compassion fatigue true of our profession. So easy to bury the feelings and "move on" to the next crises or next need, thinking we are strong enough. But those loses remain, whether we acknowledge them or not.
What is compassion fatigue, and how to cope with it. Not just for nurses or other professional - family members (primary care givers) experience it too! You can't take care of someone else, if you don't take care of yourself first.
Self-compassion has so many benefits one of the most prominent is the effect it has on my mental health. I also find that through self-compassion I can be more loving and compassionate towards others and most of all I can be true to myself.
