Episode Four

Do What You Can and Outsource the Rest

In this episode of the Caregiver’s Guide to Cancer, we’re talking about the fact that you can’t do it all and need to outsource household tasks. Oh and by the way, no one really expects you to so stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Outsourcing frees up so much time and stress. 

It is my sincere hope that you learn to give yourself a little grace and start letting your friends and family help you. They want to help you! They truly do. They’re looking to you to tell them how.

 I encourage you to listen and learn how to let go of the guilt associated with outsourcing, caregiving and self care. It is sometimes hard to allow others into your house and see what’s not working. Your friends and family are not there to judge you. They are there to help you. 

We’re sharing how we started letting our network assist us. My favorite part of outsourcing is just how liberating it is.  This is coming from a self-diagnosed control freak. My best advise to you today is to outsource early and outsource often!
