You Host the Combination
Hosting a Combination Cuckoo is the most common of the 4 types. Check out detailed descriptions of The Relationship Cuckoo and The Self-Inflicted Cuckoo.
Most days, you are trapped in a vortex of unhealthy relationships, toxic thinking, and self-sabotaging behavior occurring simultaneously. You really invest yourself deeply both in your relationships and your work – whether it be a career, ministry, or a passion project.
You are high achieving, self-motivated, and your own worst critic. You put a great deal of pressure on yourself to do all things well and often feel as though you haven’t done enough.
You’re intelligent, conscientious, and hard-working; you do it all. You have an intense inner drive to succeed in business, family matters, and community-related endeavors. The truth is, underneath, you battle insecurity, doubt, and fear.
From the outside looking in, you’ve got it
together or you’re living your dream.
What people don’t see is that you are burned out, fatigued, and struggle with frequent bouts of depression and are anxious most of the time. Or, perhaps you don’t spend as much time as you want with the people closest to you – or even those within the four walls of your home.
The good news is, you no longer have to go through life depleted and tied up in non-reciprocal, lopsided relationships that drain you. Identifying this invisible enemy is the first step to healing and freedom.
Rather than being driven by your performance, you can be guided by your purpose. Growth isn’t always pleasant, nor is the healing process pain-free, but neither is living with a cuckoo in your life that creates unnecessary suffering day after day.
It’s time to make room in your nest for your unique purpose, “eggs,” to hatch and no longer be thwarted by the cuckoo in your life.
