How to let Your Frustrations Out
Care taking can be both rewarding and frustrating.At times you feel like the person is pulling your hair out. In order to be a good caretaker you have to keep your mind clear and without hurting the mind of the person you’re caring for.
What Not To Do
When you are a caretaker there are times you ask them to do something and they won’t do it for you. You may think if you raise your voice that may emphasize it and they may do it for you. Think again. What you are doing is you are letting out your frustrations out on the person you are caring for. When you let the frustrations out on the person you are caring for you are hurting them. When you hurt them you hurt yourself. But you are human and you need a way of letting it out. This is what you can do.
What To Do
Go away from the person you are caring for and get a chair and a newspaper. Take the newspaper and roll it up length wise so it is like a baseball bat. Take the paper and start hitting the chair and start to talk whether it is raising you voice saying what you wanted to say to the person you are caring for until you feel good inside yourself. When you feel good inside yourself you may stop. You just let everything out and no one was hurt.
