This is a very well written piece. It is extremely difficult to describe peanut butter to an alien from the planet Zabar. If you’ve never experienced it, it is difficult to understand it. I remember going through a similar fear experience my first day as a therapist. Would I be able to deal with another’s pain and fear and his or her worst life experiences? Had I ever truly dealt with mine?
It was a morning similar to yours with the added question of professional integrity and skill. I just questioned myself until I arrived my office. Then I was sure of myself and I did my job and I hope I helped.
