It’s Different with Our Own Mom
Why are we able to support people in working with their families, and yet, have so little patience with our own family?
In today’s episode, we commiserate with a listener who sent us an email. This email in particular struck a chord with us because we struggle with the same issue!
If nurses make the worst patients, then senior care professionals make the worst adult children. Right? This is at least true for us, and we are willing to bet that it is for many of you, too.
Three key takeaways from this episode:
- Having patience for other people does not necessarily extend to our own families. It’s easy to feel triggered when we’re emotionally invested.
- Seeking assistance from outside professionals, who are not in your family, can be very helpful.
- It’s easier to give advice than it is to follow our own.
