This is only part of my story.
In August 2012, I was standing outside a church. It was very difficult (or so I thought at least) to just walk in and then someone who had exited the building saw me standing around and said I could go in.
I walked up the stairs, turned around, and thought something close to "It's either this or go back to doing nothing."
Then I walked in.
People welcomed me, and it was one of the best things ever done in my life. (There are tears in my eyes upon writing that.) It wasn't as easy as it sounds either, because it took all I had to just walk into that building.
