My son needs me and I need him. I feel the pull all day everyday. I know he is cared for to the best of the caregiver’s ability but not mine. There are things that need to get done that are not getting done. For this reason, I am leaving my job.
I’m not sure how I feel about this transition. I can rationalize the decision but I am not sure all of my reasons are true. I feel like I am doing the right thing (rationalization) and at the same time I feel that I have to sell myself and others on my decision.
I’m getting lots of questions from friends and family about my decision to leave. You’re leaving? Why? I give the reasons and most of what I get is good luck with that!
The flip side of the coin is that the students that I am working with have given me positive feedback on the job that I have done. I feel rewarded in that arena. My son is happy so I am happy.
I made the right decision.
