DO you apologize for or hide being a caregiver?

WHY do so many of us do this? (Hint: it’s not your fault!)

HOW do we empower ourselves and others to stop?

Given the time, attention, care, joy, pride, money, energy, love, etc. that we pour into the caregiving aspect of our lives - you would think we would be shouting it from the rooftops.  And sometimes we do (YAY)!  But sometimes it’s really hard.  And sadly this habit isn't just hurting us as individuals, it’s long affected the caregiver community.

Emily Oster, an economist at Brown University, wrote in her recent article in The Atlantic, "End the Plague of Secret Parenting": "Put simply, mothers and fathers ought to come clean about the nature of their lives. We can’t fix problems that we pretend don’t exist; we can’t improve the lot of parents at work if we pretend we aren’t parents."

Friends, I hope you will join me in making this the year to CELEBRATE CAREGIVING in our lives!  Be the change you want to see in the world - for those you care for and those who care for others alongside you.

Most importantly, this is a warm, safe space for you to feel heard and supported.  Let us hold space for you and all you are carrying - as we learn and grow and commune together!

Warmly,

Manda Bliss
