You didn't get from my post that I feel hope for the marginalised people I work with, where I had felt resignation. And I'm inspired to do the time consuming bits of my job that I've been neglecting because collecting the data is important?
But your colleagues aren't inspirational?
I wonder if that reflects on the type of sector you work in.
What I immediately took from your post was that you wanted to talk about your job, but were saying (to me) you didn’t want to talk about your job. Posting a link to your conference lecturer and inferring that I do my own research into you job, while telling me you don’t want to talk about it put the hairs on the back of my neck up frankly.
Hence my reply “I’m not asking you about your job or personal information.” Please make up your mind if you want to discuss your job with me, or not..but don’t infer the former and then immediately say the other. I am NOT asking you for personal information but i am more than happy to discuss with you whatever is on you mind.
I perceive that what you have been inspired to do is be resilient, resourceful and diligent in gaining the facts which support your desire to help a sector of your local community I and I salute you in your efforts.
I didn’t say “I don’t meet with colleagues” and I didn’t say “I don’t find them inspirational”. If you are going to be inspired to collect and collate data, you will need to be a little better than this 😊
