The more I learn about myself the more I love myself.
I think understanding ourselves is the key to acceptance and celebration. Accepting who we are (I pack last minute for a trip no matter how much time I have on my hands). Accepting who we are not (I am not someone who is going to pack in advance no matter how much time I have on my hands.) When we learn who we are and, perhaps more importantly, who we are not, we can find our place in the world. We can find our PEACE in the world.
And we can stop pushing against other people too.
For example, I’m an ENFP. In Myers-Briggs speak that means I am extroverted, I love big ideas and future thinking, I’m feeling-oriented, and I love options. The more options the better. So am I going to like a job where I work alone, doing small, repetitive tasks based on detailed data with a set schedule, every day?
Oh my gosh no.
I’m also not going to pack my suitcase in advance. (Have I mentioned that already?)
But someone is.
And once I learned about Myers-Briggs and realized not everyone thinks data analysis is the equivalent of mental sunburn–like oh-my-gosh some people love it as much as I love talking about the nature of consciousness–I found myself relaxing.
I don’t have to be like them and they don’t have to be like me.
The world really is full of amazing people, all parts of a big, beautiful whole.
I’m also a Highly Sensitive Person. Which means I startle easily and can’t handle loud noises. But I’m also really sensitive to frequencies which is why I’m an excellent Law of Attraction Guide. I honestly can tell when people are aligned. I can sense it.
I can even feel it because I’m a Highly Sensitive Person AND an empath. Which is like HSP+ because my emotions and your emotions... whose is whose? You can imagine the hijinks that ensued in my 20's navigating relationships before I learned energetic boundaries.
And my love language is Words of Affirmation. So if you say something nice or make me laugh, I’m putty in your hands. Unless your intentions are not good. Because you know I can feel them.
Oh, and come to find out ENFPs are often totally into the spiritual realms. So you can say I’m destined to be sitting here right now talking about big ideas of consciousness and change with you.
We pick who we want to be before we are born you know.
How about you?
How do you recharge, absorb data, make decisions, and feel loved?
