Lately, I've been struggling with balancing my desire to help others (Type 2) and my need for perfection (1 wing). I often overextend myself, trying to be the perfect helper, which leaves me feeling exhausted and unappreciated. I find it hard to say no and set boundaries without feeling guilty. How can I better manage these conflicting drives and maintain healthier relationships? Any tips on self-care while staying true to my core motivations would be greatly appreciated!

As a 2w1, I often struggle with balancing my desire to help others and maintaining my own boundaries. My need to feel useful and appreciated sometimes leads me to overcommit, leaving me drained and resentful. The 1 wing adds a layer of perfectionism, making it hard for me to delegate tasks or accept help. How can I better manage my time and energy without feeling guilty? Any tips on setting healthy boundaries while still being supportive would be greatly appreciated! 🌟

Curious about the dynamics of being a 2w1! How do you balance the nurturing, people-pleasing tendencies of Type 2 with the principled, perfectionist traits of the 1 wing?

As a 2w1, I struggle with balancing my need to help others and taking care of myself. 🌀Constantly focusing on other people's needs leaves me feeling burnt out, and yet guilt creeps in when I try to set boundaries for self-care. The idealist perfectionism of my 1 wing prevents me from saying 'no' easily. How do you maintain those healthy boundaries while still staying true to the nurturing instinct that comes so naturally? Any self-care tips or mindset shifts particularly suited for us 2w1s would be greatly appreciated! 💭
