Living Well Under Difficult Circumstances

caring-for-spouseCaring for a spouse is difficult under the best of circumstances. But if your spouse has made irresponsible decisions that have put you in financial peril, is in failing health, and refuses to take care of him/herself, how do you avoid slipping into an abyss of despair or living in a state of perpetual anger?

I recently reconnected with a dear friend recently whose life is not going well right now. We spent a lot of time talking, and she decided that she just needs to learn how to live well within her circumstances.

How do you do that? It isn’t easy. It takes a tremendous amount of mental and emotional energy, and if you decide to do it, you won’t do it once and be done with it. You will have to do it every day– sometimes several times a day.
