Being a social worker means …

you will never be bored
you will always be frustrated
you will be surrounded by challenges
so much to do and so little time
you will carry immense responsibility
and very little authority
you will step into people’s lives
and you will make a difference
some will bless you
some will curse you
you will see people at their worst
and their best
you will never cease to be amazed
at people’s capacity for
love, courage, and endurance
you will see life begin
and end
you will experience resounding triumphs
and devastating failures
you will cry a lot
you will laugh a lot
you will know what is it to be human
and to be humane
