So I am following the lead of another blog I follow. I have a few things that I would like to confess.
1. The volunteer work that I am involved with is frustrating me. Lack of cooperation from all parties is really getting on my nerves. I don't have a lot of time to play with people. If I call to talk to you about your case and every time your answering machine comes on after the first ring and you don't return my call I will stop calling. I have made that decision. I will try one more time tomorrow and that is it. The position is like a second job. I makes me question if I really want a career in this aspect of the Social Services field.
2. I have a coworker that has a mental illness. With my degree I have studied these illnesses and I have a good understanding of them. But, my patience and compassion is getting thin. This particular person was having, I guess, a mini breakdown yesterday and my supervisor let her take a two hour nap. What in the H E double hockey sticks is going on? Now mind you the office was not at all busy but, I still have a problem with this. So you know what I did. I prayed not only for her but for me.
3. I think I am scared of living by myself. Whew.... that is a major confession. I seriously want to purchase a home within the next year or so. But I don't want a nice home with only one person living there. I do NOT believe in cohabitation so even if I were in a serious relationship that would not be an option. Pray for me ya'll. I am too old to be feeling like this.
Which leads me to this:
4.I Do Not Want To Be Single. I have told my friends and family that I was OK with this status but I am not. I am tired of being strong and independent. I know I will always be those things but I am ready to let my guard down a little.
So here is the deal. My posts to come will focus on some of these issues. I praised someone for expressing herself and I want to thank her for her post. It encouraged me to share some things that I just didn't want to admit.
