This disease, seeing someone you love disappear…can break your heart… wide open. Seeing anyone you suffer does. This made me cry… I am proud to be the the ambassador of The Living Cornerstone Alzheimer’s (TLC) Homes.
Understanding how the elderly suffer, helped heal my very troubled relationship with my father. Once I understood that he was just human, dying….and it is my job to open my heart to him…. That realization changed everything and made letting go of him easier once he passed years later.
I have no regrets. Nothing was left unsaid. It is a lesson I carry with me wherever I go and with everyone I meet. Nothing is left unsaid….ever. Forget pride, ego and years of wounding…show empathy instead.
That’s how I found peace.
