I know the journey that lies ahead of me is not going to be easy but I so much welcome this challenge in my life...why did I wait so long. I'm going to let myself be me and be happy, no more hiding behind a wall...I'm going to knock this wall down.

DO IT, Zoebear! Knock that wall down! it is hard to talk about - especially to tell someone for the first time. but is is SO worth it. it will make a huge difference. Yes - there will be lots of hard work in the future - but you can do it. and we are here to help back you up.

We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
