The Transforming Power of Caregiving: Returning to Life after Caregiving Ends
Whether you have cared for your loved one for one year or many, when it ends, it will feel abrupt. The life and routine that have become yours, suddenly comes to an end with a finality that is painful on many levels. We face the double sorrow of the death of our loved one as well as the ending of our primary purpose and role in life. Your focus was on someone else, and the thought of shifting that focus to yourself – may be scary. Many factors go into the development of new identity after the death of a loved one. It is okay to feel inadequate, overwhelmed, and to ask for help in facing the unfamiliar. As we walk through the process of rebuilding our lives we find that life may turn out to be completely different, new, even exciting. It is important to give ourselves permission to experience these things and be willing to look toward the future.
