I'm wondering if anyone does this too. INFP's (I think ... if not ... ??) will sometimes have a bent for helping and healing others, and I think I have this too (don't laugh), but what I'll do is look for people who are alone or lonely, listen to their thoughts and feelings, try to feel them for myself, and then talk like I would giving myself advice. Most of the time I do this, it's because I'M lonely though, and I have so far come to this forum as an outlet for that (which I am kind of sorry about, actually <_<) The vast majority of the time I don't get the intended results, which is helping anyone, because it's a thousand times better to just be yourself and meet people on equal terms and lighten up, joke around, don't take stuff so seriously. Can anyone relate to this? I'm like "blah blah blah blah and that is the divine truth, amen" and I'm all proud of it and the other person is like, "so anyway ...". Does anyone else get really serious like that though and I guess fall into the thinking that what they are for is to spread some divine truth instead of actually relating to people just as yourself? (I definitely don't have any pancake mix, if that reference isn't too out there)
(Also, as an apology, I'm sorry for doing that ... I'm not sure I'm very skilled at catching myself ...)
If so, what do you do? I just get lonely is all, and I've found, ime, that there is nothing I can do about it, no amount of thinking differently or trying to feel it or wait it out that helps, with the one exception of just acting like it isn't there, and (crossing my fingers) I think that helps. Thinking of it as maybe just chemical, something not really a part of me, but just a sensation in my environment ... I think it helps. What are your thoughts on this?
