It’s Not About You…

Because I’m Fabulous, wrote an amazing post that makes you think. I remember hearing years ago “Remember your child is a stranger that you are meeting for the first time the day that baby is born”. Putting labels and unrealistic expectations on your child is dangerous. I will never fully understand what it is like to be a transgendered, homosexual, bisexual, and etc. but I was taught by my amazing parents that everyone deserves respect, love, support, and human decency.

I remember being pregnant with my children, feeling as their gentle flutters progressed into full belly flops on my bladder and painful karate kicks against the backs of my ribs. Back then I had no clue what my children would be like; they were more like ideas than real people.

About Nicole Schryer

My mother engrained in me the benefits of the creative process combined with helping others. I am currently working as a Counselor and Art Therapist helping children ages 5-16 understand and gain control over their symptoms of their mental health diagnosis through Beech Brook. This is an amazing workplace that truly puts client’s needs first. I graduated from Ursuline College where I have learned how to be a professional through my internship experiences and now career. I previously have worked with adolescents in a residential setting. I enjoyed allowing these teens a safe space to share their feelings and emotions. My internship in a hospice setting was influential. I would love to work with this population somewhere down the line. This was my way of giving back. Hospice was amazing when I lost my mother six years ago due to colon cancer. I hope I will be able to offer support to the best of my abilities like my previous counselors, supervisors, and professors have helped me. View all posts by Nicole Schryer
