So much I could write about today, but I have virtually no energy to write.
I realise there are many reasons why volunteering is emotionally and physically draining, but I am glad I did it.
I think the anxiety, the hypervigilance of being in a new environment and around new people….. plus all these people who came in today for the food and told me some of their stories, plus a few volunteers were in tears about their own personal lives and I was concerned about them, being empathic as I am and feeling other people’s emotions with them …. all made it a pretty full on day for me.
But, that’s okay.
