How do I distance myself from others problems and still remain caring and concerned for their situation?

I work with many people everyday, in the last few months I have heard so many heartbreaking stories about peoples financial situations, losing their jobs, homes, etc... That most evenings I go home depressed and worried I could end up in the same situation. How do I separate myself from the problems of others? My job requires compassion and good listening skills when dealing with others. There really is no way for me to NOT listen to their troubles? I just want to know how to keep me sane in the process.

REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY, THINGS HAPPEN EVERYDAY, JUST MAKE THE BEST OF IT, ENJOY THE FACT YOU'RE NOT IN THE SITATION, BECAUSE IT'S TRUE IT MAY HAPPEN TO YOU. WHY BE MISERABLE NOW IF YOU DON'T HAVE A REASON? WORRYING IS THE MOST USLESS EMOTION, IT DOES NOTHING TO HELP.
