How to Stop Being Over Responsible

Are you a person who is or has been over-responsible for others? The state of your consciousness is your ultimate responsibility and determines what kind of world you create. Eckhart Tolle

As A Child Did You Feel:

  • Alone
  • Unloved
  • Unsafe
  • Unseen
  • Unheard

As a child, did you take on the responsibility as parental caretaker? Was your mother or father too weak to take on their role? Were they self-absorbed (needed all caring and attention for themselves)?

You then became the mother or father for your family. Do you still carry this burden in relationships with your family and friends?

Being Over-Responsible

Over ResponsibleResponsibility – the ability or power to respond to a person or situation. This ability to respond is often based on past family conditioning. We respond from unconscious emotional wounds of childhood.

Do you still feel over-responsible for how others feel? Are you taking care of others needs all the time? Are you ignoring your own needs? Do you even know what your needs are?

Are you stuck in codependent patterns or the Victim, Persecutor, Rescuer/Enabler triangle?

How to Stop Being Over-Responsible

You can throw off the yoke of over-responsibility. You can step out of the toxic swamp of over responsibility and the burden of suffering.

Do you know how to nurture yourself? Do you have the ability to set healthy personal boundaries?

Take back your own power. This means to set boundaries with others. Learn to say “No” when any demand feels no longer right. This is self-responsibility – self-empowerment. Be true to yourself.

Learn to respond to what feels 100% right within you.

Stay empowered in the flow of life.

How others respond to you is no longer your responsibility.

Self-Responsibility and Self-Empowerment

As an empath or extra sensitive person do you take on others energies and emotions? Do you wind up processing others energies and emotions within you? Do others suck on your vital force i.e. energy vampires?

We experience self-responsibility through self-empowerment. Learn to use outer events, energies and people as mirrors. Rather then blaming or judging others we use the outer events as an inner mirror. We check if something similar resides within us.

For example, if someone expresses anger toward us, we can observe within if we also carry anger. Now we have a choice to observe and embrace our anger with compassion. We hold it like a child in a loving embrace. This practice done regularly will dissolve and heal an unconscious emotional wound.

We practice self-responsibility, empowerment and nurturing ourselves. This is by healthy conscious choices in the present moment.

How to Take Self-Responsibility Healing Our Emotional Wounds

  • Focus your awareness on what you feel inside your body
  • Accept and be with the feeling or sensation in the present moment
  • Beware of analyzing, judging or thinking, continue being the observer
  • Observe the emotional pain. Also be the witness – “the silent watcher”
  • Stay with the present moment. Be aware of the emotional pain and also being the Witness. This witness represents your Higher Conscious Presence.
  • Presence heals.
