Living by the “two ears one mouth – applied in that proportion” principle is not always easy!
Sometimes that will mean listening and perhaps not speaking at all, or maybe even not joining in including walking away, if you can only say negative or hurtful things.
It’s our individual responsibility to control how we treat or speak to others; dementia does not make that easy, but it’s not often an excuse.
Lessons in progress…
Resilience can be learned.
Optimism is worth working on.
Kindness is imperative.
Without it, too often you either hurt others, or they don’t want to be with you.
