You Can’t Be Everything To Everybody

We’re all going through life at full speed.There are so many people in our lives that we touch everyday.The need to always be available to them is overwhelming. Imagine what’s it’s like as a caregiver.

As a caregiver, you are adding another level to your daily demands. Many of us are working while trying to balance the needs of family. At times it feels like we are being pulled in so many directions that if a good wind comes, we’ll shatter into a million pieces. When that happens, that’s when we have to remember “You can’t be everything, to everybody”.

Decisions and Balance: The Misconceptions About Caregivers

Caregivers need love too! An oldie, but hopefully a goodie. Let’s keep the conversation going. Enjoy!

This post was born out a conversation I had with a really good friend. One of her friends, who she happens to work with was not responding to her calls or texts. It really hurt her feelings, and made her question their friendship. Especially, since another friend was able to speak with her. All of these things I’m sure sound like they might have an issue.Except, in this case there is a twist. Her friend is taking care of her sister, who has had a reoccurrence of breast cancer. She also happens to be the mother of a teenage son, and has a family that she works hard to support.

The Perfect Balance

The Perfect Balance

It’s amazing how love and forgiveness go together. Each an integral part of the other. But, always being spoken about like it’s two separate things. I guess you don’t really start to make the connection until you have to really think about it..

I’ve had the opportunity to think about it a lot lately. Between battles at home with my mom, to health challenges with my aunt. I’ve had a front row seat to witnessing how integral love and forgiveness are to each other. No matter how angry you are with someone you love, when they need you, it’s amazing how love makes you forget anything that happened. This is not a permanent solution to the problem. But, it definitely shows how love can move things to the back burner pretty quickly when needed.

Standing In My Truth

Stand in Truth

In order to move forward and get better. You have to be willing to own the areas of yourself that need to be fixed. So, I’m starting this out by admitting, “I’m broken”.

I’m “broken”, and at times this causes me to lash out at the people I love. Especially, in times of high emotional pressure. This isn’t a new discovery, this is just my new way of dealing with it. I’m going to stand in it,versus trying to act like it doesn’t exist.
