A friend lost a much loved pet today. She called weeping.
In-between sobs she said, “I know it’s the cost of loving – it just hurts right now.”
We are given conflicting advice sometimes as caregivers.
“Don’t get to close.”
“When you stop caring – get out of the profession.”
“You’ll never survive if you care too much.”
“You better treat each one like family.”
How do you find a balance for your own life?
Are some days better than others?
What works well for you?
What are your struggles?
