Limits of your empathy
I think I don't have so called "a big heart".
I mean, a big heart should have room for a lot of love, right?
But my capacity for empathy is definitely limited.
Dealing with my family, managing our conflicts, doing some support online is close to this limit - now my aunt called in late night, probably drunk, poor, lonely lady stuck in her tiny apartament on the lockdown, just wanted some real human contact...
When my husband today spotted another fish falling to a disease our Hellena snails apparently brought to the tank, I told him to care for the fish on his own, I just can't squeeze any more caring out of myself :(
So, he isolated the fish, hoping the disease wouldn't spread any further.
Anyone hit their limits of empathy hard?
