Enneagram as Mirror to the Soul: Type Eight

A place for those with the type eight enneastyle to discuss personal growth.

Rumi Poem | Type 8

There is a sacredness in tears

They are not the mark of weakness

But of power

~ Rumi

Why is this an important poem for type Eights to use for reflection? Eights believe that showing vulnerability of any kind is weakness; they also believe that strong is good and weakness is bad. But when they allow the tears of vulnerability to emerge and integrate this aspect of themselves, they learn that true strength includes being vulnerable.
