I grew up in a small community. In lots of ways it can be safe and rewarding.
My friends and I could play outside way after dark, and ride our bicycles all over town without any worries.
I’m still a small town girl. I still live in a small community. It’s perfect for us.
But there are some cons to living in a small town. Pretty much everyone knows someone who knows you and/or your parents. So if you do something that they know your parents wouldn’t agree with, they feel it their civil duty to inform said parties.
In a nutshell, that means you get in trouble and everyone in town will know about it by sun down. The whole school will know by 8:30 a.m. tomorrow morning.
It’s the bittersweet.
Can’t beat small town living as far as neighborly kindness, but those same people who watched you grow up seem to never forget things you did. Hence it becomes very difficult to live down your mistakes in a small town.
But I want to encourage you to take a step -in the direction of change.
You CAN become the “Talk of the Town!” A GOOD talk of the town!
Let them see a new man walking down that sidewalk! Let them see a new woman walking into that little Mom and Pop store! Let them see a new contagious smile on your face!
You’re going to finally put things behind you and make some changes that your whole community is going to sit up and take notice of. Family changes. Life changes. Spiritual changes. Career changes. Behavioral changes.
I firmly believe that people can change. And I firmly believe God helps people to make those changes. No one can do it like God can. Just ask me, I’ll tell you all about it! 😉
You can bury an old reputation! And you do it by building a new one -one small change at a time.
Become the man or woman who overcame their obstacles. The man or woman whom everyone thought would never “become” anyone!
You can do it and I would love to help you!
I have several tools in my counseling bag and I’m confident one of them is a perfect tool for you!
From correcting Temperament weaknesses to defining compulsive behaviors to ditching depression to just needing a good emotional/spiritual shot in the arm…it can happen!
Maybe it’s time to be “The Talk of the Town!”
