Empath Humor – Surprise

I don’t like surprises.  I’m a total killjoy and even feel awkward receiving presents.

This…?  So funny I nearly laughed myself off my chair…

All you empath, INFJ, introvert types will probably do the same.

Empath Humor – First Instinct

*lol*

I’m definitely more an animal person than people person. . . I mean, I do okay around people, and it’s nice not to be isolated all the time, but I’ve caught myself feeling like “please just get away from me” plenty!

Empath Humor – Voicemail

I’ve done this – which applies to introverts, empaths, INFJ types 1,000% – so many times I can’t count!

I’m NOT a phone person.  I don’t want people to call.  I don’t want messages.  I don’t even want notifications of messages!

Better Than My Solitude

This quotation jumped out at me when I saw it posted in the ether some time ago… It rings so very true for me.  I couldn’t say whether it is a result of an empathic heart, INFJ tendencies, or the heavily-leaning introverted side of a potentially ambiverted personality. . .

My solitude is my sanity, and there are times when I must shut out all but what my body does involuntarily – my beating heart, and a chest which rises and falls like the tides, my sole companions.

For a long, long time, the thought of anyone in my space bordered on “terrifying.”  It was not specifically a fear of loss, whether to freedom, or privacy, or presence…but more that my soul needed the expanse in which to re-calibrate and recharge.  It felt almost like an affront to my very essence to have someone impede spatially in my life – as if I had no sanctuary my own.

I’m still a lot like a lone wolf, but there is one person with whom I am blessed beyond rhyme and reason to have in my life.  And he…he won me over so much so that his presence challenged my comfort zone…and single-handedly defeated it.
