Episode Description

Superheroes, white knights, saviors. They are the stuff of the best storybooks, aren’t they?!? What could possibly be wrong with wanting to be a rescuer? Sadly, in personal relationships, the compulsion to rescue others or be the hero can be very damaging to both partners. The rescue itself can be from anything – unhappiness, financial chaos, substance abuse, depression, abuse, medical issues, or a wounded past. While it can be noble to help a friend or partner through such tragedies, becoming the hero can turn into a dark addiction for the rescuer. Do you feel compelled to rescue others? Or know someone in an unhealthy pattern of saving others? Listen in as Sandra and frequent guest, Georgia Dow, discuss the hidden dangers of feeling the need to rescue others and how to break free from this pattern.

There are secrets to living your best life. We have control over our destinies if we are willing to accept responsibility and learn how to evolve to our highest levels.

Turn any darkness in your world into light. Become an expert at the dance of relationships. Reach for the stars and have the success in life and love that you always dreamt of.
