How the Reverse Bucket List Promotes Confidence, Motivation, and Gratitude

How to write a Reverse #Bucketlist

Being and introverted INFJ, sometimes I feel like I don’t do “big things”, which is ok, but I don’t want to look back and realize that I’ve lived a small life. I may be in my 40s, but there are still things I want to do. Bucket lists are fine for that, but there are times when they feel like it’s more of a “to do list” hanging over my head, haunting me with the fact that I still  haven’t done them. This can make me feel unaccomplished when the items don’t get crossed off in a timely manner. Buckets […]

Setting Boundaries to Protect the INFJ Relationship

Setting boundaries to protect INFJ relationships.

Most INFJs are all about people, so it’s no surprise that I’ve struggled with setting boundaries with certain people in my life. Unfortunately, this can breed resentment and even avoidance, in some cases, so it’s better to deal with it rather than internalizing it, as many INFJ personality types often do. I want you to consider the people in your life that you struggle to be around. The ones who are repeatedly hurtful or harmful, whether it is intentional or not. You may already feel trepidatious around these people, and that is a clue that you need to set boundaries to […]

Why Being Highly Sensitive is Awesome

Why I love being an HSP.

There are some really great things about being highly sensitive. It’s sometimes very difficult to differentiate my INFJ personality from my highly sensitive nature, though, because they overlap each other at times, but I’d like to talk about the best parts of being a highly sensitive person (HSP). Being an HSP is both a blessing and a curse. My emotions can quickly get the best of me, which can lead to arguments, worry and sleepless nights. The physical sensitivities can be anything from a minor environmental annoyance to having negative reactions to coffee, pills, or even food. We are sensitive […]

10 Ways Introverts are Like Cats

How #introverts are like cats. #introverted #cat

From what I read online, many introverts, like myself, have cats. I did not know that, and, as it turns out, I have always had a cat. It never occurred to me that maybe I was drawn to them because we were so similar to each other, but it dawned on me the other day – cats are crazy introverted. As I watched her curl up under the dining room table last week, like she always does during the day, I started thinking about her routine, habits, and idiosyncrasies. They are more than a little interesting, but somewhat predictable, after […]

Cool subscription boxes, DIY ideas, and #gifts for #introverts.

If you have an introvert in your life, you might find it a little tedious to find them the perfect gift, or something they don’t already have. Being an introvert myself, I don’t think I’m especially hard to shop for, but according to the people in my life, I am. I think “picky” is the word they used for me, so I though it might be helpful to put together a list of gifts for introverts that aren’t necessarily exclusive to them, but might be loved by one. Some of these gifts are unisex and some will be more geared […]

Self-care is not unique to INFJs, but many introverts require a little extra self-care due to our natural tendencies towards anxiety, depression, and stress.
