Compassion fatigue is real.
Actual fatigue is real.
It's okay to be tired. It's okay to take some time for self-care so you can run the marathon and not burn out in a sprint.
As tired as I am - the past week has also lit a fire under my a$$ because I'm seeing more clearly than ever how tired other people are. They've been fighting battles I thought I appreciated but I now know...that wasn't enough.
I respected you all before. That respect is so much deeper now because I cannot imagine how tired you (and all other #black #sales pros) are doing your jobs, taking on the emotional labor of educating your friends and colleagues on demand, and you know...living.
So #ThankfulThursday - thank you again to each of you (and everyone else sharing stories, educating and advocating on here).
Don't take your foot off the gas. We've got a ways to go.
