Compassion Fatigue is a Killer - Ask Me Anything.
The stress, strain, pressure and speed of life today makes everyone struggle to fit everything into 24hrs, so one of the first areas you drop is your self-care. Whether you are an entrepreneur or a brain surgeon you are giving part of yourself to others on an hourly basis. If you do not refuel, you will soon be running on empty.
Compassion fatigue is not just stress, anxiety or depression, it is all of them plus a huge element of self-corrosion, shutting yourself off from others, feeling overwhelmed and unworthy. Self-care diminishes and in the long run exhaustion and burnout.
My background is psychology, having my own mega burnout in 2005, I did not get any support and things are not much better all these years on, so my passion is to get people to care for themselves as much as they care for others. AMA!
