Try to take a break for yourself. Even if it’s just an hour of reading, going for a walk or practicing some of our other self-care tips, you will feel much more restored afterwards. Try to set aside a period of time each week for you – you deserve it.
There is always someone who will be able to listen to your situation. A friend or family member you trust is a great place to start. They might not be able to give advice or solve your problems, but you’ll feel better for getting everything off your chest.
There is no shame in asking for help. You are being so strong for you and your loved one, which can be a lot to cope with on your own. If you’re struggling, or just need a listening ear, please contact one of the helplines below. You are not alone.
