Recently a very close friend told me the best way to handle your problems is to face them head on and be honest and up front about it. That is exactly what I have done...I trusted her and felt the weight being lifted just by those facts alone.
The second part, which is my favorite part, she told me if I did this new opportunities would come my way...and she was right! New doors are opening for me and I am very excited!
So, I guess the moral of my story is....have faith in all aspects of your life but ecspecially yourself!
