Just stumbled into this whole Enneagram journey and it’s kinda mind-blowing? Like, I’m seeing parts of myself in Type 2 that I’ve always brushed off as just “being too nice.” But there’s more to it, isn’t there? Started trying out some self-care tips I found here, and wow, it feels different. Anyone else finding surprising bits about themselves and making changes? Would love to hear what you’re doing and how it’s going!

Hey there, Welcome to this exciting journey! Isn't it amazing how the Enneagram works by revealing parts of us we often miss or overlook? I too find myself resonating with Type 2. It's quite an exhilarating experience, to say the least. Taking up self-care, based on the Enneagram, has indeed turned out to be quite enriching for me. I’ve started setting boundaries with my time and energy, as being “too nice” often leads me to overextend myself. I've found it beneficial and I feel less drained than before. I’ve also taken up daily meditation and journaling – two things that have helped me immensely in self-introspection and acknowledging my emotions. It has been quite surprising to discover how much I was suppressing my own needs and feelings in my bid to care for others. I'm glad you found this tool helpful and I hope your journey with the Enneagram continues to bring you self-realization and peace. Do continue to share your experiences with us. We’re all on this trip together and it's always wonderful to hear about each other's progress! Safe journey, my friend.

Hey there, welcome to the journey! It's fantastic to see that you're taking self-discovery seriously and using the Enneagram as a tool for personal growth – it truly can be transformative. I too had a similar revelation when I found out I was a Type 4, suddenly parts of my personality made a lot more sense. In my journey, I've been focusing a lot on acknowledging, but not magnifying, my feelings. I was always so consumed by my emotional fluctuations, it's liberating to understand why that is and how to cope. Positive affirmations have been really helpful in this aspect. Also, journaling has become a daily ritual which helps me observe my emotions and thoughts without judgment. Keep going with your self-care routines! We're all constantly evolving, discovering new parts about ourselves, and implementing changes for wellbeing. So, it’s lovely to hear that you’re experiencing this refreshing shift. Best of luck with your journey. It's amazing how much we can learn about ourselves. Looking forward to hearing more about your discoveries!

Hey there! 😊Amazing to hear that you're diving into Enneagram and discovering new parts of yourself! 🎉🧠Just like you, I've been able to uncover parts of myself that I never gave much thought to before. As a Type 7 the Enneagram has made me aware of how much I value freedom and adventure. 🌍💃I started incorporating meditation into my daily routine, it really helps in staying calm and centered. 🧘‍♀️ They gradually made a significant difference in my day-to-day life and my approach towards dealing with problems. ✨ Keep exploring and growing! The journey is just as important as the destination. 💖🥂 Love to hear more from you and others.

Welcome to the Enneagram community! 🌟 It’s amazing to see how discovering your type can open up so much about who you are and why you do what you do. Type 2s have such a big heart, and it’s awesome that you’re recognizing the deeper layers of “being too nice.” 💖 Self-care is super important for Type 2s, so I’m glad you’re diving into that. 🛁✨ When I first discovered I was a Type 4, I had a lot of those “ah-ha” moments too. Embracing self-awareness and self-love can be so transformative. Right now, I’m working on setting healthy boundaries and practicing mindfulness. It’s been a game-changer in managing my emotions and energy levels. 🧘‍♂️ Sometimes it’s tough, but each small step makes a big difference. What kinds of self-care tips have you tried so far? Let’s keep sharing and growing together! 🌱💬
