Do you enjoy your job?
I work with a company that provides care and compassion for individuals who need help. Most of the time, I work with people who are older and may not be able to do things that they used to do. This has opened my eyes in so many ways to the possibilities and scariness of getting older. This job has also provided me the opportunity of meeting new people. I have realized that working with people is something that I want to do. The people I have met, have impacted me in some way and I appreciate the experiences they have given me. I have met:
A woman more intellectual than anyone I have ever met
A man who has struggled most of his life and is still struggling today
A man who is still living life at a ripe old age
A woman who had a great life and slowly went on to the next one
A woman who I look forward to seeing throughout the week
As a caregiver we are supposed to get to know our clients and interact with them. You have a fear of getting too personal because one it's a business and two, they may not be around for much longer. This is something I have to balance but I get to know the clients and listen and enjoy what they have to say. They have taught me many things about life and how to live it and I hope I can take that knowledge and do just that. Live life.
