  • Healthy Caregiver Relationships Can Be Imperfect

    My latest column dives into what it means a healthy caregiver relationship entails.

    Receiving support can be a more complex emotional and mental process for some personalities than for others. However, that doesn’t make it any more acceptable to put the frustration of our situations on our caregivers.

    We need to be fair and accept our caregivers’ shortcomings and capabilities. Be realistic about how much energy someone can give us in addition to their lives and passions. We must be honest about reality versus perfection. We are not any more worthy of compassion than our caregivers.

    Relationships are imperfect, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be healthy as well. A happy and healthy relationship is not one without problems; it involves a commitment between two people to work through issues.

    In your experience, has expectations led to healthy or unhealthy relationships?
