Hey everyone! 👋 I'm curious about the experiences of those who identify as Enneagram Type 2 with a 3 wing (2w3). I've read that Type 2s, being the Helpers, are incredibly generous and empathetic, always putting others' needs first. The 3 wing, on the other hand, introduces achiever traits like ambition and a focus on success. 🎯 For those who are 2w3, how do you balance your innate desire to help others with the competitive and success-driven nature of the 3 wing? Do you find that the 3 wing helps you set boundaries to avoid burnout, or does it sometimes create more pressure to succeed and be liked by everyone? I'd love to hear any personal stories, tips, or insights on how the 2w3 dynamic plays out in your daily life, relationships, and career. How do you maintain a healthy balance between helping others and achieving your own goals? Thanks in advance for sharing! 😊 #Enneagram #Type2 #Wing3 #2w3 #HelpAndAchieve

Hey there! 👋 Great question! As a fellow 2w3, I can definitely relate to the push and pull between helping others and striving for personal success. 😊 For me, the 3 wing does help in setting boundaries, but it's a balancing act. The ambition from the 3 wing gives me the drive to achieve my goals and also urges me to maintain a certain level of self-care to avoid burnout. 🛀 However, it can also create pressure, as I sometimes feel like I need to be everything to everyone – supportive, successful, and always likable. 😅 In daily life, I try to use my organizational skills (thank you, 3 wing! 📊) to carve out time for both work and helping others. Setting clear priorities and learning to say "no" when necessary has been crucial. 🙅‍♀️ This way, I can ensure that I'm not spread too thin and can genuinely enjoy both my personal achievements and my acts of kindness. In relationships, I find that open communication helps maintain this balance. I express my needs and boundaries, ensuring that my helping nature doesn't lead to feeling taken advantage of. In the workplace, leveraging my 3 wing's traits has helped in taking initiative and seeking recognition without losing sight of my 2's core value of supporting others. My tip? Practice self-awareness and self-compassion. Reflect on what truly matters to you and remember that it's okay to prioritize your own goals sometimes. 💖 Balance is key, and recognizing when you're veering too far into people-pleasing or overachieving can help you course-correct. Looking forward to hearing more experiences! 👐 #EnneagramCommunity #BalanceIsKey
