A Caregiving Comfort: Please

A Caregiving Comfort: Please

Denise
It's the silent plea.

Please call me back.


Please be on time.


Please help me.


It's particularly frustrating because you feel like much of your time is spent trying to please (your boss, your family, your caree) that you can't believe you haven't received a karma of please's in return.

You can feel hostage to please.

What if, for just this one moment, you gave pause to what pleases you? In this moment, what can you give yourself permission to say or do that brings you a please?

Perhaps, right now, it would please you to release a worry, trusting you've done all you can.

Maybe, right now, it would please you to embrace an opportunity you've long discounted at the same time you've long wanted.

What if you took this moment and a moment every day to simply focus on you without guilt or worrying it won't please another?

I hope you will. Please.

Absolutely. I need to read this every day. I have started protecting my time in the morning for walking, prayer and chat time. To spend quality time with me....no guilt. I am also learning to say \"no\"..or that is really not the best yes for me right, now so I need to wait or do something different. I am finding it is also important for me, with family, to explain what I need to and to understand why they are asking what they are asking of me. The big thing is for me to pause, breathe and say, It's okay to take care of me. Thanks for this post. I love it.
