In my line of work I have met a lot of really kind, loving, wonderful people. I’ve been so blessed that the majority of the people I’ve come across fit that description. However, yesterday I found myself talking to Lulu about my vocation. I begged her to never do the kind of work that I do. It was so strange for me to hear myself saying this for several reasons but the biggest one is that I love what I do!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job and I know that my job is ONE of the reasons that God put me on this planet. There are so many joyous and beautiful moments in my line of work but there are also seasons of terrible sadness and downright cruelty. It’s not that the bad times outweigh the good times, it’s just that the low moments are so lonely and so soul wrenching that I wouldn’t wish them upon anyone, especially someone that I love so deeply.
The emotions that I’ve felt in the past 10 years of working in this area, are emotions that no one should ever have to feel. The actions that I’ve suffered should never have to be endured. The sadness that I’ve felt shouldn’t even exist.
Again, I love my profession; I just wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
