What I liked
I enjoy the flexibility of the position (I log on twice a week, from anywhere from around 10PM until 2/3AM depending on my schedule) and the temporary relationships I form with the texters. Especially during
times like pandemic and elections, there have been more and more people dealing with domestic abuse, depression, anxiety, loneliness, and more, so I wanted to devote my time to people who were looking for support. The other crisis counselors and supervisors on the Platform are pretty sociable and engaging, which helps to create a little community online that continues past once I've logged off for the night/week.
