I often feel a longing for the future and what is to come. This is especially if I am really looking to something. I also have a certain wish to understand the people around me more and for those who are close to me to understand me. I long for the well-being of people in my life as well. I also have a wish to improve in what I do. Sometimes if it is a deeper want, I can't put my finger on it in the moment and it takes time to think about. It takes time to figure out.
Lol daily as well. Although it is normally a longing for a world I think we could be living in rather than the world we are living in. Normally but I can long desperately for those people and relationships who/that have come and gone in my life as well
I have an intense longing to find my purpose and meaning in this life. Also, I can be pretty dramatic about missing people (in my mind), I feel physically ill and unstable being away from someone I deeply care about for long.
Oh yes. I'd practically define my personality and mental state by longing.
I always feel as though I'm longing for something, for some completeness or truth or deep meaning. Sometimes it feels more like a deep connection I long for, a special closeness, an openness. I don't really know though, and that's partly what the longing has to do with.
I'm always searching, and I'd define that feeling when I'm aware of it as a sort of longing.
I long mostly for understanding, and in that love as well. I know this is such a paramount trait for us because we are so often misunderstood.
I want to understand myself better which is what has led me here. I'm still very much a work in progress on this end. I also want to be understood, if just by one other person. It is so exhausting to have to explain myself to every new person who enters my life, when I myself don't even have a complete grasp on me, especially when no matter what I say or do, the other person still doesn't get it.
As I already said though, I long for love too. I really believe this goes hand in hand with the understanding. I long for more than just any love. I long for a true soul connection. I just want one person to enter my life who gets me and I don't have to explain everything to. I also want someone who will see all my qwerks, imperfections, weaknesses, flaws, and love me fully in spite of those things.
I have wondered if this is something that I might really one day have, or if this is just another function of my INFJ idealism.
Yes, all the time! Sometimes the feeling is so intense, I'm not even sure what I am longing for. A world completely separate from this reality, I think. And I am very happy with my life, but it's still a feeling I get. Etherial music can be a real trigger for that.
