Are you at risk for secondary traumatic stress?
Caring is a finite resource. I learned that from an Ojibwa second grader. At the beginning of the school year, David (not his real name) would jerk his neck back to flick the bangs out of his light brown eyes and write, "I love Mario. I love Mario. I love Mario" to the bottom of the page, and then grin and ask, "What do you think, Mr. Todd?" Some days, the page would be filled with, "I love soccer."
