It's true I don't loose much sleep these days because of school-related worries. But that hasn't always been the case.... When I started this job in 1989, I dreamt about the kids and their sad stories all night long. Like a heavy weight on my heart, I dragged the burden of their lives with me, asleep and awake.
Experience over time lessens the stress, and I have had to learn to meditate to settle myself. For me, prayer is part of the solution,too. Here is a portion of a prayer/poem I found at this wonderful site:
It is night after a long day.
What has been done has been done;
what has not been done has not been done;
let it be.
My intern is feeling the stress (how could she not?) I pray she soon finds the peace of "let it be".
