diminished returns

…living in a community where crying, weeping and mourning is a weekly, or sometimes daily event has driven me to apathy. I never knew that my sense of compassion could become fatigued, but now I’m no longer able to find the energy. Knowing that grief is something that can only be comforted through the cruel passage of time leaves me feeling hopeless, unable to help. I’ve reached a point where I distance myself and don’t offer support. This feeling of apathy troubles me. I worry, I feel like I’m losing my ability to care about anything.
