Professional givers hold onto experiences, meet people that they can’t forget, and carry great burdens upon themselves. Because of this, many excellent professionals become stressed, burnt-out, and dissatisfied in their careers. Many turn to bad habits for coping.
- Professional Givers work odd hours. This often causes isolation, struggles, and/or sacrifices to maintain relationships and a social life.
- Professional Givers work long, demanding shifts that sometimes require you to give more than you have to give.
- Professional Givers often feel powerless, and nothing could be further from the truth.
I feel that by taking care of those who take care of everyone else, one can create a better experience for both the giver and those that cross their paths. For example, an empowered nurse who lives a happy, balanced life and is living their dream will pass that positive energy on to their patients and colleagues. This can change the work environment and create better outcomes for patients.
