Lonely Pineal Defender
By nature, you are an action-taker. You value hard work and pushing yourself to reach your goals. If you see something going wrong, you don’t hesitate to speak your mind and do something about it. In fact, it may be hard to bite your tongue and not confront the situation immediately. You have a knack for seeing what’s working and what isn’t for an individual, organization, or company. This is a skill you can use to great effect; however, how you do so is crucial. To get your message across, be considerate of others when communicating. To enact the changes you wish to see you must learn to give things time, and legitimize and support those who can enact change.
Quick with a joke and fluent in sarcasm, you are likely seen as the life of the party. On the inside, however, you often struggle with insecurity and prefer to socialize with a small and select group of people.
It’s very important to you that you do your best. When others don’t live up to their potential–or worse, act irresponsibly–it can be very irritating. Sometimes, people don’t see problems as clearly as you do, so you’re always course-correcting within an organization or relationship. Is it possible that you are just trying to protect yourself by planning for the worst-case scenario? Is your fear, judgement, or shame masquerading as responsibility?
Rather than trying to fix these problems you see on your own, try to use your knowledge to empower those around you. When you communicate this information, be sure to use social cues to adjust the way you deliver your observations. If you push things too far, you may turn people away entirely.
You approach life trying to embrace a fierce acceptance of who you are. While your attitude is often “I am who I am, take it or leave it,” this provides cover for an insecurity that you rarely acknowledge. Deep down, you doubt your own value; by trying to work hard in your career and earn degrees, promotions, and achievements, you hope to definitively prove to yourself that you’re worthy. However, this is an incredibly exhausting way to live. Your worth doesn’t come from the things you achieve or the possessions you accumulate. It has far more to do with who you are.
You want people to be accepted for their authentic selves, and you understand how important it is for everyone in a community to be treated with respect. Most frustrating of all for you is when someone excludes themselves from community. In both instances, you deliver messages (sometimes gifts, sometimes advice) to try and assist; however, this is not always welcome or well-received.
Remember, just because you don’t get the response you wanted doesn’t mean your work isn’t important. You often refuse to pick your battles and try your best to solve every problem you can but pointing out every change you feel needs to be made can be more disruptive than it is helpful. You often try to do others’ work for them, but this is not your job. Ask yourself, “Is this part of my work? Am I truly the one called to do this?” If you do not use a discerning eye to figure out what’s most important at any given time, you will become exhausted and completely unable to do the important work you were designed for.
