You are the Caregiver!

Goal:   Help others.

Fear: Selfishness

Response to Dragon/Problem: Take care of it or those it harms

Task:  Give without maiming self or others

Gift:  Compassion, generosity

Addictions: Caretaking, codependence

 

 The ideal of the Caregiver is the perfect, caring parent—generative, loving, and attentive to noticing and developing talents and interests. The Caregiver is the creator of community that helps people feel that they belong and are valued and cared for by encouraging nurturing relationships between and among individuals and constituencies.

 

Shadow Side:

Shadow caregivers wish to maintain indefinitely the symbiotic state experienced by mother and child, devouring the growing protégé to try to keep it or make it part of his or her own self. The irony, of course, is that Shadow Caregivers devour others while also feeling devoured themselves by the caregiving roles. In fact, protégés are often driven or manipulated into doing what the Shadow Caregiver would like to be doing in an unlived life. A Shadow caregiver also may feel that s/he never gets anything back for his/her trouble. However, this type of Shadow caregiver also cannot get anything back, because s/he refuses to receive. These Caregivers may use the guilt and obligation they inspire in others to get their own way.
