What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It has been a long time since I wrote an essay. I'll be honest
without being revealing. In return I expect you to be open minded
and patient. I will start with work. I work in a group home with
mentally handicaped adults. I have been doing this for a few years
now and wish I had been in the field all of my life. It is
thrilling and sometimes brings me to tears when I see my clients
grow and adjust to living an independent life. I have to be their
in a world that can be rude(staring at them in public) and
cruel(making remarks and laughing or just turning thier backs on
You shold know that my clients work and want to make their own
money and work with us in creating goals for themselves. I am not
trying to paint a rainbow in the sky. No such thing. There are
problems, pressures, and days when I cannot wait to leave. I must
live with the fact that there will be folks I and my coworkers
cannot help sometimes because we have not been able to be creative
enough to find a solution or the client is trapped in his or her
own pathology or just plain institutionalised. Taking care of
others has made me question my own priorites and helped me accept
my own limitations whild at the same time trying to grow to the
best of my ability. Sometimes that best is not goog enough for
clients, coworkers, managers and administrators but it is my best
and I will stand by it good bad or indiferent any day of the week.
Why? Because my guys have taught me character and not to give up. I
have learned from watching them how frustrating life can be on a
daily basis. Very few of them ever give up. They have taught me the
value or compassion and character. I work hard on both and still
have alot to learn. To me that is as it should be.
I relax by taking walks, driving, sitting in coffee houses or
bookstores, meditating, chanting with other Buddhists.And of course
a video. I am partial to independent films and movids that
challenge me and make me think. I LOVE TO LAUGH! That is how I cope
with stress and negativity.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empathising with others and listening. I pride myself on my
listening skills and constantly check with othrs for feedback on
I am someone who wears his heart on his sleve and not afraid to
show he is vunerable. I have stand alone spirit(I am not going to
follow the crowd or trade my dignity for popularity and creature
comfort. No I am not a monk life just works better for me when I am
true to myself and honest with others. Choosing places to eat and
coffeehouses. I love foof and I am not ashamed of that. Finding out
of the way places. There is allways something in the Hudson Valley
to se for me for the 1st time. Reaching out to others. I am a
people person and will allways give someone the benefit of a doubt.
However I am also good at moving on. Not being able to recognise
time for change and growth is stagnating and painful. The closest
thing to hell on earth I have seen in my lifetime.Being
affectionate, I am an incurable romantic. I am also affectionate
and sensitive to other's needs. Accepting critisisim as long as it
comes from a healthy place. If you ask me to think about it I will.
