Weight finally gone (the work issue)

The work scenario.  I have finally after all this time got confirmation that its over, the mother has come to her senses it appears.  The child in question is living with a relative along with a sibling and by all accounts is getting a chance at some sort of normality.

Its been difficult, stressful, i have been monitored at work, our procedures with dealing with vunerable children has been given an overhaul, i feel in one way that i have had to 'prove' myself, that i am fit to do my job and i havent liked it....i know its all been implented to protect us (as staff) and to learn from mistakes.

There was a time, maybe a couple of years ago that i considered working for social services but i wasnt sure i would be able to deal on a full time basis with the emotional impact of handling sensitive situations, now i know i couldnt. 

I feel like a weight has been removed from my shoulders, it knocked me back, made me doubt myself and my decisions, i did at one point consider walking away from it all (the job) but i have had great support from fellow staff, parents of the pupils i have worked with and most of all the children, they have given me strength, and they have kept me going.

  2. Yay! I'm so glad it's over--you did the right thing and it would have been horribly unfair had there been a different outcome.

    I bet everything else in life will be that much better without the weight of this whole thing hanging over you.
