This week has been a hard slog at work. The type of week that makes you question your career choices and your ability to do or cope with the job.
There are a number of professions that get to see people at their best and worse – police, nurses, teachers – to name a few. Those who work in the triage areas of these fields often cop the brunt of the bad & not so much of the good. We see people pushed to their limits physically and mentally who are so overwhelmed by their situation that they have little regard for those trying to help them.
When constantly faced with this it is very easy to become focused on the bad and allow it to overwhelm you. So I want to say a huge thank you to the people at work (students & colleagues) and at marking who reminded me of the good – in me, in what I do and in others.
