Hello, I was wondering if I could get some help navigating through making a decision.
C – Dad said “You can come home and help me next week or you don’t have to. Mom may just need help to give the medicine.”
To be a good, helpful daughter
Spend the week with my family
Not to feel guilty about not helping with him
Not want to:
I don’t really want to spend time with my dad during the week
I don’t want to be the one to give him the medicine
Be able to work in a quiet space
It’s not really my responsibility to take care of him (even though I feel like I should help)
I feel guilty because I feel like I should help out my dad just like my other two siblings did. When I ask myself why, it’s because then I’ll feel like I was a good, caring daughter. Right now, it’s hard for me to make a decision about staying to help him or going back home because I feel like either way I’ll feel guilty. Guilty for going home or guilty for not honoring what I want, maybe even resentful. But then would I regret not being there if something happens down the line?
