“Givers need to set limits because takers rarely do.”
I say this in all of my workshops on Ayurveda: I wish I had more kapha energy. It’s probably the same way that curly haired people wish they had straight hair, or tall people wish they were shorter. We always fantasize about the beauty of being different than they are. But truly, as a Vata-Pitta, I do love my kaphas.
I don’t think I’m alone in this wish either. Kaphas are so much fun! Kapha energy is playful, uncomplicated, and open. Kaphas are loyal, funny, and thoughtful.
Of course, we all have our work we need to do. And when I was thinking about the “work” that kaphas need to do to navigate the world with ease and joy and strength, the concept of boundaries quickly came to mind.
