Well, I really enjoy taking care of animals and people. I have a strong nurturing side and I wish to pursue counseling.
What I want to create in my life is love, peace and joy. I want to give to others, I want to be free of the consistent self-doubts, fears and anxieties.
I want to be a person of love, selflessness, consistency, non defensive, vulnerable to love, trusting and assertive and confident.
I hope that helps.
What would your life look like if you focused totally on sharing your best self with others, no matter what their reaction would be? Do you need other people's acceptance and kindness in order for you to be who you want to be? It's an internal change for you to make. Once you make it, the external environment will catch up with you soon enough. Change into the person you want to be and the reality will follow your change.
If you have no idea where to start, describe in great detail who you want to be and roleplay this person. Tell yourself it's just a game and you're roleplaying the person you want to be. Put on that mask. People won't reject you, they'll reject the character you're playing. Soon enough the mask will meld with your face and you'll become who you want to be. And you will find that people aren't that bad after all, especially if you love them and love yourself
Best of luck!
