My life is just this, when people know what I do, yes they come and talk to me.Funny thing is:even if they do not know, they seem to be drawn to me.
It does get a little hard work....because I need time out too.
I was told I am very approachable, but I have days when I would just like to be alone.
Yes, council people is part of my job anyway, I trained in Pastoral Care, along with other disciplines.
Problem is: when you evaluate for them, they still want to go their own way? Ha! and the problems don't end.
I used to be a life coach/natural medicine practitioner, and was about to become a medical doctor. In a word, I was a counsellor. In my work, I need to get results through others - so yes I am seen as someone who helps someone else with their mindset.
I am a good listener, but not great. I start feeling the pain and distress others are feeling, which keeps me awake at nights and starts affecting me in other ways, so I'd rather not be the counselor. However, for the record, let me state that my sister has told me at more than one occasions that I always say the right thing!
