I got tired of thinking about food (gasp), so I caved and finally took that book quiz everyone was blogging about last week. This unfortunately does sum me up pretty well, although I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m cold and heartless… just a little less idealistic than I once was about saving the world, etc. Maybe I should read this book.
You’re Compassion Fatigue!
by Susan Moeller
You used to care, but now it’s just getting too difficult. You cared
about the plight of people in lands near and far, but now the media has bombarded you
with images of suffering to the point that you just don’t have the energy to go on.
You’ve become cold and heartless, as though you’d lived in New York City for a year or
so. But you stand as a serious example to all others that they should turn off their TV
sets and start caring again.
