Emotional Exhaustion

Yesterday, I came home on the verge of tears. One of my jobs, for which I signed a confidentiality agreement, just takes it out of me. I wasn't upset for myself, I was upset for what I saw at work, upset for the people who need to use the services offered by the center I work at. I am back there today and I really need to give myself a thicker skin...............

My wife is a teacher and I tell her that from time to time, but then I realize that if she weren't such a caring person, she wouldn't be good at her job.

Ah babe.. I'm a teacher. Things at work can really bog you down when they are sometimes the most horrendous things you've ever heard in your life or situations which make you feel sad or mad at your helplessness to fix the situation. I empathize *HUUUGS*
