Me (Part 1)

How many parts will there be? Who knows, and frankly, I don't care lol. I may be a type 6 but you will begin to see how complicated I am, indeed, like I am finding for myself. :)
First off, I've been going to therapy, and before your hiss and cuss or just sit there all mind-boggled, hear me out:
In my opinion, the reason people are so miserable, is because they can't talk with other people about themselves. And I'm not talking about what you've done, I'm talking about who you ARE. Which may seem incredibly obvious to many of us on the personality forum. Heck, I thought that once I figured out I was an INFJ and a type 6, that things would just be clear as day. But, that is a label I have placed upon myself; and it may be how I perceive things and react to things, but ultimately, it has given me no additional peace to know these things. If anything, we have more questions.
Now, that is a good thing, and because I'm a type 6, I've always tried to find the end-point to any given thing. It has given me satisfaction to do so, but again, all I was really doing was, you guessed it (I hope) LABELING things. Yes indeed, just another way to quantify myself based on the outside world. And EVERYONE seems to do this. It's quite mind blowing when you think about it, and once you start to monitor those thoughts in your head that you once thought were sacred, you may feel like you're, in actual fact, a crazy person. At least, we could hope so, because as we all know, crazy people never think they're crazy, right? Exactly. ;)
ANYHOW, what does this have to do with me or you or anything else, well, nothing, and that's the point. Or should I say: the point is that there is no point. Not only that, but looking for a point or a label to help you feel your way through life seems, to be honest, quite pointless to me, in and of itself. Now, don't get me wrong, knowing your personality type and enmeagram type is crucial, I think, in order to find who we are, but it is not the end. And if you don't think it's the end either, congratulations, did you want recognition? Why do you need recognition? ;) Sorry, I am TRYING to be subtle here. :P
Anyhow, I'm just trying to spew out my thoughts on life to anyone who dares read. This isn't for marks, so please don't critique anything, all I wanna do is, hopefully, hear some opinions on ANYTHING, not even this blog, perse, but anything at all. Now one may think I'm being structured, and I am. We can't help what we are, and I am, in fact, one of the 58 different combinations of type 6, so of course I'm gonna be structured. But the idea isn't to change me to suit you, or to change you to suit me. The idea is to relate to one another in harmony, and that, I think, is something that has been lost along the way. Something that no one seems to care about anymore. All anyone seems to care about are the labels. How well you fit in them, how you behave in their name, and etc. Starting to piss me off, actually. But anyhow, I'll leave you with a bit about me in this, the first part. Hopefully you read, but if not, it's your loss. And this goes for everyone on the planet lol. It's not me, it's you. ;)
Anyhow, here's some info on my Enmeagram Tri-Type. :P Thanks to SilverMoon for helping me with it by compiling all she could find when I wasn't even looking. XD It truly is important, and I hope I can put it to good use. :P
269 Good Samaritan Archetype
269, 692, 926 - The Good Samaritan: You like people and want to find ways to engage with them. Your sense of pride comes from getting along with others and being of assistance. You are known for your easygoing and friendly disposition. Your life mission is to identify what is problematic and needed, then find peaceful solutions for those concerned. A true trouble-shooter, you are happiest when you can help others in conflict bridge their differences. Your blind spot is that you can be so focused on being a peacemaker, tending to the needs of otehrs and getting along with them that you can fail to voice your own truth and act in a timely manner. You are overly identified with being a 'nice' person. Your growing edge is to recognize that being nice does not always create peace and that being passive does not mean that you are nice. True charity comes from listening to your heart and acting in accordance with what is needed without strings attached even if it causes conflict.
269: The Good Samaritan This tritype is the gentle, supportive type. They are identified with getting along with others and not making waves. They are one of the most passive tritypes and avoid confrontation. They struggle with indecision. They are not identified with their aggression and are passive- aggressive.
