...there is an equal and opposite criticism.
Never has this been more apparent than in our current political and social climate. If one person says "Masks", another says "Never a mask". If one says "yes", another says "no".
This seems to extend to all things. I told you about 2 friends who were struggling with health issues. One passed away and her death has left me reeling. It's so easy to say "what if" -- what if she had sought treatment earlier? What if the doctors did this or that? But that's too easy. It is what it is and I have to accept it.
The other friend is facing an uncertain path into dementia, which can be so hard to diagnose and hard to treat. Is it truly dementia or is it just elderly confusion? It's a hard road for her children who have made lives for themselves far away. They want what is best for her, but what path will that be?
I've come to the conclusion that we can all only operate from knowledge and love and hope we've made the right choice. We won't know for sure until events unfold, and maybe our knowledge was faulty. But if our love was there, we truly did try to do the right thing.
