Last night I did my first official shift as a Youthline counsellor. I have to admit that I was pretty nervous going into it. Training aside, the responsibility seems quite daunting at times. To be honest though, I was more nervous about doing something I hadn’t done before – like first-day-at-school nerves, than actually taking a call.
As it turns out, it was fantastic! It really is true what they say… helping other people really does make you feel good.
