In Six Words, What's a Caregiving Guilt?

Denise
law-1063249_640There's guilt.

And, then there's caregiving guilt.

I'm not sure there's anything quite like caregiving guilt because you can feel guilty for so much during the day. You feel guilty about losing your patience for a minute (even though you've held your tongue for 10 hours). You feel guilty for taking a few hours to yourself (even though you've been available to everyone and everything for the past 12 days straight). You feel guilty for needing a break (even though everyone else in the family happily takes theirs).

Oy vey, the guilt.

For this six-word write about your caregiving guilt. You can write a story about what makes you feel guilty. You can share how the caregiving guilt feels. You can even write about how you overcome your caregiving guilt.

Share your six-word story about caregiving guilt in our comments section, below. I'll pick a random winner to receive a copy of my latest book, Take Even More Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers. (You'll love it!)
