How do I get beyond my difficulty praying to Mary?

I’ve been Catholic for nearly 7 to 8 months, and I’m still very uncomfortable uplifting any name besides Gods’. Now, I don’t have a problem mentioning any saint’s name, but there’s just something about Mary that bothers me, and I don’t see her as worthy of the title we give her. Now, I’m not sure what to do, so I’m hoping maybe for a couple prayers in my direction, to guide me, or something along those lines. :slight_smile:
