Taking care of you is essential. I always thought it was cheesy when people said “you can’t pour from an empty cup”. But you really can’t. No one at your job (no matter how supportive) will take care of you. You have to do the work. Find a therapist or psychiatrist. Get on medication if you need to (I was terrified of this but I had made a world of difference). You have to be willing to make boundaries. This job easily asks so much of us. And we got into this profession because we’re the type of people willing to give everything. But you much set boundaries. You must prioritize your mental health.
