The people that are close to me I want to be close to me in 50 years. Still, when I encounter something that can’t last forever sometimes I need to break it…Sometimes I need to walk away from it before I shatter it forever, with the hope of returning.
But the only thing I’m going to do with these notes is figure out how to interact with you better. And maybe decide on whether or not we’d be good life partners who cuddle a lot.
Having a good job and a good relationship has made me feel more than a little antsy. Shouldn’t I be doing more things to make the future awesome? But, being focused on future happiness means I find it impossible to notice the present. Although, I don’t think I ever really want to be “content”, I always want to be striving for something more.
This is relevant to my life on so many different levels, oh my god. I’m thinking about going into social work, so I can have a decent job and make the world more awesome.
I have been thinking for more than a year about this—I think that striving for “wholeness” instead of “happiness or “contentedness” is a good goal.
This seems to boggle some Ts I know but, if you tell someone you care about them as you’re walking out the door, that is less powerful than telling them when you’re sitting next to them. Many NTs I know have larger personal bubbles, it worth considering shrinking that for NFs you care about.
I would love the chance to ask a butterfly “did you know what you were going to become?” When actualization of self is one’s goal it’s sometimes hard to figure out what that actually means.
It can be hard to explain the depth of myself unless I’m sparked by questions. It’s easy to assume most people don’t care.
Yes! If I trust you, you can ask me any question in the world and I will answer you honestly.
This is the inside of my brain. It’s like fucking Narnia back there.
Self-actualization drives most of my emotional truths. Though within all of them I am willing to turn any upside down or throw it away if I realize it’s false. I’ve noticed NJs in general have a strong need for a personal truth. For many INTJs I know it’s perfecting their understanding of ideas and intellectual truth.
Yes, yes, yes! I am definitely like this. It made my depression interesting to experience. I feel like it made me a more compassionate and understanding person. I would not be at all surprised if I experienced another depression one day—and this time I know my coping methods! (Granted, these change with times but now I know to keep track of them.)
