What is a tenacious heart?
Doing whatever it takes to achieve a goal. Someone who is very stubborn.
Those are all definitions of being tenacious. I have been called tenacious many times in my life, as far back as high school, I know. One of my core beliefs is "over, under, around, or through." There are some things that we must not give up on. That's hard, but so is knowing which things in life we need to make that important. When it comes to caregiving, I believe it's that important to love and respect yourself and the person you care for. This usually means changing beliefs, behaviors, and learned reactions. This change is not just to protect your loved one. It is to protect your heart, too.
