Taking Care

Caring for the Caretakers
* Be gentle with yourself. Remind yourself you are an enabler, not a magician.

* We cannot change anyone else. We can only change how we relate to them.

* Find a hermit spot. Use it daily.

* Give support, encouragement, and praise. Learn to accept it when you can.

* We are bound to be helpless at times. Admit it without shame.

* Change your routine and your tasks when you can.

* On the way home focus on a good thing that happened during the day.

* Be a resource to yourself.

* If you never say NO, what is your YES worth?
