Rhode Island may be small, but it has big attractions, such as its beautiful shorelines. In life, you can sometimes feel small and insignificant. However, you are destined for great things. All you have to do is find your purpose. 

A counselor can help you find your purpose and allow you stand among the crowd despite your size.
