Angel, Good Counsel.  “…I try and take time to honor the day, the people I have provided support to, and the experiences that have happened…”

Laura, “…Not getting in bed with patients… I feel it makes me more available to care and tend the spirit of the person with whom I am ministering.”  Emotional distancing is important and challenging in our empathic roles.  Thanks for the reminder that it is a decision that needs to be made to be there without being hooked.  I learned during my CPE days that the fixer in me was better left on mute.
