When I write this article, I write with a sense of apprehension, some trembling and a whole lot of misgivings. Who am I to decide what the life purpose of an entire category of psychological types is? :-p
Still, this is something that many INFJs might find useful. At the very least it will give…
Smile, for today was good.
The happiness that I just started to get back last week has all but disappeared. I spent like 72 straight hours around huge crowds and the introvert in me just got completely overwhelmed. I should not have done that to myself as I am paying for it now, and I unfortunately feel like I’m being rude and short with everyone as a result. I also got more drunk than I ever should have Saturday night, and it was one of the worst feelings when I woke up. I felt physically awful, nauseous, and out of touch. But more importantly, I felt mentally awful. I no longer had the euphoria I was experiencing the few days before. I was getting to a point where I thought work would work out okay and I’d be happy at least in the short term. But then I got so drunk and I’m back to where I was a bit, struggling with anxiety that I managed to suppress for a couple days. I shouldn’t drink alcohol as liberally as I do. Once the drunkenness passes, I feel awful and unhappy.
Today’s been really hard. I’ve been having information overload from every direction and I would prefer to just go to bed for about 3 or 4 days straight to just get away from literally everyone. I don’t want to talk to people. I don’t want to interact. I just want to be alone. I want to get away from the noise of others demands and opinions. And I want to evaluate my life. Where I am going. What I am doing. It’s especially painful because the last week I thought I had a better grasp on what I was doing with my life, but I’m just as uncertain now as I was then. I haven’t completely gone back to where I was, but I need to make sure I stick with my medication and also not get myself into situations where my mental state can be so dramatically altered like it was Saturday night.
I need to be separate from everything for a few days. I may come off as cold or distant, but please understand I need this for myself and it’s nothing against anyone. This struggle with anxiety is one that will take a long time. I thought after two weeks I would be fine, but this is clearly not the case. There is still half of 2013 left, and what I’ve been struggling with for the last six months, I don’t want to let it ruin the rest of the year for me.
After years spent fighting in some of the world’s worst wars, former U.S. Navy SEAL Kristin Beck says she knows what she wants.
This is beautiful. I hope this motivates some change in the armed forces’ attitudes about a gender other than male.
Reblog if you’ve ever struggled with anxiety/depression/bullying
Ok, so I’m doing this again..
I want to talk to every single one of you.
Reblog this, and I’ll send you a message. You do not have to be following me, I’m not doing this to gain followers, I’m doing it because I care.
Stay strong, and remember, I love you, I understand what you’re going through and I care. <3
i’m a strong believer that not everything you do needs an explanation. if you want a tattoo, get one. if you rather stay home that night, it’s okay to miss that party. don’t forget that you’re living for yourself. you don’t owe anyone an explanation for your choices or preferences.
I post what I want on here. It’s my blog. If you don’t respect that or have a problem with that, I don’t know what to say to you.
I’m so totally just tired of everyone tonight. I learned how people can be such hypocrites and how they hold you to an unfair standard they don’t even follow themselves.
