I know this was posted somewhere under the INFJ forum, but felt like posting something of similar nature in INFP forum..My apologies if I repeat myself too often heh..
Anyway, have you ever had a "just knowing" about certain aspects of your life, regardless of what is shown on the surface or in present reality?
...a ''just knowing'' that someone is not right for you, even though he/she seemed alright at that time and much later, it turns out that you were right.
...a ''just knowing'' that these few friends are the ones who will change you the most eventually
...a ''just knowing'' that you are perfect for a job or a line of work
...a ''just knowing'' what dream you are meant to pursue in life
...a ''just knowing'' that a stranger will be someone you truly connect with on many levels.
I've had so many of these in my life...
..I ''just knew'' that my third ex would break my trust and abuse my emotions, but I ignored it in favor of what seemed to be right on the outside. It turns out I was correct.
..I ''just knew'' that I would connect deeply with my second ex again, even though I knew it would be very tricky and a bit of a roller-coaster ride that might go on for years. It turns out I was correct.
..I ''just knew'' that two people I knew on youtube since 2009 would turn out to be my best friends, even though at first the interactions were only online. It turns out I was correct.
..I ''just knew'' that an ex friend was telling lies about me to an ex fling. It turns out I was correct
..I ''just knew'' at one point a long time ago, I would suffer first more in my academic area and as compensation, my personal life will be more stable than it. It turns out, contrary to reason and logic at first (logically it had seemed I would do fine in academics), I was correct.
..I ''just knew'' that I would regret not cutting out a few people in my life soon enough. It turns out I was correct.
..I ''just knew'' when would be the time to grow apart from my closest friends. It turns out I was correct.
..I ''just knew'' that I would get unexpected insights and answers by opening up more on this INFP forum and starting random threads. It turns out I was correct :crazy:
I have a lot of ''just knowing'' about where I'm going, where I'm heading, what's meant for me right now too. But I'm not sure if it's wise to share those precious aspects. I do have a strong ''just knowing'' thing, but argh, I HATE MY FEARS that block it.
