Overwhelmed by life, I can turn away from helping others. Caregiver lesson; I have learned not to judge myself too harshly in those moments.
A Help to Others- To Be or Not to Be
As a caregiver, I often have the opportunity to help others dealing with illness.
At times, I jump in and help them even though I am already busy. This makes me feel useful and fulfilled.
At other times, I turn away from the chance to get involved because adding one more struggle to my life is too much.
I have learned not to judge myself harshly in those moments and to avoid judging others for the way they react to those who are struggling.
