There’s a flip side to helping others, and that’s the rescuer.

Very often if we are addicted to helping others, what we are actually wanting is to be rescued ourselves. We also want to be seen as good, and receive love and loyalty from our efforts.

Of course, this backfires especially when the person doesn’t actually want help. Instead, they may feel the opposite or take your love and attention and give nothing in return. It’s a double whammy of depletion. The energy you gave and the lack of return leave you stuck and small. And when you have no energy left to follow your heart you’re in trouble. The answer is to turn inwards and bravely become your own hero.

If this is resonating with you, send me a PM. I’ve got you.

Love Sky 💕
