Yesterday, on Your Caregiving Journey, Elizabeth Lombardo, our happiness expert, joined me to discuss the impact of our anger on our moments of happiness. You can listen to our show via the player below.
During our show, Elizabeth reminded us that anger is a normal emotion.It’s also an emotion that typically stems from another feeling we have. Often, our feelings of helplessness lead us to our feelings of anger.
We spoke about importance of managing our anger rather than stuffing it back in or pretending it doesn’t exist. We discussed common situations that cause anger during caregiving, especially at the end of your caree’s life. It’s common to be angry as the end nears; we discussed strategies to manage the anger during those times. Because when you stay angry, you let anger steal the moments that could bring you happiness.
