Different ways of overcoming obstacles

Recently, I've come accross an interesting type of psycho analysis called "Enneagram Personality." This types of psycho analysis helps to classify people into 9 different personalities under 3 major groups. Once you determine your specific type of personality, it helps you better understand and analyze how you deal with problems.

Whether it is Stargardt's or any other condition, there's always a process of acceptance and struggles that one has to go through. This type of psycho analysis may help you better understand how you can deal with your problems, and also what kind of obstacles you may have.

This is especially important when it comes to helping you find a better way of interacting with your children. If you are able to understand your own personality and their personality, then you can find a way of deducing their troubles and train of thoughts. It also can assist you to find a better solution for you to support them in their journey of overcoming the mental struggles that is associated with growing up or accepting this disease.

I once said that for me, overcomingStargardt's is like learning to face death, it's not just a physical limitation on the eyes, the physical limitations are only the tip of the iceberg. Stargardt's changes people, sometime for the better, but sometimes it drive people into dark corners of their mind.

I've heard of cases where Stargardt's patients push themselves in trying to prove that they are better, their spend their lives trying to show the world their worth, often, you see much "success" in terms of social accomplishments, but I wonder, when all is done and said, are they really happy with who they are?

There's always different ways of approaching the same problem, different personalities is like changing the formula hence you need a different answer, there's no right or wrong, because it's a learning process.
