That's partly why I posted that on here specifically. This issue has been niggling away at me for quite some time and I wanted some input from people who didn't know me and who weren't going to be judgemental. I knew that people on here would be more likely to understand and more likely to empathise/relate to me than say people on a very public forum such as digitalspy. I wouldn't really dare to post what I'd posted elsewhere because I know that people would just say stuff along the lines of 'get a life' or some other kind of dismissive comment, without knowing the true extent of the problem and without knowing the kind of person I am. At least on here, I feel a sense of understanding and a sense that, although we're all different and we all lead different lives, we sort of 'know' each other, if you get what I mean?
Yeah, 'mutual' help sounds good to me. I don't remember where I read this, but 'a problem shared is a problem halved'. I pretty much agree with that, but for some inexplicable reason, I never share my problems- well, not in real life anyway! I'd feel like I'm burdening the other person, but on here it's different, I feel (and hope) that I'm helping in some way by divulging my dilemmas as people can relate to my experiences and vice versa. Most of us on here are INFJs, all rare and complex, and therefore likely to be misunderstood, so we can seek solace on here with people who are alike. Personally, every time I log onto the home page, I instantly see a thread title that is either interesting or that I can really relate to. This happens on every occasion I sign in without fail. It is a bit strange, but nice and gratifying too.
We'll keep in touch, and if at any time, you want some help or advice or even words of comfort, then you know who you can contact. :thumb:
Well at one point I may have completely agreed with you. Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris ("It is a comfort to the unfortunate to have had companions in woe.") But often what I feel when I hear of others that suffered what I suffered, is remorse and pity... making me feel worse. I make sure to hide myself whenever possible to suffer in isolation and silence. We are the types to be highly empathetic as well so taking on the feelings of others can sometimes be too much. Which is often the case with myself these days. I fear I'm heading down the wrong path with all of this. I wish a better fate for you.
No worries... I've dealt with the same for 10 years now. Though it has been a nightmare its given me many opportunities of self-reflection and personal growth that probably wouldnt have been available to me if I turned out to be the social misfit I have a feeling I would've turned out to be.
Yup, they were ones I haven't heard as well as Adele, Janella Monae, Jukebox the Ghost and Dropping Daylight. I really like the guitar in Carnival of Rust. I'm not a big brass fan but I still like Your Ex-lover is Dead coz their vocals and lyrics are really good
Yeah, meaning behind lyrics is also important. At the moment I really like recreating and doing covers of songs, so I guess when I listen to songs I also look for potential. People sometimes don't generally like the originals of the songs I pick to sing but they like what I've done with them. I really like going through the songs in triplej unearthed, there's some good stuff there because the artists are pretty much just starting out.
Definitely good taste, you've done a good job perfecting... though there are a few there I don't know... I'll have to look them up, though I'm sure they're just as brilliant as the rest
I'm a bit all over the place with my likes and dislikes. I don't tend to stick to any one band/artist for some reason. Still experimenting and exploring I go through stages of what I look for in music. At the moment it's inspiration and a unique twist. I turn a few mainstream heads
