I used to be a fabulous ‘rescuer’, I was full of advice, help and running to do things for others. This is often touted as a great virtue, but in reality it is not. What was underlying this helping, was my need to be loved, respected, admired. It did not come from a pure intent and it was often not help that was asked for. It was actually all about me, & I’m sure quite often irritating to others, not to mention totally overwhelming my energy reserves. I worked long and hard to heal this behaviour and for the most part I have, however I have noticed that of late it has been creeping back in.
I went to work yesterday in a garden where my client has newly broken ribs, other ailments & a diagnosis that this is going to get worse not better, my challenge was to be supportive, helpful, but only if asked for & only if it was within my energy levels to do so. Creating an environment that is ‘healthy’ for both of us. Interdependent not codependent.
When someone is in great need it can be a challenge to stay within our boundaries, it is also the best time to see how much we have actually healed. (Should this have been one of your issues of course.)
Well a new lesson today. These folks are farmers and what I learnt today is they are flexible, adaptive and take care of their own needs. Go figure eh, people that work with the land & forces of nature. So no help was asked for and none offered, a healthy day for all. I did what I came to do, they had procured the help they need & interdependence was present, nice.
