Give up blame

"To have no challenges in our lives is to stagnate," Kathy Juline.

The second step in handling crisis according to author Jeffrey Rossman, is to erase all blame. To do this one needs to: forgive, not be taken advantage of, and decide to release anger and resentment. It is also important to learn from previous experience and to forgive ourselves.

All of these suggestions can apply to living with dementia. Certainly, living with dementia is a challenge, and we can choose whether to have that challenge improve us or imprison us. For many years I have noticed that difficult experiences either make us bitter or better people. What is your choice?
