letting go

  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey hey, When I was younger I got into a car accident and I was at fault and refused to drive for a year and a half after. I was angry with myself and felt absolutely terrible and ashamed that I put someone else's life at stake. It wasn't even a serious wreck but I catastrophized it. About 5...
  2. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hi there, First time I post something here, even though I have read a lot of threads here. I have something bothering me, and I would hope to receive some tips of how to develop and get through it. I really have a tendency to get "fixated" over relationships several times. Like, I can't let go...
  3. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I feel like a really unhealthy INTJ. I spend to much time doing unproductive things and I want to say goodbye to them for good. I'm done wasting my time. It's time to grow up and improve my life. I'm 29 years olf and been saying things like that since I was like 22 or younger. But enough is...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    :hampster: I recently split up with my partner of almost 5 years. It was an opposite's attract scenario (probable ISTP). Five years is a long time. Silly me, I thought we could work through everything and that it would never end. It has been about two months since we broke up. I don't really...
  5. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    i am an enfp and one of my oldest friend is this girl who is an entp. our friendship can only be described as toxic - if we were to spend too much time with each other, we both start to be at loggerheads and can even start to hate each other. even enough many people tell me to let go of such a...
  6. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Saw this thread in the INFJ forum. We ENFJs need a place to mourn too. This is the thread for you to post tributes or obituaries to lost family members, loved ones, childhood items, pets, what have you. May this be a safe space to grieve. Offering for Grief Look! I have made this bowl for...

    Maybe there's a reason we all hold on. Maybe the last guy I was in a relationship with still wants to get back together with me even if being together was painful for both of us, because he misses talking to me. Maybe the reason that I'm not breaking away from my dad even if he's been nothing...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Any body else find it to be a cruel irony that the personality type that makes up the smallest amount of the population (INFJs), and thus tends to have the least amount of true friends, simultaneously has the hardest time untangling themselves from relationships that have gone awry? You know...
  9. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello cafeverse -- I'm curious to see if any other INFJs on here have found mindfulness & unattachment to be a changing force in their lives. I'm also curious to see who else feels like they're straddling this world and the spirit world on a daily basis [and if this has led you to think about...
  10. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Hello. I'm an 8w7, and frankly, I feel it's been a flash-point for conflict among me and my friends, primarily with one of my friends who is an ENFP 4w3. Whenever I have an outburst of anger, or respond in a way that others see as vindictive or overly aggressive, I'm often mocked as a result...
  11. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So this is my first serious post on this forum and I shouldn't be that surprised that it's about an old friend that I can't seem to let go of that is taking hold at the number one spot for my first post on here. Anyway, I've read time and time again that it is really difficult sometimes for...
  12. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    :proud: so I figured it out. You know that there is a difference between understanding what something means and actually *knowing* what it means right? :ninja: so I finally got to *know* what integrating to type 9 is: Both me and my mother are type 6w7, but i have noticed a difference between...
  13. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi everyone! I am an INTP and from what I gather INTP is the least occurring MBTI type in females the world over. I would like to take this opportunity to interact with fellow INTPs, women and men both, as I haven't come across another INTP in my social circle, which as you can guess, is quite...
  14. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I have so much trouble with moving on from the past. I have lots of painful memories that I block out, and I feel as if I really need to get over them if I am going to be able to move forward in life. I have lots of regrets that I can't seem to face, but which I constantly dream about...my...
  15. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi, guys. I could probably research this on my own, but I'm too lazy. A lot of ISFJs I know (3 out of the 4 in my immediate circle of peers) have trouble letting go of relationships—really unhealthy ones at that. Now, I don't like generalizations, and I don't think letting go of a...

  17. General Psychology
    Hi guys, I'm quite new here and let me explain a little about what I'm experiencing now. I'm currently in the 10th grade in school. In my education system, the 10th grade is split into two streams, the arts and the science. When you're in the science stream you'll study Bio, Chem, Physics, and...

    Boy Oh Boy...what can I say to summarize what's going on in the old noggin' tonight? 1 - I can only pray, let go and let God as we wait for the news of this week's upcoming layoff at my husband's work. His supervisor said he is sure he is safe because he's told the bosses to keep him so...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Well... back in January I had a hard breakup with a girl I had been with a long time. It happened because she was angry and afraid about a bunch of things she never told me about until it blew up in my face. It's been difficult totally getting over it, but I've been fine and recovering. Despite...
  20. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I find that I'm overprotective of my friends, and I don't like new people around them. I get very agitated and feel threatened (even when there's strong evidence that I'm important to them.) So rather than leaving out of fear of rejection or getting to annoying with possessiveness, I'm trying...
