North Dakota is known for the Badlands. They’re rugged mountains that are quite beautiful, and a bit symbolic of life itself. Even the most rugged people can have some beauty in them, and sometimes, the most rugged have the biggest hearts. In order to soften yourself, it may be worth it to talk to a counselor about your needs. Speak to a North Dakota-based counselor and see what they can do for you.
