ENFJ

Who you usually go for: The one who gives you half as much as you give them. The one who you really really really like, but doesn’t necessarily like you as much back. You believe in hard work when it comes to relationships, and you’re determined to prove that you’re faithful and trustworthy. This only works for as long as it takes for you to figure out that the reason the relationship seems to be at a plateau is because: your effort alone cannot keep the ship sailing.

Who you should go for: The one who tries. Someone who acknowledges that passion is important, but understands that effort is what truly keeps people together. Someone who initiates as often as you do…

Why it’s Crucial for Women to Heal the Mother Wound

Womb Of Light

What many people do not realize is that the core issue at the center of women’s empowerment is the mother wound.

ElizabethBauman

Difficulty and challenges between mothers and daughters are rampant and widespread but not openly spoken about. The taboo about speaking about the pain of the mother wound is what keeps it in place and keeps it hidden in shadow, festering and out of view.

What exactly is the mother wound?

The mother wound is the pain of being a woman passed down through generations of women in patriarchal cultures. And it includes the dysfunctional coping mechanisms that are used to process that pain.

The mother wound includes the pain of:

  • Comparison: not feeling good enough
  • Shame: consistent background sense that there is something wrong with you
  • Attenuation: Feeling you must remain small in order to be loved
  • Persistent sense of guilt for wanting more than you currently have

Thought Catalog

INFJ – Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Judging. INFJs are known to be great listeners, big dreamers, and deep, complex people. As the rarest personality type INFJ’s only make up less than 3% of the population. If you’ve taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator you probably know what you’re categorized as but these are some signs of a classic INFJ.

1. You’re always in search of a deeper meaning. At work, in relationships, with friends, and interactions with strangers you’re continually looking at life and situations in an obscure way to discover what’s beyond the surface.

2. Although people have an easy time connecting with you sometimes you can be a difficult person to really know. You value your privacy and often feel like you can only be your “true self” around those closest to you.

3. You’re a highly empathetic and sensitive person with an innate ability…

Twitter

Twitter is dreadfully witty, oddly knowledgeable and incredibly precise in his delivery. He’s that kid who could never ‘apply himself’ in high school but somehow made it into Harvard, dropped out after one year then become a multi-millionaire by age 24. You can find him at every party ever, doing lines in the bathroom and excitedly telling everybody how his ADHD helped him get ahead in life.

Myers-Briggs personality type: ENTP

Facebook

Facebook is that popular girl from high school who organized your ten-year reunion for the sole reason of judging everyone else’s success against her own. You go to her for all the latest gossip but she has this particular habit of making you feel vaguely bad about yourself when she points out that everyone else is doing better than you. Only redeems herself by re-introducing you to your old crush who she tells you is recently divorced…
