As caregivers, we can easily drain our physical and mental energy tanks doing everything we can do to try to save our loved one – to somehow scoop them up and out of their situation and make everything better.

And I’m not just talking about saving them from the pain of their illness or the struggle of their decline. I’m also talking about trying to save them from the cumulative results of their life choices, or trying to save them from the injustices of the health care system, or trying to save them from the cruelties of our society.

It can be heartbreaking to come to terms with the realization that you cannot save your loved one, but learning how to accept that reality plugs a huge caregiver energy leak and draws that energy back into yourself…

…which allows you to refocus on what you can do. You can help them, you can care for them, and you can accompany them through this chapter of their life.

If this resonates with you, let me know.

Thank you for being one of the ones who care.
