> Looking over the topics on the four board, all I see is depression, angst, anxiety and self-doubt - which I have too. But are you basically condemned to be unhappy of you're a four? Even the enneagram book describes fours as "melancholy". But I need to believe there's a chance for happiness - even for angsty fours. So, are there any happy fours our there; anyone who is contented, fulfilled, at peace? Please let me know, bring a ray of light to the gloomy four board.

= I might better phrase that as I am "deeply optimistic".....
I'm very aware of the pain factor(and not that I have been pain free in life....I have had my fair share) but I try not to let it rule my life... If I see something wrong,or sad I try the optimistic route by doing something to make the world a better place, no matter how small the contribution. I'm a big believer that every act of love will set you free.
