I'm a caretaker. Just like it says in the title. That is what I am. There's a reason why people call me "Mother". It has nothing to do with the CIA. At all. Turns out.
I watch out for everyone. I can't help that. I can't stand seeing my friends upset or hurt because oddly enough, I physically feel their pain. I can't handle it when an employee is having a meltdown and everyone else is standing around with their mouths open, wondering what to do - I have to do something about it. I shed a tear when I see an animal that's been abused (humane society ads be damned!). I am very passionate about things that have nothing to do with me.
I want to make the world safer for my family, my friends, my friends' families, their pets (yes, cats included). I wish there was more I could do.
But I am one person. And I can only do so much.
So why am I in the position I'm in now?
I do not know.
I should be a counselor, a nurse, an EMT, a therapist.
I am only a massage therapist.
I am only a human resources robot.
But...I am a caretaker.
And I can't change that.
