I'm a groomer and I 100% see why. Most of my friends also work with animals and it can be a very isolating field. You overwork for the love of living beings and you're constantly seeing the mistreatment of innocents. I and every single one of my friends have either some sort of mental health issue or came from a bad home. We have all been so low that we cope by showing kindness to others. But then compassion fatigue hits. Hatred towards the owners and the horrible trauma these animals have endured.

Isolated, depressed, and hopeless. Of course this is happening.
