Caregiver You Are Not Alone – James Story

Do Not Believe the Things You Tell Yourself

We humans, and even more so, caregivers, have a unique ability to find ways to blame ourselves when things go wrong. When this occurs, we doubt our ability to continue. We lose sleep trying to pinpoint what we missed, or what we did or didn’t do that resulted in another setback or a very bad day.

Listen to James’s story and his doubts. Then listen to what follows and understand you are not alone in feeling as you do. After that, take a few moments to feel the regret or guilt that you are facing. It would do no good for me to tell you not to feel as you do. Go with it for a bit. Wallow as most of us do. Then take a deep breath and move on knowing you did your very best and that is all you need to do. That, and be as kind to yourself as you are to others. Blessed be the caregivers.

Blessed Be The Caregivers
