the curse of the infp

my heart hurts from all this

talking, talking, talking 

is anyone actually


to what anyone else is saying


I feel like I'm giving up on the world.  I'm watching the way the people around me treat each other. I'm watching my Facebook feed fill with opinions, opinions, opinions that are treated like pure fact.   I'm watching the utter nonsense that gets spoken about who will get elected and why and why not and can't we all just get along.

It just keeps getting louder and louder and louder and people keep getting meaner and meaner and meaner and suddenly everything that everyone does is wrong, not good enough, to be shamed.

It’s hard to be the feeling one
It’s hard to be the empath, the perceiver
The sensitive one,
who cares too damn much

Please, I just need a still small space full of kindness and quiet, just for me. Right now, before my heart explodes.

It sure is a lot. Don't let the too-much-ness of it all weigh you down. Disconnect and be kind to yourself. Know that you aren't alone in the overwhelm of all the noise and overwhelm. Your infp companions hear you! xox
