Compassion Fatigue and Dogs?

Who would have thought we could get tired from helping?!? We love to help! Don't get us wrong, we love our WORK, but we have learned that you can only work with so many emotions in one day before you are needing a long nap! We think everyone needs to find what their limit is to providing compassion and empathy...ours tend to vary on the topic the kids are processing that day. We are teaching Tara and learning ourselves when to know that our bodies and minds need to rest in order to be the best therapist we can be. Hopefully each of you reading this can find a way to identify when you can not provide the support to others without first taking care of yourself and figure out what your limit is. Rest up...we are!
