The Hazards of Emotion Ties at Work

I’d been told, again and again, the hazards of being emotionally and psychologically linked to your work…

I had tried my best to be detached for the past decade…

I had succeeded… up till now.

How do one get emotionally detached and psychologically unattached when one is a full time fund raiser?

I help to raise funds for leukemia children. If you only know all the sad stories, I’m sure you will want to help to raise funds too.

That is the reason and motivation that sends me out into the streets to stop as many people as possible, to ask them for donations. And boy! What a challenge!

Yet, the emotions and psychological ties just wouldn’t allow me to give up. Because those kids are waiting to be healed and to grow up into adulthood… They are my kids…

Will You Go Out of Your Way for Charity?

Well, will you?

Today is my third day as a fundraiser, representing the leukemia children.

I was on my feet for three whole days already. Amazing…

Yesterday I developed at least two blisters on each of my feet. And today I’m again out there, raising funds… Limping and pain is temporarily forgotten while I was out there working hard to raise funds.

Now that I’m home, all my pain and aches came running in, in full force. There are blisters on my soles and I can’t walk properly, even in the comfort of my own home. My legs are super aching. So is my back and shoulders…

But these pains and aches are nothing compared to those the poor leukemia children suffer…

And the best comfort is receiving a small box of chocolates; an appreciation by the charity organisation for my hard work and being called their hero… It really warms the heart…

… and it really motivated me to Google search “How to get rid of blisters fast”, so I can be in a better condition to raise more funds tomorrow!

If you know of any way to get rid of blisters fast, please let me know. The children and I will be eternally grateful… Thank you!
