At least for me, I want to do the most possible in all situations, and that could vary from day to day even!

Good communication is key in striking that balance.

I completely agree. I read posts and look at pictures and am amazed at how many things the big people here DO. I am less mobile and by nature am lazy and spoiled, so I tend to take advantage of any opportunity to rest or walk less.

And I think that it is worth saying again -

COMMUNICATION AND CONSIDERATION matter the most in ALL relationships.
