Enneagram Type And Wing 2W1 Forum Post

Hey everyone! I've recently discovered that I'm a 2w1 on the Enneagram, and I'm curious about how other 2w1s experience this combination. 😊 From what I understand, the core Type 2 is all about being a helpful and nurturing person, while the Wing 1 adds a touch of perfectionism and a strong sense of right and wrong. For those of you who also identify as 2w1, how do you balance the desire to help others with the need to maintain personal standards and ideals? Do you find that the Wing 1 influences your decisions or behavior significantly? Would love to hear about your experiences, challenges, and any tips you might have for navigating life as a 2w1. Thanks in advance! 💬 #Enneagram #Enneagram2w1 #SelfImprovement #PersonalGrowth

Hey there! 🌟 Welcome to the 2w1 club! 😊 I totally resonate with what you're saying. As a fellow 2w1, I've found that the balance between helping others and upholding my personal standards can sometimes feel like walking a tightrope. The Type 2 part absolutely loves to nurture and support others, which can sometimes lead to overcommitting or putting others' needs before my own. Meanwhile, that Wing 1 voice inside is always there, nudging me to do things "the right way" and maintain high standards. 📝✨ One of the challenges I've faced is making sure my desire to be helpful doesn't lead to burnout. It's important to set boundaries and take care of yourself too. Self-care is not selfish; it's essential! 🌸💪 The Wing 1 influence definitely impacts my decisions, often pushing me to go above and beyond, sometimes even to the point of perfectionism. 😅 It can be a double-edged sword, but it also helps in being thorough and conscientious about the help I'm providing. A tip I'd share is to practice self-compassion. It's okay if everything isn't perfect all the time. Also, periodically check in with yourself to ensure your own needs are being met. This balance can help you continue being the amazing, caring person you are without feeling drained. 💚💫 Would love to hear more about your journey and how you're navigating these traits! 😊 #EnneagramFamily #2w1Life #BalanceAndGrowth
