I know they always say, never to take anything personally, but really, we are human too? Today, I spent 10 hours moving their mom from the hospital a 35 day stay to an assisted living facility, and where are they? Florida, California, Georgia.
They do not call, but only to tell there mother, that she needs to stop spending all her money on that low life hired help!!!! I know that should not bother me, but really? I have two degrees, Masters in Social Work, and yes, this is what I have chosen to do in the last 12 years of my career, yes, I am 54. I spent the first 30 in Banking with my Series 7 and sold funds and bonds to High net worth customers.
Since when are caregivers "low life" or are they jealous.
This is what my husband says. Well, is she paying you "YES", Well, does she respect you and say thank you "ALWAYS" Does she talk on the phone and agree to disagree with her kids "yes", does she know that regardless you will protect her from the very ones that are blood (her children)? "YES" so, who is the that has the advantage here "ME". I love what I do, and I do not care if some in this world think it is low life, but I am sorry, my life is full of love and compassion, and I want to show the world that step by step, any one of us, can have a suit and tie on and be a corporate big wig, or we can where our REI working pants or shorts, and help out those that cannot walk, those that really mean thank you when they say it, regardless of the reason that the adult children are giving their mother a hard time. It is and she has told me this, that they do not want THEIR INHERITANCE TO DISAPPEAR TO STUPID KINDS OF WORK. Really? Well, all I can say, is this s question is full of hurt, but I thank those of you kind enough to read it, because really, there are some people that will let go of the $100,000 wage, to make a difference in this world. I will not be wealthy, but I will not be poor, and I have made a difference.
If you are an adult child and you think that you parent is wasting your inheritance money, really think about how selfish that sounds!
On the other hand, I always encourage adult children to know that if their mother or father is spending $10,000 a month, then something or someone is using them.
Have a great Father's Day.
