A caretaker takes care of others.
A Nurturer takes care of oneself.
The words seems effortless however it is not easy to decide what path you choose to take.
When we are ruled by shoulds which generally come from our mind, the caretaker route becomes the go to activity.
When we allow our hearts to rule, then the nurturer route becomes effortless.
Sometimes, the clues to being a gold starred caretaker come from being described as perfect and too nice. Also, you may feel resentful and angry that nobody notices how much you do and no one does nice things for you. Or you may have chronic health or relationship problems. We generally have an amazing feedback system in our lives when things need to be readjusted.
Which one are you?
