Thanks to the people who reach out and encourage someone. I just want to give a “shout out” to my friend and kind soul Dr. Stephen LaDuque, who managed to encourage me during a time when I wondered why in the world I share my life story with the world. Believe it or not, I used to be an incredibly private person. When God asks you to become vulnerable in order to help others, though, it’s time to get over hangups. So, on a day when I’d rather not be known as the person trying to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness, an awesome reminder comes to keep on doing what I’m doing. Thanks, friend, and thanks to those out there who encourage others.
