At first, I thought all of this was a waste of time and dumb. I definitely did not want to be here. But I soon realized that I was not the only one having difficulties in their life. I learned that I am not a bad person for what I’ve done, but have learned from those decisions. The First Step Services counselors have helped me so much in realizing who I am and what I am capable of. I realized I have friends and family who love me and a good supports system. I would like to thank First Step and Katie Doyle in helping me realize this.
