  • Feeling Taken for Granted as a Caregiver

    Being a caregiver for a loved one can be such a challenging role. You love them and absolutely want what is best for them, but sometimes you can feel taken for granted.

    I have found when I start feeling resentful and unappreciated, the best thing for me to do is step back and evaluate myself. Have I had any time to myself lately? Have I gotten adequate rest? Have I set boundaries and stuck to them?

    Often, it isn’t until I blow up that my family even knows how I’m feeling. Instead of bottling things up until we explode, it is best to address issues as they occur.

    If possible, take some time to recharge today. What helps you when you are feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated?
