This kid (me) looks happy, and I was when at home, but I was entirely insecure. I was made fun of because of those lil' chiclet teeth that I couldn't hide. Couldn't talk quite right either (horhee=horse) due to them at the time. Kids would mimic chipmunks around me when at school. Adults thought it was cute to tell me I "Looked like a little bunny rabbit" but I was mortified. I wanted to look like me, not a stinkin rabbit! The adults meant no harm I am sure, but I remember how I felt about it like it was yesterday. I felt small. I am being vulnerable now & sharing something I never have because I know some of you feel insecure & small sometimes too. It's ok.

The world is a harsh place sometimes. I am communicating this to empower you so you're aware you have at least one ally looking out for you, who understands you. After a lot of years in the practice of reminding myself that "no matter how I look I have something positive to offer", I am a confident man. If you're feeling like you're nothing, remember you're actually really valuable too.

I'm always here to help. Message me any time. I'll answer all of you, it just takes a while, please be patient with me. In the mean time you can now check out the Relief & Resource Center for some of the topics that have been requested I discuss.
