On EarthAngelTV, I interviewed Roberta Smart, a beautiful Earth Angel, Coach and Comedienne. During this interview, (which was so much fun to do!) she hit upon something that most Earth Angels suffer from. And the name she gave it was – Angelic Compulsive Disorder. ACD. It is the compulsion that Earth Angels have to help others, to make other people’s lives better, and to be of service, even when it is detrimental to their own health and wellbeing.
Roberta came back on EarthAngelTV later to talk a bit more about ACD, and she has now put together a course for Earth Angels who feel they have ACD and wish to learn how to control it and take better care of themselves. You can find out more about the course here, and please do join Roberta’s Facebook group to connect with others in a similar situation.
Though helping others is an inbuilt programme for most Earth Angels, it really isn’t necessary for them to run themselves into the ground for the sake of everyone else. So please, if you feel like you are exhausting yourself to be of service to others, take a step back, say no to requests for help and put your own needs first. At least until you have regained your health and energy. Because you are important, and so is your wellbeing.
