    In search of a demon killer



    Does anyone know where to find one?

    Also, how do I know they aren't a fake, and that they are good?

    I guess there is only one way to know if someone is a skilled demon killer.

    You have to be able to actually witness them kill one.

    Because after all, stories of demon killing just aren't good enough.

    So where to find someone, that is willing to fight a demon?

    Are there people specialized in demon fighting?

    Oh yes counselors, but even then, how do I know they have fought one, and aren't just following some manual? How do I know they truly have felt the fire and fear from a demon?

    Why not just go find someone thats already fighting one?

    Why not go into the INFP forum?

    I end up feeling like, I wish I could go help other people fight their demons more.

    Even worse, I end up feeling like I could be something other than a demon fighter.

    Perhaps I am many other things, a lover, a father one day, a businessman in other ways.

    But what stands out amongst those four things. Demon fighter.

    That is something I have to live with.

    Its not that I'm lonely per se, I have others in my life. Its not that I'm not successful, I am successful enough.

    It is that this damn pain of fighting demons, almost constantly, either new ones, or old ones that I got to close to while feeding them in the dungeon I hold them in.

    Well the pain is hard. It makes me, I just wish I could help slay other people's demons more.

    Perhaps its because I would like to be loved and appreciated more.

    But logically, why are they not seeking me out?

    I am a demon killer.

    I know how to kill a demon.

    Are they so in denial, that they will not seek out a true demon killer, and settle for someone with a "good story" about it, rather than witnessing it with their own eyes!!!

    Are they so selfish, as to expect me to be perfectly normal at the same time as fighting demons, so that I can help them with theirs?

    No I tell you.

    They must come, they must knock, and they must plead.

    Because INFP's are the demon killers, and we don't take it lightly, in fact, we have no choice.

    I am not stuck up, I am just fucking busy.

    Even though I often sit at my house, materialistically.

    I am doing anything but sitting.

    I am introverted in the depths of Hell, fighting, slaying, guarding the gates to Heaven.

    Not literally of course. This has all just been an INFP metaphor about how I relate to the problem, an exercise of confidence, dignity, and appreciation.

    I truly am not always fighting a demon, and even if people are ignorant out there, I'm going to help as many people as I can find.

    If they dont want my help, fine, I'm not going to carry around a war axe.

    I will let life take care of the people that don't want me, and I will spend time with the people I love, as often as I can.

    And if you are one of those that I love.

    Cheer me on, and continue doing what you do that you were gifted and put on this earth to do with.

    I will not compete with you, my hands are bloody, I would let myself be hurt from behind the second I turned unnecessarily to look upon you.

    But if I look upon you with love, love is a weapon, that kills evil.

    Give me your love, and I will have an even greater weapon.

    It is one or the other. I can not choose to let go, I must fight, but if one gives me their love, or I give love in the rare moments I am not in battle, perhaps I can enjoy free of burden, the laughter and the green grass for a while... :)

    Keep heart, for I am thinking of you and those like you when I battle, and I am always near when you need me, but you have a strong heart, and I know you will partake in this battle of good and evil, or be patient for me when you can not.

    This was a metaphor for INFP hood that I think many here will relate to, so please don't spam it or anything. I realize it looks like a blog/ love note, it is in some manners, but is also a lash of my whip to the demons in others' - that I have been given the inspiration to share.

    INFP's play nice a lot, but I don't feel thats who we are.

    I feel we are the MOST nice people, when we are hurt, as most people are, but on that note, we get hurt a lot from our battles, from our life's assignment. We actually have really thick skins. We just dont seem like it around people, because we are saving it up! We just don't have it to waste.

    But deeper than that is the fact that we dont have a lot of time for eachother, and that even the littlest kick of pride is enough to SLAP us out of equilibrium for an entire day.

    I appreciate all of you, and I tell you the ONLY reason I haven't befriended you is because we aren't fighting the same demon.

    But trust me, the second we fight the same demon, I'd rather die than..... well you know the feeling, don't you?

    Yes I/ we can be self absorbed, yes we place conditions on others.

    But no its not because we haven't accepted who we are, and no its not because we haven't grown up yet.

    Its because we've been grown up for thousands of years.

    I've fought my fair share of personal demons. I think it's important to seek support from others, this support may come from friends, family, doctors, councillors, psychologists etc. But none of these people can fight the demon for you, it's your battle and it's up to you to find the inner strength to overcome it.

    I found that persistence and tenacity are among the key qualities that will help you achieve success, you have to keep on going, no matter how much you want to give up. If you can do this, then eventually you will leave the demons in your wake. It's a great feeling to look back on things and see that you have overcome them through sheer endurance and determination.

    I wasn't asking for advice. I've been killing demons my entire life. I realize you have been too. We don't have to hand hold eachother unless we've been hit and we've been hurt. Right now I am in the battle just fine, and have time to rejuvenate often.

    Some demons are too big to win against, and all we can hope to do is keep them in their greedy lair until they come out to eat.

    Its a great feeling to be alive, and to have a purpose.

    For INFP's, I feel like we have no CHOICE but to be tenacious and persistent.

    But yes we must believe in ourselves and our point of living, otherwise we will never find that tenacity.

    Thank you for your shared experience.

    no worries

    Yea. That happens to me too. I don't know. Some things I want in life, completely contradict the others. And it seems like every time I grow in confidence, I both get better AND worse because I have more confidence to accomplish my goals, some of which are bad.

    There is no way for me to have good days all the time.

    I expect that I should be okay with being trapped, but recognize that at some point, there will be NO WAY to accomplish BOTH sets of goals.

    And that day I will have to choose.

    All this battling then, is preparation for that day.

    Good luck fellow warrior.

    The demons are ALL in you, but you recognize demons that others can not, and have given up against.

    The evil must bleed, and the good must bleed to fight evil.

    But evil is fear and doubt, where as good is faith and hope.

    you know the answer

    It makes me feel good that we are in this together...

    I feel connected to you. Stay strong before the fear sets in.

    I should change my username. but i like it :3

    thats what I've been feeling all along. I have this strong need to lift others and act as if nothing hurts me. You say that we aren't fighting the same demons. Its true. Some of us have to fight them alone :( I do wonder what you mean by grown up though?

    I always thought, wow, based on what I've read, aren't I supposed to be gifted in a way? Like I'm supposed to be able to do things exceptionally. And I wonder how I'm not confident in my academics despite it being my fort. But I do know that description alone does not define me.

    All I want is to be loved without being questioned. To not be pulled down by the negativity's gravity. To not be affected by the fire burning in my heart. I tried so hard to push away my emotions, and those feelings just ended up empty. I was more teary-eyed when I ignored it. Even if we can be chameleons of other types (or just the idea of being someone we aren't truly are.) I don't think we can truly be happy if its fake :( no one here would.

    Yet, how can I function as a productive individual the way I could imagine myself to be? I know its so possible. I thank you so much for your post :) It just encourages me. To be an INFP, one must live a roller coaster life of decisions. Everything is a big deal, and full of meaning. Especially spirituality? And anything really.

    Let's start on accessing our strengths. Then slay the demons empowering our weakness.
    Its like you put a battery on an unused toy and then it suddenly moves and I'm reminded of my childhood.

    The demons I have is sometimes myself. Thats why they haven't seeked me.

    Oh hai, I heard you were having a problem with demons? *Enters with a grin, carrying a cross and some holy water.*

    But really.. I'm disappointed. I expected to see someone's personal account of an unwanted demon possession in here. :/

    yea haha...

    my demon is me often too. I mean they are all my demons, but, the one i consider "me" is the one that forgets my faith, and says "maybe i cant" and lets the fear in. Fear is the demon in that case, an absence of faith I struggle with.

    Love can not find one that is hid from fear, and I hide under fear often when I am afraid to admit who I am. Yes I am a kind hearted person that wants what anyone wants, to be loved, to connect with others and life. But we all have are burdens to carry, and this is ours I say, or this is mine, perhaps yours.

    I always want to speak tentatively when speaking to other demon killers :) You are all warriors, with armor and sharpened swords. Sure, sometimes we don't believe in ourselves, but there is no warrior like the INFP warrior, we battle demons that transcend time, for a living.

    Yea, I might not fit in with people that think I'm weird, but if they accept me for what I am, their love can be my greatest weapon, and I can give them a sense of purpose and my love in return. WE can share our purposes together.

    Everyone is different, and this is who I am.

    There is no "normal."

    There is only what people try to fit in and what the media has created as normal.

    There has never been a normal

    There has always only been people secretly howling at the moon like wolves...

    Those willing to embrace it... and have special friendships but not with everyone

    And those that kill their yearning to call out and embrace their weirdness, and are friends with everyone.

    Some perhaps do both, but only half as much.

    There are many types of people..... and here I am, Me, You

    and the INFP's
