From Your Enneagram Coach:
Let’s dive into Core Weakness or the issue that each Type struggles within everyday situations and interactions with others. Each Type has something that they are always wrestling with, an Achilles’ heel that remains with them for all their days on Earth. This is like the “thorn in my flesh” Paul described in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. But as Paul explained, Christ’s grace is sufficient for us, and his power is made perfect in weakness. Because of his sacrifice, we can surrender ourselves to Him and allow Him to transform our hearts to be more like his. The more we depend on Christ and rest in our true identity in Him, the weaker the grip our Core Weakness has on us.
