Wholehearted Living: Looking at Brené Brown's Work
Through the Lens of the Enneagram
Brené Brown defines worthiness as "the feeling that we are enough just as we are and that we are worthy of love and belonging." In her book, The Gifts of Imperfection, she writes that we can "hustle for our worthiness by constantly performing, perfecting, pleasing, and proving."
So what gets in the way of us living from a strong foundation of self-worth? One big culprit is shame - the feeling of being "too much" or "not enough." The Enneagram may give us some insight here - as to what specifically gets in the way for each Type, but also how we can learn to love ourselves as we truly deserve.
