Our Notes to Ourselves: Tears

Denise
crying-729439_640Late last year I launched a new section in our Forums called Notes to Ourselves, taking inspiration from a regular segment on “CBS This Morning” called Note to Self. In the segment, individuals share a note they wrote to their younger selves. On a regular basis, we’ll write notes to ourselves around events and situations.

For our next Notes to Ourselves, let’s write about tears. Write a note to yourself, reflecting on what makes you cry, what used to make you cry but no longer does, how you cope with your tears and what you might learn from it.

In addition, you can write about your caree’s tears or another family member’s tears. How do you feel when you see their tears? How do you respond? How do you wish you would respond but don’t? How does their tears impact yours?

You can write as many notes to yourself about tears as you’d like. Just create a new topic to write your note. And, anyone (Caregiving.com members as well as visitors) can write a note in our Forums. You also can write a note to yourself about anger.

Write a note to yourself about tears.
