Hey guys, new profile so not exactly new to these forums. Had a profile a few years ago, but never really went anywhere with it, so just thought I'd start over. Buy yeah hi.
Sort of venting here, but also advice welcome. I am an INFJ 4w5. I've gone through some significant life changes in the past year. My INFP friend likes to remind me that I've made really remarkable progress considering what my background is and what my life has been like. She's not wrong, but I guess the future oriented idealist in me just can't be satisfied, amiright guys? I know I'm currently in a rut and I think that rut is really starting to get to me. I know I'll calm down, but at the exact moment I'm writing this I'm just buggin' out with frustration. I think I could probably use healthy jolt to me SE. I know I'm too lodged in my head right now, but at the same time, I just can't get myself started. Do you guys have any sound advice or anything for when you feel this way? I'm especially frustrated because when I look at stuff about SE in regards to INFJ's it's like this, that, the other thing or basically anything that gets your body moving. And I'm like hold on a sec, my job is actually really physical. I'm a visual merchandiser for a furniture company, I set up all kinds of crazy displays, that require me to lift heavy objects, climb on ladders, use power tools and work with my hands. I also do a ton of walking. Wouldn't this satisfy my SE? Or is it because I do this for work and there's a lot of creativity and even mental energy also going into the physicality of my job, that it doesn't exactly count? Like do I gotta just SE for the sake of SE, y'know? Like yeah I walk around a lot for work, but like I should probably just go for a walk with no other point than to walk? Ugh like going for a walk sounds so simple and yet I'm like, is that really it, do I really have to go for a walk? I don't want to walk! Ugh!
Does anyone have anything to add?
