Well some may know this but to those who do not know i started college over the summer and im majoring in psychology to become a counselor for women and children. Since i was younger i wanted to either be a social worker or teacher. I love helping others and being around children as well. So i figured a teacher and social worker would be the best career choices for me.....
Well since i was younger i always denied the fact that i was abused. I didn't want to admit to myself or anyone that i was abused so thinking about helping others shouldn't bother me. Well in ways i was wrong. Since i started speaking out last year even though i didn't start school until the summer and i spoke out in the beginning of the year, i felt that me becoming a counselor wouldn't be a good idea. How can i be a counselor and help others if i haven't received counseling myself? I wouldn't know what process i would have to go through to help the person. So in my mind i thought that i wouldn't make a good counselor. It wasnt until i started my blog and talking about my abuse and being able to relate to others that i realized that i can be a counselor and its my passion and calling. I realized that i can help people especially those who been through what we all suffered.
I felt like i wasnt meant to be a counselor but as i show my blog grow and even my twitter grow with other survivors, i knew i was meant to help others. I already do it through my blog. I am no longer afraid to achieve my goal as a counselor and i know i will be a great one because i have experiences that i can relate to my clients. And i know i will continue to get my healing by helping others and pursuing my passion.
I WILL BE A COUNSELOR AND I KNOW I WILL HELP OTHERS THROUGH THEIR JOURNEY AND HEALING. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. WE CAN GET THROUGH TOGETHER.
