Compassion: Learning to Care for Oneself and Others

Compassion: Learning to Care for Oneself and Others | Accountability vs plan control |
Without self-care and self-compassion we cannot be effective caregivers for extended period of times. Self-care can include joining a support group, meditation or other mind-body class, a spiritual support-group or other self-care approaches.


Cancer does not solely affect individuals. It affects the larger community, which consists of families, friends, neighbors and coworkers. Witnessing a loved one overcoming or struggling with cancer may foster feelings of joy or sorrow. These deep emotions are rooted in our heart's ability to have compassion. The Latin for compassion -- "com-pati" -- means, "to suffer with." Consequently, family members, particularly patients' spouses/partners, "suffer with." When caregivers witness their loved one hurting from cancer and its treatment, they hurt as well.


In fact, our own research reveals caregivers experience symptoms such as psychological distress, fatigue, and sleep disturbances just as much or even more than patients. The first step in compassion is often the feeling of empathy toward those who suffer, which in turn produces the genuine desire to help. Empathy, as in being in someone else's shoes, without progress to true compassion can be detrimental in the long run for the caregiver.

This article really touches on how important it is to support caregivers just as much as the person struggling with the disease. It takes a lot of compassion to be a long term caregiver. It also hones in on what caregivers go through, and helps to understand it in a way. It simply reminds us that more than the patient get hurt.

You have heard, love yourself so others can love you to.  Hand in hand, is take care of yourself, so you can take care of others.


if your bucket doesn't have much in it, what will you have to put in the buckets of the people who really need you, and depend on you.


The little things, are the big things.  eating right, getting quality rest, plenty of movment, and "Zen Time" (relax meditate, pray, think, just be.)


Self care among caregivers is so challenging, as we just keep-keeping on with little regard for our own welfare.  At somepoint that candle that has been burning at both ends will have nothing to fuel the light, and the light will go out.


Take care of yourself.  You are worth it.  The is a great article about how we can do just that.
