You may be trying to insulate yourself from the changed world.
Can you deny that the world changes?
The past is not lost; it exists with memories in the “present”however we can lose the future by denial of change.
Helping loved ones to cope with change their future is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to the world.
Without infrastructure we do not have the necessary physical support to “live the dream.” Without caregiving we do not have the necessary spiritual integrity to enjoy life.
