In Six Words, What’s a Caregiving Worry?

cliff-edge1Before caregiving, you thought you had worries.

Then caregiving comes and you think, “Why in the world did I waste my time worrying about such small stuff?”

The worries in caregiving can stop your heart and leave your breath-less. They can keep you up at night and take up time during your day. And, sometimes, you can feel like you’re the only who has these worries.

So, let’s keep company in our worries. Let’s share what we worry about and, for fun, do it in six words. Your worry may look like this:

I worry I’ll not know enough.

What if I no longer can?

Egos will derail what’s important.

What’s your six-word caregiving worry? Please share below in our comments section.

    Have I really forgiven? Should I?

    • Avatar of Kathy

      I have learned that forgiveness isn’t for the other person, but more for setting our own self free from bitterness and negative feelings. Also doesn’t mean forget and continue, just move on with peace.

    Hi Richard, thanks for the help! I guess I always wonder if my two high powered sisters wonder if I am doing well enough. And then? I doubt myself! Thanks for all the insights though! They’re great! :)
