Well, my relative told me off for sleeping too late. Not only that, but I complain - A LOT. She hates it when I give my elder an attitude whenever I submit to my demands.
Though I resolve to sleep at least 11 PM or earlier starting tonight, I still resent myself for always acting as if I'm babying her. I feel like each day, taking care of her is emotionally like taking care of a baby. I have what I call a "Caillou mindset."
If you have watched the show CAILLOU, you'll understand. For those who don't, the titular protagonist whines when he doesn't get his way in the first season. For instance, when he was banging on the drum, his mother admonished him to stop. But he JUST WANTS TO PLAY. Golly, do I ever feel like him too, despite the criticisms regarding him as a total brat next to Dora Winifred Read and Angelica Pickles.
Well, I have EFT, guided meditations, exercise (including Oxycise!), and prayer to curb the complaints. (And sleeping earlier would help me lots. I also have to save money on buying a recorder to ease stress as playing a musical instrument does so.)
But what else should I do to bend over backwards for my elder and do it while warding off the "Caillou mindset?"
