Honestly, being a social worker makes me feel privileged – because people are entrusting me with some of the deepest, most personal, darkest moments of their lives. I get to hold these moments with them, to reflect, to realise how it shaped them into the people they are today…both the good and the bad.

So when I saw this picture, I knew that I had to share it. It is so true. We all (or most at least) have a somewhat difficult past. It’s something we grow and learn from…but honestly, some people needed to have someone to help them, but didn’t.

So as social workers (and anyone who works with people on such a personal level), it’s important for us to realise our role in helping clients process their past, and get through it. And for professionals working with children, the role becomes even more important.

So kudos to you! And keep on fighting the good fight!
