I think one of the biggest misconceptions that seems to be glorified on TV and in movies….is that when our world is turned upside down, that the rest of the world or at the very least our friends and family will stop and focus on our needs!
That is not how it works in the real world, and what is more, it is not fair for us to expect that!
Their life is theirs. They are not being selfish, inattentive, or selfish. They are living their lives ….as they should the best way that they can.My challenge, my lesson and the lesson for those of us with terminal illness, especially those of us with chronic, long term illness is we need to continue living our lives with unconditional love for ourselves and strength for them.....when they are with us and when they are not. It is not easy,
but, oh my... it is deliciously worth it.
