Caregiving is hard. Sometimes we just need some positive caregiver quotes to help us get through the day.
Why Positive Quotes Help
Ever wonder why you can look at a positive phrase and feel better? After all, all the stresses you have are still there. Nothing’s changed, yet you feel better.
The appeal could be in the words themselves. A well-written phrase can strike your heart and stay in your head.
The call to action in quotes can give you energy. This happens through quotes that use parallel construction. A famous example would be John F. Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
There is a coaching factor to motivational quotes. They cheer you on, they say you can do it, and that they believe in you. There’s an incentive to achieve those goals so that you don’t let the owners of the quotes down.
