Today was my second day at my new job....So far I love it, and am excited to get my own caseload and be on my own. For now though I am shadowing other employees and just familiarizing myself with the job and all it involves. I am feeling a little overwhelmed, but think that's only because it's so new to me.

The last two days have opened my eyes to what life is really like, and at the risk of sounding like a cliche, I have realized how easy I have it.

I have met many different people the last two days; people who live in poverty, people who have lived through domestic violence, drug addiction, and other things I have only read about.

It makes me think about me and my problems....granted my M problems are real.....but it makes everything else I have been thinking about and stressing about seem so superficial and stupid....I don't mean the hurt I have caused my BH....that is real, and something I know I need to deal with..I mean all the stupid shit and the selfish thoughts I had that led me to my A....the fact that when i was pouting and whining about my BH not paying enough attention to me or spending enough time with me, when there are people who don't know how they will feed their children, how to get shelter,or how to get out of an abusive relationship.

I guess it is just helping me see things in a different way, and makes me appreciate my life so much more than what I have been doing.

Nice post. The view out the front windshield is a lot better than the rear view mirror!
