My mom, and one of my closest friends are both obvious E6s. They are very dependent on their friends and family, very loyal, etc. and very, very anxious.
I have tried with no avail to calm their anxiety. I have explained as rationally and reassuringly as I can that there is no reason for them to worry as much as they do. They both are not at any risk of becoming homeless, friendless, losing their job (in the case of my mom), or failing out of college (in the case of my friend), but they seem to endlessly worry about just those things. Or anything else that could potentially be a problem. My friend has resorted to pills to help her anxiety, and it has somehow led to intense memory loss, to the point that she can't remember most of her childhood. I believe it would be better for her to try some kind of therapy. I'm no therapist, but she can't afford therapy, so I'm hoping that some of the 6s around here (or anyone knowledgeable about enneagram) could give me some advice?
As an E6, what are some things that, were they said to you (or done for you, etc), would calm you down immensely during times of stress? And do you have any idea why my attempts at reassurance have no effect? More details can be given if necessary.
