Slowly, we enter into the heart triad. Uh…what?
If you’re just tuning in, here’s the scoop: Each week at Wellness & Co. Amanda & Dylan will be hosting a panel for the Enneagram types, last week wrapped up the instinctual types (e.g., Type 8, 9, and 1) and THIS WEEK we’re leaning into LOVE with Type Two! (PS – if you cannot attend the panel live, you can still register and watch the webinar later on your own time)! You can register to watch the panel here – sign up for one or for all nine!
This style of learning and exploring the Enneagram is bound to give you new insights, new context to the nine types, and new pathways for growth from Type Structure to True Self!
So, in that spirit – in honor of our panel series we’ll be sharing some thoughts from YOU.
We’ve compiled reflections from all over to shed some light on our dear friends, Type Two. Particularly, what’s it like being married to a Type Two and what it’s like being a Type Two Mama!
Do ya’ll have a Type Two friend or loved one in your life? I sure hope so, they are – attentive, helpful, empathic, supportive, demonstrative, and a wee bit prideful. Ever wonder how they size up in the loveeeee department?
Thank you to everyone who shared what it is like being partnered with a Type Two! Your words and insights are helping us continue to honor and understand the strengths and challenges of partnerships with the Enneagram Type Two!
Last but not least, Two truly are incredible mothers. They are attentive and attuned to what their child needs. They actually have a gift in seeing needs, like a magical power. This can help them know their child intimately and foster a beautiful bond. And yet, their attunement can also make them wish others were just as attuned to them – creating some resentment and pride in their hearts. They long to be loved and as such, can also struggle with boundaries because they don’t want to hurt their children. These pros and cons help balance them out in the parenting department.
Curious to know what it’s like being a Type Two? Tune in tomorrow, July 28th at 6pm when we explore the life and experiences of three Type Twos!
