My husband dinked his knee (patellar tendinitis) and I caught some creepy kind of bug. It’s been a toss up the last few days as to who has felt worse. We’ve both tried not to take our aches and pains out on each other. All in all we’ve done well. There have been a few apologies, but mostly we cared for each other, making it as easy as we could given our various discomforts.
How do you handle it when you are sick, tired, or feeling yucky (for whatever reason)?
Definitely you want to do a little self care and ask for what you need (there’s some real wisdom in that), but do take the time to separate the yuck from the people in your life.
I think basically it is about choice and practice. You choose to act kindly and reasonably, pick a few areas to work on and then you practice until it becomes second nature. Just one more generous life skill to learn.
