Having to take medical retirement from teaching, I was excited to take a part-time job at the local library. I enjoy helping and interacting with people. I believed it was blessing from God when a part-time library position became available. It provided an opportunity for me to stay active and help people without compromising my weakened immune system. Now, I am feeling over-whelmed and defeated. The harder I work and try to adapt the more attacks, criticism and complaints are levied against me. I try to stay spiritually strong, but I knew I needed prayer, when I started feeling over whelmed and felt like maybe the critiques are right. I am useless in the world and have no purpose. Maybe, I have fooled myself and thought I was being helpful and good worker. Maybe, I have no longer have purpose or place. I wanted a peaceful, calm work environment where everyone is kind, respectful, work cooperatively.
