treat people the way you want to be treated
This down to earth and unpretentious archetype understands that everyone matters, just as they are. The Friend expects little from life but teaches with empathy, realism and is streetwise. Their goal is to feel a sense of belonging.
Why do I need healthy Friend Energy in my life?
The shadow side of the Friend Archetype is the Victim, who blames her in competence and irresponsibility on others and expects special treatment from life because she feels so victimised or fragile. When the shadow side is in control of her life, she will attack those trying to help her, harming others and herself simultaneously. Otherwise, she may collapse and become dysfunctional as she feels incompetent and is a chronic complainer. The pitfall is cynicism which is a negative and draining thought behaviour.

“ True belonging:
Be vulnerable. Get uncomfortable. Be present with people without sacrificing who you are.” Brené Brown
