It isn’t whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up. ~ Vince Lombardi
~ Susan Says: When you have a rough day caring for your loved one with cancer, or think you maybe could have handled something differently, don’t be discouraged. You are going through a new experience. It isn’t always clear what to do. Don’t be hard on yourself.
No one is perfect. Take a cleansing breath and move on and try again. Your loved one will probably understand. If he or she doesn’t seem to understand, simply explain how you feel and that this is new for you. More than likely, your loved one will understand.
The important thing, as Vince Lombardi said, is to get back up and move on. You have bigger things to be concerned about, right? If you are feeling bad, remember, you are learning from this experience. And learning is a good thing!
