    Default What's so hard about being your type?

    Every type has its woes. Enneagram seems to focus on the negative rather than the positive (and I rather appreciate it, actually). So, what's so hard about being type X? Be as melodramatic as your heart feels it necessary.

    I wrote on my outside blog (it's in my signature) about love. Here, I am connecting it to being a 2.

    This is what's so hard about being a 2, and quite likely aux Fe. I entitled it, A Full Heart Aches.

    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life

    Literally everything makes me angry 100% of the time but I don't know how to handle it so I subconsciously trick myself into pretending that it isn't real, and end up never addressing any of my problems. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Even the slightest hint of negativity in the atmosphere affects me so heavily that it makes me unable to function or think about anything else.

    I'm paranoid and anxious even when there's nothing to be afraid of.

    I can also relate, @21lux.

    Come on, 4's. I know you have plenty to say.

    I was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning I break my legs, and every afternoon I break my arms. At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep.

    A dominant function that makes me a visible social outcast, and an auxiliary function that makes me feel like an outcast. A constant internal struggle between wanting to feel normal and to fit in, all while constantly striving to be the best representation of the self and having the urge to drop it all and to travel the world at a second's notice.

    the fact that life can actually sometimes feel like this^^^ but we're too damn escapist to seriously acknowledge it

    Recently I've experienced more and more how much I need support and approval from the outside. It feels like nothing is enough if it can't be attested and approved by others. Even if I'd create the most wonderful thing in the world, if other people think it isn't then they must be right. It's also why I'm so indecisive. Especially when there's contradicting information coming from the outside. Nothing's ever enough on its own and everything is uncertain and eh. I don't know.

    Then there's also my 9 fix that supports this uncertainty. I don't really know what I want from life and I wander through it aimlessly.

    As a 4:

    The self-esteem issues due to the perfectionistic streak of trying to live up to your own fantasy and expectations and the shame that comes from failing to do so...it's crippling - to the point of lashing out to others or, for me, taking it out on your own body in some way, until you figure that out.

    So much. I question everything that I do, repeatedly. I can pretty much(see even here) never be completely certain about anything.

    I am really bad at handling conflict, yet (if this is right which again-the doubt still exists)- I am double reactive, which makes me need to want to have a voice- shakes that need out of me. Everything can feel like a reiteration, one that is exhausting at times to try to explain verbally- and this only increases the risk- the 6ish uncertainty- the 4ish shame- the 9s meekness and reluctance to identify directly- of attempting to explain, for it can take so much effort and at the end of the day--- I am going to reject it because of everything I just mentioned. And this goes beyond type- I mean attempting to justify a type- this goes for anything. Makes it very very hard to do anything- to exist.

    This is fairly unclear, might actually go back and edit it later... If only to take out this last note probably...
