Why are we here?

I just don't understand why INFP's are here. I'm one, and life is extremely difficult. Every single altruistic thing I try to do is met with blank, cold, unempathizing stares. Plus, I read somewhere how supposedly INFP's are defenders of the realm, white warriors or something that stand up for what is right. Well if that is the case, and we're assuming there is a God why doesn't God or the universe or the force make things a little bit easier for INFP's? I mean if we're already doing altruistic things that should be done, why so much resistance on the part of the Universe? Sorry I'm venting a bit. :unsure:

The world though isn't shaped by a supreme being or any sense of fairness. This is what humanity has made out of it, and we are a violent species. But for the uncaring, horrific things about there are still a great amount of good things that give me hope. Yes people hurt each other, but then there are the doctors and nurses that have dedicated their lives to trying to save people. Yes there are many horrible areas in the world to live, but still people give a lot to try and help those unfortunate souls.
There will always be people who appreciate goodness, kindess and altruism. If your family don't then you should probably distance yourself from them and seek out those who do.

"Every cloud has a silver lining" they say, just don't let the black clouds of evil people block your sight of it.

I found this really great article written by someone on how it feels to be an INFP, and it touches on some of the things in this topic.

"I feel that being an INFP is like being an alien...."
I think you'll dig this, from a fellow INFP 17 years ago. :happy:

Amazing how similar our thoughts can be....
