Do not wait. You can be the one who responds to a caregiver’s plea, the one who reaches out with encouragement to a caregiver who needs your friendship. You’ll know the one.
It feels good to discover others have been angry or sad, felt similar guilt, made the same mistakes and wondered about the same unanswered questions. Let them know it is OK!
