What many of us do not realize when we begin our caregiving journey is that we unconsciously believe we can fix those we love and care for and everything around them. While this is a powerful desire, to begin with, it has pros and cons that help and hurt us. When reality hits home that fixing someone is rarely possible, it can be both painful and a relief.
