I clearly do not know how to properly balance multiple people's concerns. I'm especially bad when such requires discression.

Point is, you tried, right?
If the people care enough about you to share their concerns, they'll get over it.

It is difficult to balance the concerns of many. You should balance your own concerns first. Then explain your position and ability to adjust and accommodate the concerns of others. But such negotiations require the others whose concerns you are balancing to be reasonable in their requests, understanding in balancing your position, and placing high value on your balancing act.

Remember such a balancing act is in constant flux.
Good luck Atlas, don't shrug!

I find the trick is not necessarily managing concerns as much as managing expectations. Always make sure the person is crystal clear about what they are expecting from you and not assuming certain things (especially if it's something that involves privacy and discretion; I always ask that people spell that one out...). We are all human and prone to honest mistakes.

Moreover, ensure you are taking care of yourself first, otherwise you will be in no condition to assist those who's concerns you are addressing.
