The thing I like best about the Enneagram is it’s unparalleled depth of motion and fluidity into the human psyche. I think that people hear ‘personality test’ and they instantly think, “You’re trying to box me in. I can’t be labelled.” And trust me, as the resident enigma, I feel you, and am here to tell you, the Enneagram does anything but. It goes as deep, and gets as complicated as you’re willing to take it. When all is said and done every person has a main type, which stays the same throughout your life and determines both of your wings (yes, you have two—so you can fly!), your stress type and your integration type, as well as your stacked instinctual variants, for a grand total of five types per person actively at work in the hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, etc. In addition to this there are nine levels of health to disintegration within each type, which are described in depth, and when you move within these levels in your main type, you move to the same level in all of your periphery types. This accounts for an insane amount of human diversity. With that said, I have never met a person who didn’t fit perfectly into their type, even if it took a little digging and truth seeking to figure out where exactly they were situated within their type at the moment.

The U.S. is finding a way to reintegrate Hmong refugees back to Laos. There is no explanations as to why, but just on how they are going to make it happen: by using the U.S. tax money. There are so many conflicted emotions going on between several different groups of people, but of course, especially the Hmong community. There's many unfair actions and judgements that all we can do is fight back and stand up for ourselves.
This series is an ongoing series as I still struggle with self-worth, self-doubt, and confidence. Within this series, they are more of letters to myself with the goal of hoping to extend it to my audience. For those who are going through the same emotions as me: self-doubt, self-love, and trying to find our value and purpose in life, I hope to extend it to you; therefore, welcome to my SELF-LOVE series.
Are you yearning to find the truth to set you free from all the lies and deceits in this world? It's hard to figure out was is real and what is not, but as followers of Christ, we believe that what He says is the truth of all truths. You can find the truth by reading the bible, praying and communicating with God, and asking yourself questions that can be answered.
