Diminishing your frustrations and expectations due to minor injustices is important to a caregiver.
As discussed in an earlier post, getting gratitude, you may get it, but don’t expect it!
Caregivers have such strong compassions and empathetic natures that expectations are always an issue of concern.
Because of this as caregivers we see minor injustices all around and caring for your mental well-being is very important.
The fear that comes with injustice is real and you feel you must protect your charge (the person you are caring for) and yourself.
The sad truth is you are looking at a concept that is full of illusions and misperceptions. The world is full of injustices large and small. You have seen many people receive the justice due them, while unfortunately many more seem to get away with something.
It is like things go through the cracks, it’s incredibly discouraging, however not hopeless.
You have an internal program of integrity that tells you to always seek and strive for truth and justice. These actions towards justice helps relieve the uncomfortable hurt and nagging feelings of being wronged, in spite of the eventual outcome.
By tuning into your higher self, your heart, you can take comfort and empowerment in the knowing that at some time, place or level and in whatever life time it takes, justice in some form will be served. Your task is to forgive, to diminish the fears and surrender it to your higher power. Your mental well-being will be restored and replenished so you can carry on your labors of love.
