerd.” The Fact is, I still dress the same and believe the same things. I sill wear glasses and look like a nerd but I’m Ok with that. I am who I am and that’s how God made me. However, I can sometimes be my own worst enemy.
Thanks for the session
