Sometimes we feel caught between a rock and hard place when our parents need our help. How has caring for an aging parent impacted your life and what have you learned?
Unresolved issues and family dynamics commonly impact the way we handle the cargiving years on both sides of the equation. Time and time again I've watched love prevail. It's not always easy, but if we are struggling and uncomfortable we have an opportunity to move forward in our understanding of ourselves and relationships in general. I believe we all long to love, maybe even more than we long to be loved. Clearing the debris that stands in the way of love is worth the effort, and to do so sometimes we need to complain. Sometimes complaining is just an excuse for not changing.
