“My Mind Is A Dangerous Neighborhood to Walk in Unaccompanied!”
Physical Isolation is one of the most challenging issues Caregivers face, but our thoughts become isolated, as well. In those lonely moments, our minds can play tricks on us, and take us down dark roads. Like a pilot flying through clouds without looking at instruments, we can quickly become disoriented. In those moments, we need external input …an emotional GPS, if you will …to help us regain our heading and proceed safely. We don’t need to believe everything we think!
I don’t know about you, but my mind is a dangerous neighborhood to walk in unaccompanied!
The book of Proverbs tells us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and to not lean on our own understanding. You know why that’s in there? Because we lean on our understanding!!
Serving as a caregiver is simply too difficult to do alone. Don’t lean on your understanding, ask for guidance and help. Don’t believe everything you think!
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
