28 Ways to Show the Love: Accept My Life As Normal

Denise
Each day in February, we’ll share a way that family members and friends can help the family caregiver in their lives. (A family caregiver is an individual who cares for a family member or friend, just like you.) Through our campaign, we hope to create awareness of what family caregivers do and how others can help.

Today’s tip comes from me; I help my parents and an aunt: Accept my life.

Why this tip is important: I have made choices in my life that you may not agree with. You don't have to agree with them to accept them. When you accept my caregiving lifestyle as normal, you accept me. I am challenged regularly about my choices. When you accept rather than challenge, you minimize my stress. When I feel accepted, I feel less stressed.

(Have an idea you’d like us to include? Email your idea to Denise and include an explanation of why your tip is so important.)
