Healing for healers

Healing for healers

I want to start a thread of people who aim to heal our healers

This may seem abstract but if you are a healer or even just empathetic you should know what I mean

We take on a lot and I feel like a lot of us don't know how bad it is not to vent it off in a productive way

I wanna change that 

We can't create shadows while clearing them

How is that helpful?

Thats not healing not truly anyway

We have to stop dismissing ourselves or we will end up needing to heal our own pains and clearing through our own shadows 

A lot can be solved by talking through issues 

So give me all you got 

My ears are open 

What ails you my friends?

What have you taken on that you regreted?

What bothers you about a certain person or situation?

Lets talk about the shadow side to healing 

People don't think there is one and thats the funny thing about shadows

They are what you don't know you don't know

We have good intentions 

Healing is supposed to be an offering 

Its this pure loving concept

but it can be draining to the healer

It can be done wrong 

It can be forced

Lets just talk about it and see what comes up

just an intuition:  watch out for trying to “rescue” people.  A couple of times I have tried to make friends by rescuing people and it didn’t work out.  I didn’t end up with a long term friend.

Rescue is a different thing though it looks the same right now

I just want to offer them an ear as it is often all they need

and I really do not mind listening to people

The hero dynamic doesn't apply the same way when I function this way regardless if you get what I mean

I would love them if they stayed broken 

I just want to be there for people if they need 

and if you think about it healing is a shared experience

It is both the person that receives the healing and the healer themselves 

who are healed

atleast thats the way i understand how to explain it 

I get something out of it too

I understand more perspectives 

I feel more connected 

I heal when they heal

I love the feeling of helpfulness

trying to match unconditional love here is a challenge but 

we can sure as hell try whats there better to do

Love the wisdom the @Scot I appreciate you looking out for me

I have seen a lot in my own life 

even had a couple people take advantage of how nice I am

I learn from every experience though try to take it in stride even though sometimes it can be painful
