In a recent advice column, a writer lamented that she was accident prone and with her most recent injury, rather than getting sympathy from friends, they teased her about her clumsiness. The columnist suggested that her friends may have compassion fatigue. I sometimes feel guilty over what feels like a lack of sympathy and empathy, but I’d never considered a spectrum for compassion. I can relate to compassion fatigue. “My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word” (Psalm 119:28 NIV).
