Our compassionate, empathetic caretaker. This is our heart. Our love. Our deep connections to others. Sadly when we’ve been hurt, this part of us can get scared and shrink away. Other times, this side of us takes over so much we find ourselves getting walked on. Balancing the Nurturer is done through learning healthy boundaries.
My Nurturer was constantly in play while raising 3 children on my own from the time I was 20 years old. I was always caring for others. I kept finding myself in relationships where I was always caring for the person I was with. Always putting their needs ahead of mine. My Nurturer didn’t know healthy boundaries. I didn’t know how to ask for what I wanted. I didn’t even know what I wanted.
Through learning healthy boundaries, I am able to love and care for those close to me without feeling depleted. I can be an open space for my clients when they need to unload the weight on their shoulders. I can show up in full energy caring for others while still caring for myself. I check in regularly on my self care by tapping into my inner GODDESS
