Why did you become a peer mentor? To inspire others whom had an accident in their lifetime or had to experience some life changing event that affected their physical, mental, or psychological well-being. Letting them know that life can/will be beautiful for them at their time in Life! Every time we focus on the negative moments in Our life, the more that would bring us down. Let others know that staying positive is the best way to stay alive! Our attitude is what matters the most in life! Also letting them know, not to compare yourself to another; we all are Gods Beautiful Sons/Daughters. Also help that person find their purpose in life, why God kept Us living for another day.
