I'm one of those huggie people who wants to give the entire world a big ol' hug and make everything better.
And some people don't even want things to be better. Yes, unfortunately that is true. Some people are chronic complainers and if they didn't have anything to complain about, they'd be all out of sorts, and wouldn't know what to do with themselves.
At one time in my life I was around too many 'down' people and it really brought me down being with them. I did manage to figure out what was happening to me and made sure I was around more positive and happy people.
If a person doesn't look after themselves first and foremost as important, they can't expect anyone else to. Nor can they be ready to look after anyone else in a positive manner.
Have you ever heard the phrase,
Wow! Do you know how important that phrase is???
If a Caregiver gets run down physically, or emotionally, well who can they help?
A Caregiver needs to look after Number ONE (themselves).
Get the sleep you need.
Get the food you need.
Get the support you need.
Look after yourself first.
Take the time to refresh resources.
Always accept smiles and sunshine into your life.
