Energy Vampires

Published

on

Energy Vampires…yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Those special people who drain every ounce of energy from you because they demand so much encouragement, coaxing, and time. We all have them in our lives. Sadly, sometimes we are even related to or married to them. It doesn’t mean the relationship is doomed, but it will definitely require some major reconstruction.
First, you must identify them. You will know who they are because when you are done spending time with them, you will be exhausted. The mental energy required is simply too much. A body can only be drained so far before a recharge has to occur. If you are unable to recharge, you might find yourself snapping at others. Your “nice” is all used up. Most likely the Energy Vampires, EV’s, have many victims. They prey on those who are compassionate, want to help, and are generally kind people. Reality is that if you are unable to detach from the vampire and regroup, you may attach yourself to someone else and suck them dry. It’s a bit like the flu. It can be contagious, and that never generates a great outcome. It often happens in a close environment in a workplace. If boundaries aren’t drawn you can become the next victim. Do a self-check and make sure you aren’t the vampire first! Boundaries will be the answer to combatting Energy Vampires in the workplace and in your personal relationships. In the work place you can create “save me alliances”. This is a response to being cornered by an EV. A co-worker get a look or a signal from you and know you require assistance. The signal can be a code word, cough, phone call, etc. It is not a way of avoiding the situation, but working together to reduce the carnage and reduction in productivity. I once worked where there were two offices side by side, and any time that an EV walked in, they got 5 minutes. After that, the person in the next office would call them and tell them they needed their help. This was a strategy implemented after the EV stood there for 2-3 hours a couple of different times. Truly a plan was needed. Know who the energy vampires are in your life and have a plan in place for saving yourself. They are often lovely people that simply do not even understand what they cause. Knowing who they are and what your plan is to deal with them will save you a lot of grief. Draw the boundaries and protect yourself- no garlic needed!

The Heart of the Matter - Support The Club at Collington Square!

The November 26th Baltimore Sun story about East Baltimore neighborhoods was discouraging: “Poverty Makes a Powerful Statement”. The poorest area of East Baltimore, north of Hopkins Hospital, struggles with a grim list of challenges: poverty, violence, vacant properties, liquor stores and the lowest life expectancy in the city.

But in four renovated and connected rowhomes on Mura Street, behind four colorful doors, daily miracles are happening. The Club at Collington Square is an afterschool and summer program, a consistent, loving, educational haven for 92 children in a very tough neighborhood.

Here, Club staff are teaching and building the leaders this neighborhood and this city need. The staff know that changing young lives changes everyone’s future.

Program Director Vanessa Williams has intentionally recruited and developed a staff of young leaders as teachers and assistants — almost 100 percent of whom live in the neighborhood The Club serves. These dedicated staff provide a highly structured program between the hours of 3:15 and 6:30 chock full of academics, enrichment, play and homework help, and provide a snack and hot dinner cooked by The Club Chef in the on-site Community Kitchen. The program emphasizes student voice and leadership with roles for older scholars to mentor and serve younger scholars, and an elected student council.

Strong City Baltimore assumed operations of The Club at Collington Square when Episcopal Community Services of Maryland sought a more sustainable future. Strong City believes deeply in The Club and in its incredible staff, who do heroic work every day with some of Baltimore’s most vulnerable children.

Strong City assumed operations of The Club in October with a $130,000 deficit, which we have already reduced to $65,000. Your gift today will help us keep the doors open and enable the staff to be there every day with what our scholars need most: love, nourishment, academics and enrichment. It’s easy to despair when the headlines are so discouraging.

But we know that loving and investing in Baltimore’s children is the answer. Your gift will help the Club continue to build young leaders that will change Baltimore’s future.

Click here to give! Be sure to designate your gift to “The Club at Collington Square” and consider joining The Friends of The Club with a monthly gift of $100.
