This isn't really related to my A but this is the forum I am most comfortable in so I'm posting it here. ..

My previous job was at a daycare. The families in the center were all working/upper class and from the suburbs.

My new job is a bit different. I am still working with kids and families but now I go to their homes, and am working with inner city families. 90 percent of my clients are involved with DCF (department of children and families). All of my clients receive benefits from the state and are lower class.

So the population is obviously different...the families I work with struggle with issues of poverty, homelessness, abuse, domestic violence, drugs, gangs, the list goes on and on.

It is so hard to go to these homes and work with these families and not just go home and cry for them and what they deal with on a daily basis.....yesterday I broke down during a staff meeting cuz I was so overwhelmed with my first two visits of the day.

I don't know how not to do this.....to remain professional and not let it get to me

The stop sign has been removed...please be more careful in the future.

My tolerance for stupid shit is getting less and less.

I would suggest creating a routine each day. Allow yourself a short amount of time to reflect on what you saw meditate or pray (whatever works for you) about what you hope for them to have. Think about what you have and what you are thankful for. This routine is about not stuffing down what you feel about what you see but actually facing it without dwelling on it.

Exercise too when you can work it in. It makes for a good stress reliever.

My wife also works in an Environment that is tough like that.

I would suggest that you use your colleges and your husband to unload on. That's what my wife does. 15 min most nights she unloads something that bother her during the day and I Think she feels good being able to just talk to me about it. I mostly listen and ask a few questions.
