Seemingly conflicting feelings common in not-for-profit & public sector colleagues

I’m willing to bet you’ve felt at least one of these things!

You can be kind & giving AND stick to your boundaries

You could have done more AND the work you did was enough

Other people are struggling more than you AND your struggle is still real

You are a plate-spinner AND you need a break

You are talented and know your stuff AND sometimes you need help

The fact of the matter is, each of these things can be true. At the same time

And there are many other pairings that are the same

Just because one statement, idea, feeling or emotion is true / valid / right does not automatically render the conflicting or different thought, feeling or emotion false / invalid / wrong

These do not suggest failure, weakness or lack of ability to cope

You are amazing - fact!
