It is a frustrating experience to go into work feeling good, focused, and energized only to feel a few hours later exhausted. You wonder what just happened! You say to yourself, “I had no disagreements, just daily work with co-workers, some of whom are having hard times in their life, or I listened for the umpteenth time their sad story.” A connection in your mind is not made to your empathy for them and your energy loss, yet there is a connection.

They walk away feeling better having filled up on your energy and you feel lower, perhaps even sad.
