WCME 055: What if I don’t identify with my Passion? (aka False Jewel)

Start with a few deadly sins,
Then add two, just for shits and grins.
Now call it a “passion”
with words out of fashion
And that’s where our story begins.

Cherie asks: “What if you don’t feel your Passion is true for you? I really do not identify with avarice. Does anyone else of any type have this issue? I feel healthy boundaries are important, but don’t feel I’m withholding much of anything.”

Our top 3 suggestions:

  • 1. Check yourself. Perhaps you’re not consciously aware of your False Jewel?
  • 2. Check your type. Are you sure you’ve identified yourself correctly?
  • 3. Learn about your subtype. Some of the subtypes can go for their False Jewels in different ways.
