I know you’re taking care of everyone around you right now, being your most INFJ caring self. But your self-care really matters at this time, too. In fact, it matters so much more now. If you know you need to calm anxiety, connect with others who understand you completely and learn more about yourself—but can’t figure out HOW—I'm here to help. INFJ Community creates the space and support you need for true self-care.
Every single day we go through the motions of shallow conversations... the cashier at the grocery store, the customer service person on the phone, the meeting for work... one after another.
Years go by of pretending to be social and happy in these situations while deep inside we're dying for something more. We start to think we hate people because we just can't be interested in one more conversation about the weather or that new sitcom on TV. Our soul aches every time we think we find someone who wants to talk about the meaning of life only to realize they are trying to convert us to a new religion.
The thing is, we don't actually hate people, we hate the shallow conversations that we're forced to have with them. We just need some other INFJ's to connect with.
So many INFJs choose this path. We think that we can do everything alone, that we don't really need anyone. When we have a choice as to whether or not to put yourself out there, we generally choose to curl up into ourselves. We are determined not to admit that we don't have all the answers. We don't ask for help.
It’s an all-too-common story.
But you don’t have to go-it-alone. There is another (better!) path…
The We're in This Together Path is different. It’s not the default. It’s one you have to choose. But it brings hope and rest even in tough seasons. Because, finally, you’re connected to yourself and to others again…
When you are on the Connected Path, you think…
The Connected Path is a path of empowerment. It’s the path where we invite in the coaching and community we need to reconnect. Together, we steady ourselves with simple connections and self-care practices. And, on that path, we find that we even have grace to spare, which we can share with others who need it.
The INFJ Community exists to support your emotional and mental health and well-being, no matter what’s going on in the world. It’s a safe place to connect with other INFJs, get coaching from me and other INFJ experts and get inspired by others on the road to wellness.
When I was growing up I had a terrible time making friends. I was so much different from everyone else. I just didn't relate to them at all. I went to a bunch of different schools in grade school and never had any of those friends that were forever friends. It was a new struggle every year.
Since I got out of school not much has really changed. I'd make friends that were more like acquaintances at work, but as soon as I went home we never spoke. And when I left one job I rarely kept up with anyone.
I felt like there was something really wrong with me. Why did everyone else seem to connect with others and I just couldn't? Why did I understand people so well, yet no one understood me?
When I was in high school I took a personality test and found out that I was INFJ. I wish I could say this was a turning point for me, but it wasn't. It was just one more assignment that I got through and threw in a box as I moved on to the next thing.
Several years later I was going through a really hard time in my life. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I struggled for a reason to keep going. I felt so lost and alone I didn't know what to do. I started searching for answers. That's when I rediscovered my personality type. I realized that I am different from everyone else and it's completely fine to be that way. I don't need to change for anyone. I was made this way for a reason.
And you are too!
I set out on a journey to help others learn about their INFJ personality type and to make sure that every INFJ knows that they are not alone or broken or messed up. We were made this way on purpose and we each have special gifts to share with the world!
Not just today while we are going through a difficult time, but all the time, every day, through every change, difficulty, and triumph we face in our lives!
Today, I want to offer you not just my support, but the chance to join an already thriving community of amazing INFJs—people who will be the greatest supporters of your personality and self-care, who’ll help you finally step onto the Connected Path.
