This is a discussion on A Good Face within the ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers forums, part of the SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers category; I've been having an issue that I'm not used to. I've been trying to remain strong in front of others ...

    A Good Face

    I've been having an issue that I'm not used to. I've been trying to remain strong in front of others to help them with their issues but I've recently been burning myself out. Also for whatever reason I'm more than happy to give out hugs (in fact I look to give them out.) But when I need one I never ask for one. Do any of you other ESFJs have this issue?

    I'm forcing myself to post this since I realized that part of me didn't want to because there are people on the forums to help as well who I need to stay strong for. I feel ridiculous.

    I feel the same way sometimes. I feel like I give a lot, but don't get the same kind of support in return and it can be frustrating. I have a hard time asking others for things or admitting that I need them. That's the eternal problem of the ESFJ. Sometimes we find ourselves doing things for others in the hopes that other people will do them for us in return, but that's not always the case.

    Learn to ask for a hug from people you care for. They will often return the favor.

    You know I think that a lot of it is that I know people I hang out with aren't really into hugging that much. It's something we just haven't really done. The guy I'm living with (ESFP I think he said.) I think he'd be happy to give me hugs. As would his GF ENFP I think could be J.

    I don't know. I will try to bring it up more often. We'll see how that goes. Thank you both.

    There's an ESFJ I would have loved to give a hug to if given the opportunity that wasn't questionable given the circumstances. I knew that he needed support, but I couldn't give him the type that would have made him feel safe and/or cared for. I always felt that we shared somewhat a mental connection or vibes and I would send them out to him and ask him if he was stressed... and he'd say he wasn't, but I knew he was. He's just so strong for everyone I wish that he would come in from the storm more often....
