Are You Confusing Pity for Love in Your Relationships?

By Alan Robarge

Are you confusing pity for love? Are you trying to prove your worth by loving someone else's brokenness? What are other, healthier ways to create relationships besides this pity-as-love dynamic?

On this video, Alan Robarge, Relationship Coach, talks about using the pity-as-love approach to prove our worth in relationship.

We try to guarantee some longevity of relationship by making ourselves needed.

We don't trust that we are enough or worthy of love as we are so therefore assign ourselves a job of care-taking our partners brokenness.

This situation usually creates resentment and feeling burned out.

The Pain Principle - Teal Swan

By Teal Swan

In this episode, Teal Swan exposes what she calls ‘the pain self’.

She explains that the pain self is like a container contains anything of ‘yours’ that is painful.

It contains all of the personas within you that are in pain as well as all of the painful memories, fears, all of the painful thoughts, all of the painful beliefs, all of the painful emotions, all of the pain in your embodiment.

Teal Swan says that we spend our entire life, every single minute, trying to get out of our pain self and trying to get rid of it. She then goes on to explain why this approach doesn’t work and what would work instead.

Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader. She offers perspective on a wide range of topics including relationships, anxiety, meditation, shadow work, the law of attraction, The Completion Process, healing, PTSD, emotions and spirituality.

This video is a talk By Prof. Cheelu Chandran on 8 February 2017. Topic "The Impostor Syndrome". This is part of the HE LP Talk series at HELP, Health Education Library for People, the worlds largest free patient education library.

This syndrome usually refers to high achieving individuals who are unable to internalise their achievements and have a fear of appearing as a fraud.But this can be easily applied to our everyday lives. We are conditioned to believe that we are not scheduled for greatness and that life is a real struggle. This has led us to exist in stagnation and fear. It has taken us away from our authentic selves, thereby creating an impostor in its place. This talk will enable you to become aware and bring out the difference between and an bring about an understanding between the false impostor state of mind and your authentic being.
