Finding joy is easier when we have positive connections with our loved ones.
Finding joy and contentment is easier when we have positive connections with each other. Our words and actions play a significant role in determining the quality of our loved ones' lives. Creating happy moments with my Mom was a top priority while I was caring for her. It was an elusive and challenging goal but a worthy one.
Since our mental well being also plays a significant role in their quality of life, it's crucial to guard it as if their life depends upon it. By carefully choosing our words and actions, we influence the behavior of our loved ones. If we can remain positive, we are likely to have more positive interactions. More positive interactions will lead to less stress and frustration for everyone. Who doesn't want less stress & frustration?
