Maybe It Is Time


I have cancelled my classes 3 days in a row.

That isn’t a good sign.

I’m considering my options, and speculating on retiring from teaching after a very, very long time.

Since I was 20 years old, as a matter of fact.

I am much older than that, and am getting worn out.

I looked over my enrollment, and realized that 95% percent of my clientele are those who have come to me for therapy.




Severe depression.



I love these clients, but I am losing energy.

It will break their hearts if I retire, but they will survive – I’m sure.

I am trying, very hard, to re-invent my perspective, in order to continue.

On the other hand, the idea of retiring is looking more inviting every day.

I wish I knew another therapist, who has been able to survive this type of work – and keep a positive attitude long enough to continue without breaking.

We’re looking at heading for the desert for a few days, but I’m not sure if that’s going to help.

Maybe it’s time to stop, tho.

Maybe it is time.
