Wow, @auburn! That’s cool. I think I see what you mean. I like the second solution; (Yes, I’m equating hero’s journey with individuation; and I see now what you’re getting at.)
2. Saying everyone has an individuation journey, and classify the ‘hero journey’ as one subset of individuation related to Fe.
I agree with this. I hadn’t thought of it this way. For sure the idea of being called to a “pre-assigned” communal rule is positively stomach-churning to me. It sounds more like a prison than a calling. Breaking free of such “duties” is a fundamental part of my myth.
When I think of my journey/yearning, I’m trying to be myself (express my talents/gifts/nature): That’s the goal. It involves explicit rejection of any pre-assigned or socially prescribed roles or roles imposed on me. Rather it’s more like a flower blooming. That’s my idea of individuation (for me). Anything else I consider toxic.
