What's Your Worry? Mine? That I'll Be Mean

worriedWe try to find the silver lining, to focus on the positive, to keep a perspective that keeps us going.

I do my best but honestly, when I think about a future of caring for my parents, I worry that I will be mean. That I'll blow my top over something silly. That I'll say something that I'll regret. I worry that I will be short on patience and compassion and full of snarkiness and judgment.

And, then they'll die and I'll be left with the memories of being unkind.

Ugh.
