Ms. Zhou focuses on mental and psychological counseling for woman in rural areas. In this article, Ms. Zhou tells us about her future travel plans to counsel people in many provinces. Her schedule is packed for the rest of the year.
I have fought against mosquitoes for the third time and could hardly sleep last night. I woke up this morning feeling extremely uncomfortable. I picked up the phone from Yang Yi and then chatted with Wang Jun through QQ. I felt pleased and full of energy when we ended our conversation at around 12:30 pm.
It was funds and the trust of Mr. and Mrs. Zhao and patient of staff that have encouraged me. Both Wang Jun and I said, “It is great to do something meaningful.”
We planned the time to Sichuan 2 months ago. But something unexpected happened before I left. My sister and sister-in-law bot had an operation at the same day. My sister lived alone outside but no one looked after her.
The entire burden was on my husband’s shoulder once I left. But there were 200 women waiting for me.
Anyway, I came to Sichuan according my schedule, but seeing the need and sincerity on their faces, all the complaining had disappeared. They desired for knowledge and changes. I planned activities on Children’s Day. If the activities turn out to be successful, then they could be promoted to any non-profit organizations all over the country.
With the support of Mr. Zhao, I did my work without any worries. Non-profit organizations, communities, and corporations praised my experience and plans. My work schedule has been arranged until the end of the year.
Finishing the activities, I was going to practice my plans in Henan Province. I think these activities could be helpful in many ways—such as children education, couple relationship, interpersonal relationship, mental health, and childbearing.
What I wish to say the most to Mr and Mrs. Zhao was, "Thanks for your trust."
In fact, we just met for the first time and had built a trusting relationship that makes everything so much more possible. To the end of the year, I will travel to the north-west district and several inland cities. I hope our work will satisfy Mr. Zhao and our team.
In addition that, thank my husband for his great support.
