So in response to the Global Scream one woman replied that she believed in being positive, calm and cultivating acceptance rather than anger ,and will give her husband a hug rather than scream.....so I've been thinking about this and realized: after voicing many of my responses internally. This woman has no idea what my situation is, how sick my husband is, how draining, irritating, irrational, enraging and difficult he is, what our financial situation is; our supports; if we have family,how our own health is; or even how much of a relationship did we have with the person we are caring for. We all must remember to remember not to generalize. All of our situations are unique, different, trying or not in our own way. There is no right way to behave! I have acceptance but my acceptance is of my own reactions to an insane situation.
Nobody is trying to be angry; nobody is trying not to try harder. I believe we are all Saints to even be attempting to do what professionals are trained and paid for and to do it year after year after year while we are aging and spending down our savings in a climate of runaway inflation. This is a rant rather than a question, but it is Saturday post scream and I needed that.
