Dear Dr. Keane, I allowed myself to be so positive about a potential job situation and started to think about what I'd be able to do if I got the position when it became available to apply for, but now it’s all gone into just a re-organisation of staff in a different grade to me. I do know that it isn’t anything against me. I always do this, promise myself not to get my hopes up, and then on this occasion I did
. I no I really shouldn't because I know the lesson in doing that. I hadn't got my hopes up for awhile, but then decided why not. Then it all led to such deep disappointment. I should have known that it would from past experience. For quite some time I actually stopped getting my hopes up about anything because that was easier to deal with any disappointment, so as I said, should have remembered that lesson. I know that it is nothing to do with my work or anything, it’s just that I was thinking again about the future, which, in my experience is rarely good because the disappointment when it comes hits a lot harder. I know I was never guaranteed the position anyway, but with the thought of the prospect at a chance at it, well, I started to think why not as I hadn’t expected it to filled in the way that it will be. I know I am lucky that when my position is no-longer to still have one my jobs. I really am trying to find some positives in all of this, really I am.
The behaviour technique with the child has worked well as there are positive marked changes in his behaviour. Speaking of boys I hope that your son’s home is habitable again after the flooding of last year that you told me about. That was silly in my previous post asking about if you had boys, or something like that, so sorry that I momentarily forgot for some reason… Hope you are having a good week. Call the Midwife started here for it’s second season. It’s looking good!
