Flip the script. The simplest way to prevent vicarious trauma, stress, worry, woe is to make our compassion, faith and love bigger than our fatigue, fear or hate. This might require a very big cup of coffee depending on the day.
Once the formula becomes a permanent fixture in our minds we realize there’s nothing new under the sun. There’s no need for dramatic reactions, wind machines or scandalous headlines. Everything becomes a parallel of the cycles of life, death, rebirth and healing. So, love. Rinse. Reflect. Repeat.
