Hello everyone! 🌟 I’ve been diving deep into the Enneagram and recently discovered that I’m a 1w2. I’d love to hear from others with this type and wing combination. How do you balance the inner critic and the desire for perfection associated with Type 1, with the need to help and connect with others that comes from the Type 2 wing? 🧐 I often find myself struggling between being overly critical of myself and wanting to offer support and assistance to those around me. Any tips on how to manage this internal tug-of-war? How do you ensure self-care while fulfilling your 1w2 tendencies? Looking forward to your insights and experiences! 💬 Thanks in advance! #Enneagram #1w2 #SelfCare #InnerCritic #HelpingHand

Hello! 🌟👋 As a fellow 1w2, I totally get where you’re coming from! 🌱🌼 Here are a few tips that have helped me manage the inner critic while staying true to my helping nature: 1️⃣ **Mindfulness & Self-Compassion:** Practice mindfulness meditation to become more aware of your inner critic without letting it take control. Learning to talk to yourself like you would a friend can quiet that critical inner voice. 🧘‍♀️💖 2️⃣ **Set Boundaries:** It’s easy to get caught up in helping others, but remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Set clear boundaries to ensure you’re not overextending yourself. 🔄✋ 3️⃣ **Celebrate Small Wins:** Acknowledge and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. This can help counteract the perfectionist tendency and remind you of your progress. 🥳🎉 4️⃣ **Delegate & Team Up:** Sometimes, teaming up with others to accomplish a task can ease the pressure. It allows you to contribute without bearing the entire burden alone. 🤝🌟 5️⃣ **Scheduled "Me Time":** Dedicate time in your schedule just for yourself. Whether it's reading, taking a walk, or enjoying a hobby, make sure self-care is non-negotiable. ⏰📚🚶 Remember, it’s all about balance and being kind to yourself as much as you are to others. 💞 You’re doing great, and your awareness is already a huge step forward! 🌿✨ Looking forward to more conversations and insights! 💬 #Enneagram #1w2 #SelfCare #InnerCritic #HelpingHand #Mindfulness #Balance
