    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I was abused when I was younger....the worst part is that at the time I kinda liked it. That bothers me so much. It wasn't forced on me, so it was partially my fault. Now I'm all jumpy when someone touches me and nervous around people. Any advice on how to deal with this? Thx:proud: |-/

    Hi all, I'm an INFJ female who has had a series of bad experiences with INFPs. I started to notice the pattern a year and a half ago, and it's unfortunately made me both wary of INFPs and morbidly determined to break the cycle. The latter because I feel a strong immediate chemistry with and...

  17. Please don't make your children pick sides or treat them like your counselor!

    Children are not equipped to be their parents counselors or psychiatrist, they lack the maturity needed to sort out and handle adult problems. Please let them be children, don't burden them with adult issues. They will have their own to deal with soon enough. Please don't make your children...

    Advice Center
    I have posted on this subject before, but I am running into new issues. I set up boundaries with my parents (no hitting, no cussing me out, basic human decency), and they have been unwilling to agree to treat me in this manner. So, I let them know what I needed, and that I would not be in...
