Half of 2014 has gone by, and it is now June already!
It has been a crazy ride thus far… as I transited into my second job within the social services industry. The change in environment, is a welcome change, and to be honest, still taking a bit of time to adjust to it…
Culture shock is an understatement, because I now get to see what truly social work is all about. Knowledge and skills empower a worker, however, it is the human touch between the social worker and client, that working relationship and rapport building make or break a case.
Although it may seem easy to say, the action part is always the toughest, and yet the most rewarding.
Stories of the human life warm the cockles of my heart, even though it may be heart wrenching. Yet, the beauty of it is the strength to persevere, even if the situation seems dire.
I would love to go on and on, however, I shall have to catch my much needed rest.
*chiong-ing new projects is never easy, yet I relish the challenge, even if its a steep mountain to climb
