Guilt is eating at me

I am feeling sincerely guilty about the fact that I did not take my client to Mass today. I would do anything for this woman, but sometimes I need to take a break, but seeing her walk into the church all alone, I felt a pang in my heart that stretched a mile wide!

You can tell that I take my responsibilities as a caregiver very seriously indeed. But, even I need to walk away for a few hours to ensure that I am fresh for the coming week.

It is certainly not that this lady is an issue, it is simply because I am a human being and if I have learned anything over the past three-and-a-half years, it is the fact that in order to take care of my clients, I have to take care of myself first and foremost.

There are times that I get too carried away with being a caregiver and I ignore the fact that I need to be true to myself. I am good at what I do, but if I burn out, how am I going to be able to show my clients each and every day that With Age Comes Respect and still be the very best that can be.
