Guilt of picking my POA #the PERSON U TRUST THE MOST
Im having all my documents made up, naming my only child, a son, as my POA. I think i might have to get a safety deposit box to keep all these documents hidden and safe. I also have to find a life insurance policy i can afford and keep secret. It will name my son as the beneficiary. When we spoke about it, he wanted to take on the responsibility bc he didn’t want my health in anyones hands. I told him I would tell everyone and smooth things over so that he didn’t have to deal with everyone’s animosity that r going to get stuck in their feelings (I know my life partner will feel some type of way when he finds out I didn’t pick him) but my son told me that he wanted to keep it secret and he would deal with everyone after i pass or am incapacitated. Its always been my son and i. Everytime he and i blink, its seems like the people in our lives change but our constant is each other!!!!! He is the only person I trust 100 percent!
My guilt stems from not picking certain people. And another part of my guilt is that i picked my son concerning the weight of having to make these decisions.
#is this too much to put on one’s offspring?
