You know how when people are sad for you, you feel like you have to take care of their sadness as well as your own? What is that?
@Tori yup. It’s a thing. I find I have to have a lot of boundaries in terms of managing the sadness of others, but also sometimes show them through my own example how to “lean in” to their own sadness and still be “okay.” Does that make sense?
@Julie Yes that does make sense. I find I have to actively remind myself that I am not responsible for other people’s sadness—it’s not “letting people down” to be sad.
