“what, whats going to happen? “

“something incredible”

“incredible in a good way?”

“just let it happen ,open yourself up and trust me ,nothing up till now matters,when it happens you’ll know and you’ll never be the same”

“that’s kind of a terrifying thought”

Gently Smiling

“No it’s a wonderful thought,you need to be open to this new thing that’s going to come into your life ,and if you are in the grips of fear  it wont happen ,but if your not afraid you will reap the rewards and you will never be lonely or scared or wanting ever again…..Why are you so scared all the time ?Is it that you need people to respect you or look up to you but you think you r not worthy?Do you think your not good enough and so you hide in your shell so nothing can touch you?Is your ego that big a part of your life that it is always seeking approval?I know you your are always putting people down and blaming others for your predicaments,It’s a vicious circle Serena and I’m going to help you escape that circle of fear right now.
