I’m so glad you’re here!
Welcome to day one of Saying No to Caregiver Guilt!
In our first session, we will explore point of view, yours and your parent’s. In this exercise, you will learn:
- How you can open lines of empathetic communication — both ways!
- And how to get you and your parent’s emotional needs met.
Take 15 minutes today to read: How Do You View Your Parents and answer the questions at the end of the reading, and please feel free to print out the exercises OR start your own self-care journal to complete the writing portion of the detox.
Today’s the day to jumpstart your own self-care!
You will be one step closer to relieving dreadful and soul-crushing guilt.
I’m so glad you are here for Day 2 of the Caregiver Guilt Detox. You are on your way to creating a habit that is good for you and your loved ones!
It’s amazing how much more manageable daily challenges can feel when you look at them through a new lens, right? And knowing how to make new choices — whether in your thoughts, actions or words — makes all the difference in achieving your desired outcomes.
Today’s detox may sound a bit difficult to hear at first, but it’s important. You will learn to listen to and trust your own decision-making, ultimately having the kind of life you really want, while also respecting and supporting those around you.
Take 15 minutes today to read: Mind Your Own Business and answer the questions at the end of the reading.
