As a 2w3, I constantly find myself overextending to help others, often at the expense of my own needs. My drive to be appreciated and loved makes it hard to say no, leading to burnout. Balancing my desire to support others with self-care feels impossible. How can I set healthier boundaries without feeling guilty or fearing rejection? Any tips on maintaining my sense of worth without relying solely on external validation? Looking for practical advice from fellow 2w3s or anyone who understands this struggle. Thanks!

I'm curious about the dynamics of being a 2w3. How do you balance the need to help others (Type 2) with the desire for achievement and recognition (Wing 3)? Do you find that one aspect tends to dominate more in your life, or do they work together harmoniously? Also, how does this combination influence your relationships and career choices? Any personal experiences or insights would be greatly appreciated! 🌟

Lately, I've been struggling with balancing my need to help others (Type 2) and my desire for recognition (Wing 3). I often overcommit to projects and social events, hoping to feel valued, but end up feeling drained and unappreciated. How can I set healthier boundaries without feeling guilty or fearing that people will think less of me? Any tips on managing the constant drive for approval while staying true to myself would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Curious about the dynamics of a 2w3! How do you balance the nurturing, people-pleasing tendencies of Type 2 with the ambitious, image-conscious traits of Wing 3? 🤔 Do you find that your desire to help others sometimes conflicts with your personal goals and achievements? How do you manage these dual aspects in relationships and career? Any tips for staying authentic while navigating these sometimes opposing drives? Would love to hear experiences from fellow 2w3s or those who know one well! 🌟 #Enneagram #Type2w3

Curious about the dynamics of a 2w3! How do you balance the nurturing, people-pleasing tendencies of Type 2 with the ambitious, success-driven traits of Wing 3? Do you find that your desire to help others sometimes conflicts with your own personal goals? Or does the Wing 3 energy actually enhance your ability to support and connect with people? Would love to hear how other 2w3s navigate this blend of motivations and any tips for maintaining healthy boundaries while staying true to both aspects. 🌟

I'm a 2w3 struggling with balancing my need to help others and seeking validation. Even though I genuinely enjoy being supportive, I often feel drained and underappreciated. 👩‍🦳 Despite fixing everyone's problems, rarely do people notice my efforts or reciprocate the care I extend. These feelings lead to a mix of resentment and low self-esteem. How do fellow 2w3’s effectively set boundaries without feeling guilty? And when stress builds up, what healthy coping mechanisms do you use to recharge? Honestly could use some advice from anyone who’s been through this. 🌼
