"It’s late. I can’t sleep. Feeling overly sentimental and I wanted to share something intensely vulnerable. It’s the reason behind my devastating, incurable love for the INFP mind, heart and soul.
We are dominant feelers in a cold world. We are raging rivers of inner turmoil and emotion. We love deeply, we think deeply. We bleed feeling.
Almost two years ago I met, purely by fate, an INFP who literally saved my life. I decided I wanted to take my own life after 16 years of abuse from a toxic marriage and religious institution. The INFP was a writer doing a story on my background.
With surgeon hands, gentle and steady, he removed my heart and carefully loved it back to health through his friendship, humor, tenderness and care. He was there- a steady, calming presence when I was strong AND when I was weak. We literally laughed and wept together. I was enough with him and for some reason I brought him the same peace he brought me.
He saved my life.
Took the rope I wanted to hang myself with and held me until the storm passed. He showed me I was beautiful and he allowed me to love his soul.
I still wake up calling his name in tears. We aren’t meant to be, I know this but he showed me what COULD be.
Tenderness, love, deep, soulful, vulnerable, accepting, unconditional, non-judging love, joy, peace, a safe haven. Passion. Friendship. And…
Understanding- pure and powerful.
I love you INFPs. I’m grateful for your gifts, your way of moving me. I’m sorry this world doesn’t get you or appreciate you like it should. I’m sorry you hurt. You are beautiful. Don’t get hard or callous. Embrace your raging river and inner world. It’s inspiring and breathtaking.
And by the way- if I ever meet one of you mesmerizing INFP men out in this vast real world- let me love you.”
Can I just say that you’re beautiful and I love you even though I don’t know you and how grateful I am for your understanding and how I wish I know someone like you in real life and how incredibly lucky both you AND the guy that you met were in just having met each other? Thank you <3
I cry because I love you.
