Last week, I posted about an article in The New York Times about caregiving’s hidden benefits. Yesterday, I co-hosted a chat on Twitter that explored these benefits. (You can view the transcript of yesterday’s chat here.)
All this talk has me wondering: What do you view as your unexpected benefit of caregiving? What’s changed for the better for you because of caregiving? What’s better about you, your relationships, your world, your house because of caregiving?
And, to make it fun, share your benefit in six words. Your benefit may read like this:
I am so proud of myself.
I understand my caree much better.
Forgiveness lives in my heart.
So, please share your six-word unexpected benefit of caregiving in our comments section, below. Feel free to share as many as you’d like. One of our winners will receive a Caregiving.com gym bag.
Thanks so much for sharing!
