Compassion Fatigue: When the Candle Finally Burns Out
Show Notes

Have you exhausted your stores of love and compassion for other humans?  Do you feel withdrawn or quiet, and if so would you like to hear us discuss this part of life tonight?

Welcome back.

Tonight Cullen and Raj tackle compassion fatigue.  This is a real thing!  Invariably one or all of you listening has experiencing this even this in the past, perhaps even this week.

What can we do about it?  How do we recognize it?  What is wrong with it and are we allowed this fatigue from time to time?  We will get deep in the weeds on this one.

The intro and exit music is written and performed by Cullen Kehoe.
