I love your heart. It is so easy to see how deeply you love. I don’t want to imagine my life or this world without you in it. You make this world a better place. I am fascinated by how easily and quickly you will give yourself up for another, and even more, how a manipulative motive is not even a blip on your radar. How can someone lovingly embrace the whole world? How can someone be hurt over and over and still have a kind word or even desire to love and protect their offender. In its purest form, the Enneagram Two offers love the way the Trinity does: freely, easily, with no strings attached.
It is when I feel unsafe and without an anchor I run to the you, my Two friends. You are like home when the turbulent storm outside scares me. I can lean into your great strength and receive without anything being asked of me in return; what a gift! The little child in me already trusts you and your good heart way before the adult in me can accept this nurturing kindness. Thank you. Thank you.
My hope for you is that you will learn to love yourself the way that you love everyone else. It is the little child in you that may feel neglected and missed. This tender heart inside of you sees you giving pieces of yourself to everyone else and, at the end of the day, feels the desperate loneliness of you not having anything left. This ache pulls and tugs at you. It even sometimes seeps into the good motives of loving care and what leaks out is hidden judgement, resentment and even pride. The surprise will be for you that when you honor yourself with this deep love and set healthy boundaries, you will have an even greater capacity to love the world around you. Learn to ask for what you need and accept help from others and you will expand your ability for connection. Listen to your body and heart and be able to say no to others so that your “yes” will be so much more full and free.
Your desires, needs, hopes and dreams MATTER! Your voice is NEEDED! You are so incredibly WORTHY of love and belonging. Don’t fear what you offer so much of; readily receive it.
