Thursday was the last day of school for the year.
Thursday night was a presentation night at the school where students were rewarded for effort, performance, community service and the like.
Now, I have earlier talked about sometimes, my job can be frustrating and thankless to a certain extent.
Anyway, the night of the presentation, I had a student (who I’d seen a couple of times) thank me for helping them and prior to that, had a parent who said that treating their anxious child had made a big difference and that they child had become way more independent and less anxious.
It made me really happy.
I realised that I am willing to have 10 kids who don’t want to be in therapy and don’t see a problem if I can have the 2 or 3 that I make a difference with.
It makes all the work and all the effort so very worthwhile.
It makes me realise that I am in the right area.
And that I’m willing to put up with the downs every now and then if I can have a few ups. 🙂
Until next time,
