To be a caregiver, for me, means to be a willing participant in your child’s care, the person who takes care of the needs of a child, and that person who, in turn, cares for the child.
While one can say that being a caregiver to a child is a very important role, being a caregiver to your child isn’t always a fun or rewarding one. The best caregiving relationships are built on compromise. It’s important to make sure your partner knows that you both care about what your child’s needs are. You need to be able to talk about your concerns, share your hopes, and get each other to share their personal thoughts and feelings about the situation.
For many years, we have struggled with this idea of “caregiving” as a job. We’ve all probably had bosses who told us to put our kids to bed, not to brush our teeth, not to do their laundry, not to do their homework.
The problem is that we’re all caregivers to other people. We all care about our kids, we all care about our house, we all care about our jobs. We all care about other people. And we don’t care to a great extent about what we are taking care of.
For many of us, this has been the struggle with caring for our elderly parents. We dont know how to be a parent, and we dont know how to be a caregiver. We dont know how to meet the needs of all the people we care about. We dont know how to stay sane in the face of the chaos that comes with caregiving.
So we get into this whole “I dont care about my health” thing and that’s where it gets interesting. We tend to put ourselves in our own head and pretend that there is nothing wrong with caring for our health. But in reality, we are very much in the head of the person who has the health problems. I know a lot of me to care about my health, but I know a lot of others who dont care for their health.
So we are in the head of the person who has the health problems. The person in the head doesn’t care. The person in the head is a liar. There is no truth in the words “I dont care about my health.” We care about our health because we have self-awareness and we know that we are not a liar. We are in the head of the person who has the health problems.
A person who is not a liar is a person who knows himself. A person who is not in the head is in the head. But by the same token, a person who is in the head is not in the head. It’s as simple as that.
The only person who is not in the head is a liar, as we learned in class.
This is a great quote for all caregivers, because in many cases the person being cared for is not in the head. The person being cared for is in the head because they don’t know who they are or what their purpose is. In fact, most people have a “gift” that they think will come in handy for whatever task they are assigned. For instance, maybe a child is being cared for at the hospital. The child is a person in a coma.
