SECRETS OF A SOCIAL WORKER

Find peace. Find happiness. Find yourself.

Seemingly Small

When we ask someone if they are okay
let us be kind
and authentic
and
compassionate

Not because we are supposed to
but because we are all struggling in some large or small way 
and we need each other to lean on

Do you ever notice when people say they’re okay
but they have sadness in their voice and pain in their eyes 
and you just know they feel alone

How many people think they have to feel that loneliness 
instead of asking for a listening ear 
because the thought of asking for help 
seems to be a more difficult task than living with the pain 
and what a tragedy that is

Let us be gentle with others
because we have no idea what our seemingly small acts of kindness 
are doing for those we didn’t know
had that much pain to bare

if being alone…

if being alone
can teach you anything
let it teach you 

how to be resilient
when you need it most 

how to move on
when there’s nothing left to wait for 

how to rely on yourself
because no one else is there 

how to accept that what’s meant for you 
won’t reach you while you’re waiting for something else 

how to be confident
standing out in a crowd 

how to accept yourself
without approval from those around you

how to let go
and wait to see what magic unfolds

but above all
let the loneliness teach you how to value yourself 

before handing yourself over 
to everyone else

And isn’t it wonderful…

Wouldn’t it feel better
If you just let go
Without worrying about pleasing everyone 
Or feel disappointed when you aren’t perfect 

Wouldn’t it feel better 
To smile when you’re proud 
And celebrate your successes 
Rather than remind yourself of your flaws 

Wouldn’t it feel better
To say what you think 
Be who you are 
And love everything you bring to this world 

And isn’t it wonderful 
That you can

Never Alone

You have the sun on your face and the wind at your back. You have sand between your fingers and grass under your toes. You have oxygen in your lungs and blood running through your veins. Whenever you feel lonely, call upon all that touches you to feel alive again. You are never alone.

It’ll be okay…

It’ll be okay, even if you….

  • Slept in too late 
  • Made a mistake 
  • Couldn’t focus at work 
  • Didn’t meet your goal
  • Feel tired 
  • Want to be sad 
  • Fear change 
  • Compare yourself to others 
  • Over analyze 
  • Said no 
  • Aren’t perfect 
  • Think life is hard 
  • Can’t let go 
  • Broke the rules 
  • Don’t know the answer 
  • Are angry 
  • Put yourself first 
  • Took a risk 

(it’s what makes you human)
