Life is about balance. Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you. Trust, but don’t be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.

Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

I’m so pissed that this blog is now inaccessible due to Tumblr claiming it has “sensitive content” like damn I made this blog to fight the stereotype that all INFPs are sensitive and look what we’ve come to

Question:

Hi! I have a question, how comes you don’t post as much anymore? I love coming on your blog and reading the quotes. They’re a life saver

Answer:

Aw, I’m so glad people still go on this blog despite my absence! To be honest, I’ve just lost interest in MBTI. My 15/16 year old self would be SHAKING if I knew then that I would eventually stop keeping up with it but alas… I think MBTI was an excellent way to help develop an understanding and perspective of myself and others, and to navigate my place in the world in general as a high schooler, but sometimes interests expire as time goes on! 

I hope everyone who still visits this blog is doing well! And always remember, you are whatever you aspire to be, regardless of what a four letter personality assessment tells you you tend to be! We all have the power to strengthen our weaknesses :,)

Question:

*publish I have terrible social anxiety and a very hard time making friends. Just the other day, my mom had to go tell me to ask the girl who told me my jacket was cute for her email and I was terrified to go and ask her. Of course after actually encountering her, the experience made me even more introverted because it went badly. Do any other INFPs have this problem I wonder?

Answer:

oh I bet many people can relate to this, not just INFPs. especially people with social anxiety, of course. in general, it’s really tough to introduce yourself to new people like that, so I commend you for doing it !

just a random reminder (not directed at you but in general), remember that social anxiety isn’t interchangeable with introversion! they’re different things. introversion is the tendency to need alone time to recharge energy; social anxiety is the fear of interacting with others in social situations.

Looking back at my submissions about 2 years ago made me see the positive changes in myself. During the days where my emotions ran amuck, all I needed was someone empathetic to go through it with me. Sure, others’ pieces of advice helped but ultimately, it was those people who encouraged me to express my emotions and spoke with wisdom that made me who I am today — someone who knows who he is and knows how to handle emotions. I hope you all find healing too; I hope you’ll find people to walk with too.

Self worth is so vital to your happiness. If you don’t feel good about you, it’s hard to feel good about anything else.

Question:

y do I feel like I’ve never met someone who fully gets me???????? infp struggle or ???

Answer:

I don’t think it’s possible to ever find anyone who completely understands you, but I think there may be a person or two who share strikingly similar morals/standards/ideas about the world as you. Every person is so different in so many ways, unfortunately it’s difficult to find someone who will align with you perfectly!

That being said, I thought I would never find anyone who remotely came close to being similar to me or viewing the world as I do, until I met someone this year (or I guess, last year now)! It is possible to find someone “good enough”; that’s really all you can hope for. Someone who comes close enough in the way that you don’t feel entirely isolated.

Question:

Okay, this is going to sound horribly egotistical, but we're literally all so damn cute! 😩 I love reading this entire page because it's just chalk full of adorable, yet tough and feisty little humans. All expressing their concerns for one another's well being, having deep discussions or rants, relating to each other on so many different levels, comforting and encouraging one another, offering advice, and figuring out life together. It's just so disgustingly heartwarming. 😝😊

Answer:

this is true, we are all very adorable and loving and we deserve the best

The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be.

I’m currently sitting in front of an opened window, listening to “Dawn” from Pride&Prejudice, and drinking in the etheral sight above me. The clear night sky is missing a few of its glowing sprinkles, and the softest clouds are gently caressing the moon, and the moonlight is giving me invisible kisses that I try to take a bathe in; and I’m just here wondering if this is all just another winter dream of mine.
