As caregivers, we sometimes encounter feelings of negativity, such as resentment, hate, anger or even fear. We might even experience mixed feelings bouncing back and forth from a negative to a positive.
Most of us don't like to admit that we can have these feelings, which may be provoked by other individuals or situations. Find time to reflect and ask yourself:
- What are some of your negative emotions that you are conscious of?
- What are some of the reasons for your negative emotions?
