You’ve become a Modern Caregiver.
You are a big-hearted, capable, get-it-done person – who already had multiple demands on your time and energy even before caregiving entered your life.
Perhaps you’re the person that your family (or community) naturally leans on for assistance or advice or organization… so naturally you stepped-up when a loved one needed care.
And, of course, your big heart wants to help.
And you’ve made the commitment.
…you can’t devote your entire life to giving care (as society has relied on so many women to do throughout history).
…you know that “pressing pause” on your life is a myth (this IS your life – extra years won’t be magically added to the end of it as a thank you bonus).
…you are also concerned that your own desires and plans and goals are being crushed / diminished / swept aside by the demands of supporting someone else during their crisis or throughout their chronic condition (or their decline towards death).
You might be getting caught in spin-cycles of sadness / anger / worry / frustration about how your career or your home life or your own health is being impacted by these added responsibilities (and shifts in your family relationships).
Or maybe you’re exhausting yourself in a heroic attempt to save your loved one from their circumstances.
Yeah. This is difficult stuff.
Caregiving is one of the most complex challenges life has to offer – physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially. Even so, I know you will make it through.
My question is…
…do you want to carry the weight of this situation all by yourself or would you like to learn how to make it a little bit lighter, a little more manageable by supporting yourself with some coaching and strategic guidance?
In other words: Would you like to merely go through this chapter of your life… or would you like to grow through it?
