    INFp and Wanderlust

    Is anybody else get stricken with wanderlust? For me it is constant. I always want to be on the move and it is the only time I feel free. I can't stand routines or anchoring myself down with possessions. The problem is that I know it isn't feasible to do in today's society unless you have plenty of money. I personally wouldn't mind living out of my car or walking wherever I need to go.
    The thing that keeps me rooted is that I don't have enough money to start a life like that. Plus, none of my friends or family would understand why I feel the need to wander. I am stuck in a job I hate that gets me so depressed that I spend most of my extra money on things that give me just a little bit of happiness in order to get through the day.

    All the books, songs, artists and movies I love tend to be about drifters and wanderers or written by drifters and wanderers.

    Does anybody else have this problem or have any suggestions to help me get through it?

    Yep I goti it too. I have a paid off house and and a house filled with positions and I hate it. Most people would be very happy to have the junk I have. But it is more like a ball and chain to me. It is sucking the life out of me at time. I think the house and the junk inside a house is meaningless to INFP's. For me for sure. I would love to just stike out and live out of my car. Buy a tent and just live from place to place camping outside.

    hey vastcat, i can relate. I hate routines and often find myself in wanderlust, wondering if I'll ever be able to survive this life

    oooohhhh yes. i've been practically obsessed with the idea for a while now... just traveling and exploring and whatnot. the thing is, i'm also obsessed with doing something great and fulfilling, but that would probably tie me down to one place. i'd say i'm honestly equally attracted to both traveling and doing nothing but exploring, and doing something fantastic and life-changing and living a relatively normal, but fulfilling, life. and oh yeah, i'm also incredibly lazy and am not going in the direction of achieving either of those.

    I feel the same way about possessions, they're nice but they're also a trap.
    You could always get paid to teach english overseas.

    The problem to that is that you're still trapped by your job. You might be in a different location but the need to wander will still be there.

    No, it's only a one year contract and you'll get to travel around the new place you live, which I guarantee will be more exciting than anywhere in the US or Canada. Then after you finish you take the money you've saved and take 3-6 months traveling Vietnam, Thailand, India...whatever.

    I am in the same boat. Some part of me wants to settle down and own a house and maybe have children. I've been waiting my whole life for a reason to just go hit the road. I've even sabotaged myself and things I've built to try and force myself to pull up roots and leave.

    It sucks to have the wanderlust. You won't let yourself build anything since it threatens your freedom, but you can't just leave because you need something you can fall back on.
