Recently I have been asked why I am choosing to be a clinicial psychologist. Why would I want to deal with broken and depressed people all the time? What if you get a weirdo who eats his couch?
I have prayed many nights for my calling making sure this is what God wants me to do. Some days I don’t even think I am strong enough to deal with it, but time and time again God says “Anna just trust me, you will get there continue to do what you are doing”.
I have had the opportunity to be a mentor to this girl this year. I am very thankful my professor has faith in me and chose me out of his 250 other students to be the one intern.
This girl is a broken soul. She is hurting. She isn’t in the best of relationships but she feels that he is the only one that “loves” her. She has been through abuse both verbal and non verbal and she has had every addiction in the book. My human nature would tell me to judge her, but my heart that Christ has blessed me with has told me to love her like Christ and the church does.
The biggest problem in our society the ME generation. We are materialists. We are always after the next hot things. We crave to be the most popular thing on the planet. I had a guy come in to talk to me and he had the lowest self esteem due to the fact there is an app out called hot or not and no one said he was hot.
I beg this generation to get on fire for Christ and not care about other things like who is in and who isn’t.
I choose to be a Clinical Psychologist because I want to be the change that God calls our generation to be. So if it takes me the next ten years to accomplish all the degrees I need then Bring it on. Because I choose to be the change this world needs.
