Do you experience the same: doctors, nurses, friends wishing you strength? I was thinking a lot about what that should really mean. In the moment I figured out for myself some things I really need strength for.
-You need strength to accept you are going to lose a person you love. Accept that you have to carry on missing a big important part. Your daddy not protecting you anymore.
-You need strength to see the degrade of the loved person. How every day it gets a little more difficult.
-You need strength in seeing the other people who love him suffer, being sad and hopeless.
-You need strength to accept that your power is limited. Accept to get angry, extremely sensitive, emotional, sad and sometimes even happy too.
-Need strength in saying there is a point you cannot help anymore.
-You need strength to understand you have to respect your limits. If you cross the borders of the possible, you harm yourself.
-You need power and strength to take at a certain point the decision that unless your loved one is sick- you still have a healthy body and mind. You need strength to keep responsible for your own.
-You need power to say goodbye for some days knowing that this is a life-risking message for the sick one.
-You need power to accept that if you leave the room and come back your loved one might not recognize you anymore.
-Need strength not to lose hope.
-Need strength to convince me that this makes sense and one day you will understand.
-Need strength to accept there is no guilt.
