Good morning. It's a cool, sunny Friday morning here in the Big Apple. And...it's a Friday of a three day weekend. Hip, hip, hooray!!! But, I've even better news today. Hubby starts work on the 22nd. What a relief in so many ways. Not only were we well on our way to being financially strapped, but although he tries to deny it, I can feel that he's not only been feeling bored and frustration, but also depression has been setting in. It's hard after having worked for so long, and then to lose your job because you were defending yourself against a client who was larger than you, exhibiting violent behaviors, and struck you in the face. But, unfortunately, that's how it is. I'm scheduled for some training here...on restraining clients who have become violent and agitated. Yeah, right!!! I'm 62 years old, soon to be 63. I can see myself now restraining some 250 pound male who is ready to explode.
Yesterday, I was asked for the URL for the empath test. For those who wish to take the test, here it is: What Empathic Type Are You
I would be interested in learning how you score.
To be honest, I don't really know how accurate the test is because I am still learning myself. I am actually not even sure if I am an empath despite my test results which can be found at the bottom of the blog.
I would like to end today with this quote by Helen Keller which says it all.
"We do not see things as they are. We see things as WE are."
