EP 35 | Dana and Kim | Rescue Fantasy
"WHEN YOU GO LOOKING FOR RESCUE, YOU END UP TRAPPED IN YOUR OWN WEAKNESS” Dana and Kim discuss a common relationship issue called; Rescue Fantasy”.  This is where rescuers and victims often find each other. Rescuers often fail to realize what price tag they are unconsciously attaching to their help in order to make themselves feel important and worthy of love. Rescuers have trouble knowing when to say no. This behavior also distracts the rescuer from focusing on their own needs and self-worth. This role also has crippling effects for the victim as well.
