The Actual Situation Is Way Diffferent From Reading It
For example we read a lot of messages that are supposed to hit our heartstrings and emotions. How to care for our elderly parents and how to be understanding when they are forgetful, cranky and so on and so forth. I bet a lot of us has seen that video and read the articles posted on Facebook. Makes us teary eyed and we promise ourselves we won't do it.
But when the actual time comes, it is much harder to do. We are also human and we don't have the patience of a saint. No matter how hard we try, we get irritated . It is easy to say we will care and we will understand. The problem who will be there to understand you? To help you?
We want to but it is hard to do it. We can only do so much and be as patient as we can.
In the end you are the one they blame. They will say you did not do your best. How can they know when they were not there? Do you think they would have done better?
Just my thoughts from someone living the actual situation.
