Daily Dementia Dose: To your Naysayers and Haters

minute/s remaining

There will be naysayers and haters out there.

If you are taking care of a loved one right now, there will be family members who will be haters, or are upset, or mad at you, or say something bad about you.

It’s because you are doing a good thing.

Everytime we’re doing a good thing, a lot of people who will get mad at you. They’ll hate you for doing it.

You know why?

Because they can’t do it themselves.

So if you are taking care of a loved one right now, or you are taking care of a patient, a lot of people will get mad at you because they cannot do what you’re doing right now.

My suggestion and my challenge for you today is to keep doing what you are doing and focus on taking care of your loved ones.

Because people can say bad things about you, but they are saying that because they are behind you.

They’re trying to pull you down as a good caregiver because you’re obviously above them.

Keep doing what you’re doing.

When all is said and done, and we go back to our home in heaven, your loved one will thank you for taking care of them.
