Six Things to Stop Settling For According to Human Design

3 minute read

One of the things I love most about human design is how actionable it is. There is so much we can learn about ourselves and begin to take action on based on our human design type alone, including where we may be settling for things that do not make us feel our best.

So today, I want to share six things to stop settling for based on your human design type.


  1. Commitments and work that feel continually frustrating, depleting, and exhausting.
  2. Relationships that leave you more drained than fulfilled and satisfied.
  3. Commitments where you put your own satisfaction on the back-burner and put everyone else’s needs and desires above your own.
  4. Commitments and relationships where you feel like your energy is being taken advantage of rather than honored and valued.
  5. Opportunities you’re saying yes to only because you think you should or because you’re afraid nothing else will come, even when your gut is telling you no.
  6. Days full of frustration and exhaustion.


  1. Relationships where you don’t feel seen and valued.
  2. Relationships that feel unbalanced and where you’re doing all the question-asking rather than sharing yourself and feeling seen, too.
  3. Work commitments that require you to do, do, do and that will eventually lead to burnout.
  4. Work commitments where your perspective is not valued as the true gift it is and is not invited in nor acted upon.
  5. Invitations that don’t feel like a full-bodied yes and where you don’t feel authentically recognized and seen.
  6. Days that are full of doing and absent of rest simply because it’s what you think you should do. 

Manifesting Generators

  1. Commitments you’re sticking with or saying yes to simply because you think you should or because you’re afraid nothing else will come, not because they are the most aligned use of your energy.
  2. Commitments that often feel frustrating and exhausting.
  3. Relationships that leave you feeling more drained than fulfilled, energized and satisfied.
  4. A linear career path rather than a path that embraces the multi-passionate, ever-evolving creative you are.
  5. A path chosen simply to make sense to others.
  6. Days full of frustration, exhaustion, and boredom.


  1. Commitments where your disruptive and transformative energy is not honored and valued.
  2. Days where you feel pressure to do, do, do all day long and don’t give yourself permission to reset and recharge alone.
  3. Relationships where your power is not embraced and respected.
  4. Attempting to do it all yourself without allowing in support.
  5. People-pleasing and prioritizing being liked by others over expressing yourself authentically and courageously.
  6. Days where you feel disempowered, confined and angry.


  1. Spaces that don’t feel good to be in, and people that don’t feel particularly good to be around.
  2. Opportunities where your perspective is not treasured and you don’t feel free to honor the ebbs and flows of your energy.
  3. Attempting to fit in and be like everyone around you rather than embracing your uniqueness.
  4. Opportunities that you’ve rushed into and stuck with, even when they’ve stopped feeling good.
  5. Opportunities that you’ve committed to based on someone else’s feelings about them.
  6. Days full of exhaustion and a feeling that you should make more happen, even when your body is asking you to rest.
