Sound familiar? Other symptoms include headaches, digestive problems, feeling overwhelmed and irritability.
Trying to help a friend through a tough situation not only impacts you because you care about your friend and want to help lessen their struggle, but also because not knowing how to help to take away their pain can feel overwhelming. That said, if you continue to feel anxious, exhausted and unusually detached from the people around you, then you may be experiencing compassion fatigue.
It can be hard to hear a friend talk about a problem and from your perspective feel powerless to help them. If you find yourself feeling apathetic toward a person you know is in an unhealthy relationship, then this may be the first of fatigue. Stepping away from the situation at least for a little and asking for help from a trusted friend or counselor may be the best thing for you at this time.
Remember, your friend is likely picking up on your frustration, which serves no one and may compound any feelings of isolation they are experiencing. Just keep in mind that they are going through a lot with the relationship. Speak with a counselor to help you work through your feelings.Sik World - I Need a Friend (Lyrics)
If you find that you are not just avoiding the person in an unhealthy relationship, but also everyone in your life, then you may be experiencing compassion fatigue. What makes compassion fatigue different is the feeling of being overwhelmed to the point where you have a hard time connecting with others or lack the desire to do anything beyond binge watching Gilmore Girls.
Compassion fatigue can amplify this feeling, making it difficult to be optimistic about anything. A ificant negative change in your normal behavior can be a of compassion fatigue.
Many people that experience compassion fatigue also feel shame towards themselves for not being able to support their friend the way they would like too. When you begin to feel overwhelmed and overburdened by helplessness, the best thing to do is to reach out for support.
