Thank Tree91Thanks

This is a discussion on Any other numb INFPs who have lost the "rose-colored glasses"? within the INFP Forum - The Idealists forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; I've lost half of it. I'm still a bit optimistic... but I can be pessimistic at times....

    I've lost half of it. I'm still a bit optimistic... but I can be pessimistic at times.

    Yeah, for sure. Not fully, but in part. I think it comes from being worn down from the world.

    Having a little six month old, I am faced with innocence every day. Makes me reflect on myself and how long I was able to hold onto my own before succumbing to the realities of adult life. I was fortunate that it was a long time before I got smacked down.

    Being an adult is hard, man. I can't tell if it is the "normal" responsibilities that are bogging me down (all of them seeming to be harder for me than most people)... or the darkness of humans... my own internal darkness... (I'm not sure where I was going with this thought)

    Sometimes I think it is my own fault because of bad choices I made, and I wonder if I can ever get it back. And, if I do, I wonder what it will look like now.

    I think at this point, I am just trying to fill myself and my thoughts with as much goodness as possible. There is certainly enough crap out there to seep into my life by proximity without me welcoming it or ruminating on it also.

    Mine are yellow, not rose :)

    I think it is a little different. I think I have been less innocent though my life than peers, but that I have held onto a naivety. The naivety is not innocence though, it is a choice of perspective. And the yellow filter is not just naive... it is lively, love, value, a marker of relevance, beauty... etc.

    I dip down in the gray fogs now and then, and into the clean empty way of seeing things, it is not really a matter of loosing the other way to see, but periodical or even moments only sometimes, of seeing it differently.
    neutralchaotic thanked this post.
