team-472488_640Sometimes, caregiving feels loud.

You may have to speak loudly to your caree to be heard. You may have to scream (at least in your head) at the insurance company to get the coverage you need. You may have to yell for help when a caregiving task overtakes.

But even during its loudest moments, caregiving still seems to whisper to you:

You won't be able to keep up.

You're not strong enough to manage.

You're going to make a huge mistake.

Those whispers can be the loudest noise you hear all day.

When the doubts begin to tempt, turn down their volume. Because the doubts, quite simply, are wrong.

You are keeping up.

You are strong enough.

You can do this correctly.

We know what your doubts don't: You can. Listen to us.
