INFP Question

There was a time in my life when I asked everyone if they knew any good depressive songs because I “wanted to get high” (and when I did that they looked at me as if I were a total psycho). Now, some sad/depressive songs that I can think of are:

1) Elliott Smith - “Twilight”

2) (Also by) Elliott Smith - “Between The Bars”

3) The Script - “I’m Yours" 

4) Lifehouse - "Storm” (the acoustic version)

5) (Also by) Lifehouse - “Simon”

6) Lifehouse - “Signs Of Life”

7) Lifehouse – “Everything”

7) Bette Midler - “The Rose”

8) Blue October - “Black Orchid”

9) Gavin DeGraw - “Tracks of my Tears”

10) Damien Rice - “The Blower’s Daughter”

11) Snow Patrol - “Run”

And some other “weird”/nice songs I like are John Grant’s “I Wanna Go To Marz” (ft. Midlake), Lana Del Ray’s “Video Games”, Guns & Roses’ - “Don’t Cry”, Hinder’s “Lips Of An Angel” and Sara Bareilles’ “Winter Song” (ft. Ingrid Michaelson)

Any other suggestions?

INFP Confession #1220

INFPs are always described as weak, sensitive beings that can’t  face reality and stand up for themselves and they’re always crying like a baby (no offense). Now, I find myself completeley caught up in the INFP label. I mean, I’ve always been daydreaming but, now, some days I completely lose in touch with reality just because it’s an INFP thing. Someone here said that there is more to life than escapism. That we shouldn’t get caught up in it and that it’s poison. I totally agree. It’s ruining my life. I’m also being inauthentic with people. And in class I’m known as this serious, quiet girl that sits alone, talks to no one and never has fun. Like, if I try to break through this image that people have of me if I open up more to people and show them how cool I am, it wouldn’t be right. I wouldn’t be an INFP.

Don’t get me wrong though. Finding out I’m an INFP was great and it showed me that I’m not alone. It’s just that… I’m afraid that it has started ruining my life (or, maybe, I’m overthinking and I’m self-absorbed or I put all the blames on it).

Recently, a friend of mine told me that I have changed a lot since last year (last year is when I found out I’m an INFP and it was one of the best years of my life). I want to be that person again. I am strong. And so are you. So, will you,please, try to break through the INFP label? Will you do it for me?

INFP Confession #1081

Whenever I say that the world is beautiful and that I love everyone people tell me that I think all is made out of fairytales, that I should be more down-to-earth and that my life is not going to be easy. And when I say that the world is mean and that I hate everybody they say to me: “Oh, come on. The world’s fine!”. Go figure…
