Hello everyone, I'm curious to hear from current and/or past searchers regarding their experience. In particular, I'm curious to know:

1. What were your largest fears prior to searching?
2. How did you overcome the above fears? (e.g. speaking to other searchers, soul-searching, etc.)
3. What made you take the plunge? In other words, at what point did you realize that this was something you HAD to do (rather than just toying with the idea), and you didn't look back? What was your immediate next step once officially decided?

I'm very excited to hear from anyone willing to share their emotional journey with us!
