Seminarian Peter Logsdon (2014)

LogsdonThe biggest struggle that I have encountered in the discernment of my vocation has been myself. I worry that I have not done things right, I look at others and wonder if they appear like they are on the right course and happier because they are doing something different or have progressed further than me.  I have tended to be very self-critical, but am working on looking to others for the feedback I need.
