Hi Rachel !
I can’t believe what happened today so I had to contact you & to tell you 😀 Imagine, I woke up this morning so confuzed about everything – my life, my actions, my ambitions, my family & my friends, my dreams ( and real dreams too, those when you fall asleep ), the boy I’m contacting with, in fact, confuzed about myself and why I feel so empty and alone, when I realy am not, but alone in a way that I don’t feel I truly belong to anyone and anywhere, since I lost love of my life who was the best friend too . I was so happy and fullfiled ( not sure if I spelled it right xD ) for a couple of months, and then began to feel empty, like I didn’t want to contact with my emotions for so long and lately realized I didn’t know how to do it anymore . And today I was casualy texting with one of my friends about what kind of a man I need in my life and an hour later something “hit” me while I was in the shower, and when I came back I told her that what I truly need is just an INFJ person in my life . And later I watched a movie I found in PopcornTime : The Beauty Inside, and when I saw it, I was kind of in love with a movie 🙂 Mostly because I related to it in some way, I often feel like a different person everyday . So the movie inspired me to type that on Google just to find something I relate to, to be less alone . And I chose your article and related SO MUCH and wanted to read more and then I chose REFOCUSING ON A CHANGE OF ENERGY and your thoughts, your arrangement of words and your feelings, It just couldn’t be more perfect at the perfect time 🙂 So I thought IS THIS PERSON MAYBE AN INFJ ? WILL NEVER FIND OUT . . . And then I READ A SENTENCE WHERE YOU WROTE SOMETHING LIKE “As a type 2 Giver, INFJ, . . .” and I couldn’t believe, realy I couldn’t ! So I was so happy and like the emptyness is filled in some way, your words were just like touching my soul and then I found out you are an INFJ ! I mean, I was thinking THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE DAY about wanting to find one of you ! And at one moment of saddness today, I wished I had a Pisces person in my life again 🙂 And then I found you so spontaniously and just at the moment I thought that you are INFJ, and you wrote you’re a Pisces, i remember I read it somewhere ! ( My Moon is in Pisces, that’s probably why I love to have you people around 🙂 )
I just wanted to share that synchronistically thing with you and I would be so happy if we can be friends ! ( ? ) ^^
And even if you don’t reply I will continue to read your blog, because today I found out what I’ve been missing in my soul, and your words are like the wind to my hidden fire 🙂
