Had a job interview today, the work consists of helping folks with developmental issues as a direct care professional. Sounds fancy, but it's just helping people. I've never done this exact type of work before, I was a case manager at a rehab facility that housed veterans with societal issues, but for the most part they took care of themselves, this will be a lot more hands on, kind of scary. Was asked why they should hire me, it took me a second, not used to selling myself, but I said that I wanted to be part of something outside of myself. Not sure if that was the correct answer, but it was an honest one. I'm in my head so much that I think that helping to take care of others will center me, bringing out the better part of me that has been emerging over the last five years. I know it's corny, but it's my truth. I am fairly isolated, people scare me, it takes me awhile to warm up. In this job (if I get it) I will have the opportunity to be more open and trusting. Just scared that I won't do well. Sorry this is so long.

As always thank you for letting me post.

It’s only in service to others that we discover who we truly are. I think this is a wonderful new adventure for you. Your life experience will greatly help these folks.
