The Most Complicated Job in the World

 

I Don't Know If I Can Do This Anymore

I’m sure there are many jobs that fall under the most complicated, but I have to say that I think the most complicated, and perhaps the least appreciated, is parenting. Why? Well, you don’t get paid anything. You don’t know if you will ever be completely successful at it. Every day, heck every minute, offers you a new opportunity and new challenge. You may think you are doing the right thing, only to discover that somehow it was completely the wrong thing to do. More often than not someone is telling you that you are wrong or mean. Your employees (aka children) often show you little to know respect, and can rebel on a regular basis.

The rewards of a hug and love, when they are achieved, are the most precious reward in the world–but you have to work hard to get them sometimes.  Sigh.
