Caring to a fault



A client recently told me she cares to a fault.


What does that really mean?


I suppose it means caring without boundaries, and in turn, getting hurt by the people you're trying to help.


Though, there are two parts to getting hurt: it happening and you're allowing it.


By allowing it, I mean at a subconscious level of participation.


If you dig into this notion, the overcaring person is generally driven by fear-based emotions, such as shame, guilt, and anxiety.


They're using the opportunity to help as a way of gaining attention, feeling needed, and increasing self-value.


More often than not, it's a cry for love, and it rarely works because all love emanates from within.


If you can't receive self-love, you certainly can't accept other love, and you just may end up caring, caring to a fault.



"Immature love says I love you because I need you. Mature love says I need you because I love you."
