When we were growing up, we were the ones being taken care of by our parents. Even as we approach our thirties or forties, it’s possible we still look to them for guidance or wisdom. However, there comes a point in our lives when the roles may switch. And believe us when we say, it is not an easy transition for anyone - so don’t be so hard on yourself. It is a lot of responsibility, and it can be made even harder when you have children, a job, or a spouse.
