Caregiver

June 10, 2019

“Take care of yourself” they said
But I didn’t know how
To be
That selfish.

“Like on a plane with a dependant” they said
“And the oxygen masks drop down,
Put yours on first;
That’s being responsible.”

Alone,
By the summer lake,
I feel the breeze.

    As a caregiver, you’re wired to put everyone else first! Practicing self-care was one of the hardest tasks during my caregiving journey! Thank you for your post! I really enjoyed it!!
