The rescuer is an archetype that a lot of people can relate to. In my workshops, I’ve met people who will often comment, “I am such a rescuer. I am such a rescuer.” And many of those people will say, “I’m burned out from this rescuing pattern.”
The first thing I want to say is Thank God for the rescuer. Think of how dependent we are on rescuers.
The rescuer archetype, however, requires refinement. Rescuing is not a lifestyle. It is an act of empowerment that we are blessed with when we need it.
Thank you for listening. I do enjoy chatting about these archetypes, even for this brief time. I hope you enjoy it too.
