We continue our Enneagram ConvoCast series with another beloved member of our community, Wes! Wes shares with Tom his motivations, fears, stress, and security as a Type Two (the Giver or Helper). As a member of our YOB community, how does his Two-ness manifest in the realms of sexuality, masculinity, and relating with other men?
Since so much of the Two’s identity is tied to other people, we dive into this realm of “relating with other men” more than any other episode of this series. In particular, how does a Two respond to that precious loss in male friendship? How does a Two feel a sense of belonging with a community? How important is coming out for a Two? Wes also shares about the Two’s relating with God: does a Two feel beautiful in God’s eyes or merely tolerable to His purposes? How does the Two experience pride and manipulation in times of stress, and how does the Two experience self-care that isn’t selfish during times of growth?
Listen to our full Enneagram conversation, and be sure to follow us these next few weeks as we dial around the Enneagram and talk to each type in our community!
