“Care-giving is about us. It is how the marginalized people whom we serve see us. Before concerning ourselves further with the needs of those we serve, we should pause for a moment and look at ourselves. If change is to come, it has to start with us. We have to reflect on the basic values and care-giving practices that might be quite different from what we are accustomed to. Instead of individualism, we have to think about companionship and community; instead of compliance, we have to focus on human engagement; instead of control, we have to think about mutual trust that love brings. We need to look at our own interactions before worrying about how to change someone else’s behavior. This self-review has to be ongoing and it needs to examine the subtlest ways that we convey who we are.”
