Something else that comes to mind with compassion fatigue is taking the time to process when I need to. I am a widow with no children so when I come home I have no one to process with. Now that is not to say I don’t have friends, I do however many of them do not want to hear about people who are dying. I do reach out to my team often. I find that when I don’t take time to process when I need to my ability to not carry it with me diminishes and I hang on to it much longer.
