to love when you don't want to anymore

loving my clients has never really been a task for me. it came naturally and further confirmed that i had chosen the right profession. and then i started working with the mentally ill population; more specifically, mentally ill straight men. and i began wondering if it was even possible for me to find love in my heart for them in spite of all of their pervy comments and blatant manipulation tactics. who would've thought this would be the hardest task of my new job. i guess someone wanted to put my love to the test - am i able to love the seemingly unlovable? i've come to find that it is a daily process. and it is work. but i am hoping i can get better and better at it.
