S1 E10 When Caring for Others Lead to Burnout Part II
Sometimes in doing good we find ourselves in situations where the environment is unpredictable, hostile, where the demands are overwhelming, and the social support is sorely lacking. When this happens, the joy of caring for our neighbors can become difficult. When we're running on empty, it's hard to continue to care for others when we find ourselves worn out. It's not a personal failing or a flaw, it's simply a matter of being human. Join Ken & Rob in part II of their conversation as they share their experiences of burnout and how they dealt with it. In today's episode, Rob concludes the conversation by sharing how he experienced burnout after finding himself journeying with the activist community that was highly unpredictable, at times hostile, the needs being overwhelming while feeling under-supported by the church.
