Making a difference

Being a social worker with a mental health disorder is challenging yet rewarding as i get it. I’m anxious to be on my own in this new role I’ve taken on yet I’m worried it will take a toll on me. This is where self care domes into play. Yet i think I’m not very good at self care. I’m trying to figure out if I’m just being hard on myself or if that’s true. I just don’t know.

I do think i make a difference in people’s lives. I have seen it in my previous job yet was it enough? I know it needs to be. I just feel like I’m on the brink of something cathartic but i don’t know what.

One thought on “Making a difference

  1. Social work of most kinds is BRAVE. It’s so difficult to see people at their worst all the time, especially if you struggle with your own issues; you may grow to feel that’s all the world has to offer. But I know that you will continue leading a fulfilling, beautiful career helping people in the exact ways you wish you were helped. 🙂
