Compassion Overload

May 12, 2016

Only 50 wild red wolves are left!

Donate to the Alzheimers Assocation.

Moms demand action for gun sense in America.

Contribute today.

We need your help.

Elephants are suffering.

Help provide relief in the Nile River Basin.

Baby cows living in crates.

304 bears were killed.

The demands on my empathy come fast and furiously. It stresses me out. I can’t give money to all the worthwhile causes, but how to choose? Give or not give? A rock and a hard place.

I regularly debate canceling my subscription to email lists, like Change.org and others. Living unawares and blocking news out won’t make them go away or any less important.

My compassion overload won’t go away. It won’t stop. It’s how I channel it that matters.

    You do what you can and trust someone else can help with the others.
