My mother's generation, propelled by the scars of my grandmother's generation, raised their daughters to feel like they could do anything. I'm starting to believe that girls my age misconstrued anything to mean everything.

I believe that the pain and confusion of the world is now so vivid and unavoidable that we have no choice but to acknowledge it. Only by staring directly at the confusion -- examining it and absorbing its reality -- will our species discover a way forward.

Your change initiates from you. You may seek a professional to help you, yet you are the pilot and the counselor is the copilot. You guide the work, while your supporter uses his or her training and skills to jump-start or turbo boost your own efforts. Keep aware that you are in the driver's seat.
