4 Ways to Combat Compassion Fatigue

Compassion Fatigue is huge in the animal welfare and veterinary communities. Signs can be depression, anger, anxiety, sadness, and more.

People who work in shelters and rescues often say it’s the hardest job they ever had. But they stay there because the animals need them. They are passionate about their work, but there’s only so much help they can offer as an individual. And the heartbreak that they experience becomes what is known as Compassion Fatigue.

I’m not good enough.

I’ll never earn as much money as I need to.

No one will ever like the real me.

I’m afraid of dying poor.

I’m afraid of looking stupid.

There aren’t enough good jobs to go around.

I have to please people so that they’ll love me.

CREATING OUR LIFE VISION

Word count 613

 

You've probably heard that you can only get where you want to be if you know where you're going. This pithy statement is as true now as the first time it was said. So how do we come to know where we’re going so we can get where we want to be?

 

To start with, goals are crucial. When we set goals, what we're really trying to do is to bring each piece of our lives in line with our overall vision for ourselves. Using a…

Heal in the Splendor of Nature

Everyone gets a little down from time to time, but Nature is one of the best mood boosters available. The beauty of our surroundings can help us feel happy and whole again.

 Using all our senses is key to enjoying all nature has to offer.

 Smell: What plants do you smell? Can you smell the moist soil, and freshly mown grass?

Sight: What do you see?  Stare into the sky and watch the trees riffled by the wind. Look…

Criticism--4 Types and How to Survive Them

Out of the blue―BLAMO!―someone CRITICIZES us. It’s unexpected and hurtful, and it’s personal, or at least if feels that way.

What do we do? We want to defend ourselves, or punish the offender. Maybe a well-aimed insult. But if this is a friend, colleague, boss, or family member, we might not want to burn that bridge. Where does that leave us?

How do we navigate the tricky waters of criticism? The next few moments are crucial to our continued relationship with that…

Why Do We Pray?

I had a strange dream. A woman was shaking me by the shoulders asking me frantically “Why do you pray? Why do you pray?” Her face inches from my own, her wild gray hair snaking around her head.

Startled awake, this vivid dream stuck with me all day, and I wondered why I got this message.

So why do we pray? Larry Dussey writes (in the foreword to The Energy of Prayer, by Thich Nhat Hanh) “The urge to pray is universal. We know of no culture past or…

Maybe We Need To Hug A Tree?

When despair for the world grows in me

And I wake in the night at the least sound

In fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake

Rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things…

I rest…

Have You Lost Your MUCHNESS?

The Mad Hatter looked closely at Alice and said, “You’re not the same as you were before. You were much more…Muchier.” (From the 2010 movie Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Dep—check out Alice in Wonderland Muchness on YouTube!)

 

In the original story, Alice stumbled down a rabbit hole following a talking rabbit. Outrageous adventures followed and she boldly faced each one, asked questions and challenged answers. Alice traveled again to Wonderland as a 19-year old,…

Life is Funny. Or not.

I'm getting older. Some would say I'm already there. And as I move through careers that I thought would last forever, I find that many things that were once important to me, no longer interests me.

I've gone from retail, to publishing, to animal care. Now I'm offering Reiki for animals (and people), and angel tarot readings.I'm more comfortable than I have ever been with myself.

I want to explore this more, and I want to start this conversation with others. How have you changed…
