Roads

Roads lead somewhere…….right? 
I feel like i’ve been on the same road for a year. Just riding along. Never getting off at an exit, never turning, just watching the seasons change on the trees around me. I need an turn, an exit, a change. I need something new, something that will make me feel better about myself.I feel like this road isn’t taking me anywhere, I’m on the wrong one, I’m twenty one years old, I should know by now what I want to do with life. But I still have no idea. There are things that I enjoy doing but I don’t think I’m not good enough to do them for a living, but at the same time I don’t want to stuck at high school jobs for the rest of my life, and scariest thing about all of this is, I don’t know how to go about changing my life. I’m always gonna have that road, and I can always get back on it, but for now I need to take an exit.

  1. Hi Sunflower. First of all, thank you so much for following my blog, Parallelaphors, where I will be posting much more about INFPs.

    Secondly, as an INFP with a few decades on you, I can tell you that I felt exactly the same when I was your age. It is not easy for INFPs to situate themselves in a career in this awful extroverted society. My advice to you is get to know yourself and love yourself, and follow your heart. This is the only way you will find satisfying work. For INFPs, this is critical. Don’t try to fit yourself into a society, career or work environment that forces you to be or do something that you aren’t passionate about. It took me decades to work my way into something that fits me. I’m now a freelance writer, but I limit my paid work and am working on my own writing now.

    You might want to check out the Kiersey Temperament Sorter – it’s a questionnaire that is designed to help you find a career that suits you, based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Doing this was truly a turning point in my life, because it was the first time I found out I was INFP. And the career advice I got based on my answers to the questionnaire was me to a tee.

    When you’re young, like you are, you have a lot more energy to spin your wheels with compared to when you get older, when your body refuses to take any more self-punishment administered through stress. Do yourself a favor and do what you do best – turn inward and you will find the answers you seek. Don’t waste your energy by ignoring what your heart and guts are trying to tell you and “fit in” to a humdrum, robotic work life that seems to suit the majority of people in this society.

    Best of luck to you in finding your path in this world. I hope you’ll let me know how you’re getting on.

    Big hugs – Miriam

  2. I am in the exact same boat! It is incredibly and increasingly frustrating as the days go on. I found out that I am an INFP, and the world is certainly not designed to align with us. I wish you luck on your journey, and I hope you find what you are searching for!
