Clinical Psychology 40 years experience
We are all different: but when we judge that a bad or wrong it creates problems. Younger folks today are much more accepting of individual differences than in the past. Diversity programs are helping. A clinical psychologist can help you sort this out and boost self-esteem. Be who you are and be that well. Peace and good health.
