No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.

"Do not confuse a broken person for an evil person.
A broken person can be fixed an evil person cannot.
An evil person causes pain, they hurt others. They deliberately cause chaos.
A broken person would never do any of those things because they know how it feels to be on the other side of those actions.
Don't confuse someone who can be saved with someone that you will need to be saved from." #mentalhealthlove #bipolar1&2 #INFJ #INFP



I feel like I'm perhaps far too introspective when it comes to myself, my brain can't seem to stop analyzing why I do certain things when I make mistakes, or what my response to something should be, or should have been, etc. In some ways this is good, I take note of what could be behind my mistakes. Was it childhood influences? Anxieties? Misjudging my own feelings?
However while this can help, it also plays a part in making it so hard to rest properly, and to concentrate on other things. Anyone else relate and have any helpful suggestions? I'd appreciate it! #INFP #AttentiondeficitDisorder


When you feel so weak/afraid/paralyzed/bored/stuck/depressed that you know you are letting your loved ones down

Sorry for the long tittle lol
My depression comes and goes. The anxiety is always lurking. But when they both are real bad, I realize that I am not living up to my expectations muchless my loved ones expectations. What do I mean by that? Well part of the reason I don't think i'll ever have a child is because I struggle leaving the house. How could I be a good mom that can't leave the house?
It makes me feel like a failure sometimes to read about woman and moms that can seem to juggle jobs, kids, a wife/husband, pets, and whatever else that I would consider big things (like leaving the house alone) just small stepping stones for them. Does anyone else feel like this?
Like you can't be who you are supposed to be because of a mental illness? And your letting everyone down, but there is nothing you can do but possibly push them away?

New to app

Hey everyone, I’ve only just downloaded this app, how great is it!! I often write my feelings down to get them out of my head and off the replay loop. Ive just uploaded one of these I - hope it resonates with some of you and I look forward to engaging with people just as dedicated to mental health awareness as myself. #mentalhealthwarriors #WritingThroughIt #Anxiety #Depression #Bipolar #INFP



I suffer from social anxiety, depression and PTSD. I'm a personality type INFP-T, and it's a very taxing and extensive process for me to open up to others, and it's very difficult to find someone who understands me. It has only happened a few times. In 35 years. My name is Megan. #INFP #SocialAnxiety #PTSD


Navigating #Extroverted waters as an #Introvert

Hi ! I’m new here and I am so glad to have found a place where I can share how I feel. I have a #Scorpio #INFP personality and as a deeply introverted being, I find that my biggest dilemma is that I feel to much and perhaps my biggest “flaw” is that I give my all to people who really don’t deserve it. Frustrations become internalized and resentment dictates a lot of my interactions. I can’t even begin to tell you how many friends, acquaintances that I have burned bridges with due to my inability to “communicate.” I have heard “why don’t you say it” way too many times and in my mind I’m just thinking “it’s harder than you think.” I have a lot to say, but I am afraid of hurting feelings if I were to tell people how I really felt or what I thought and so I keep it to myself. A lot of my frustrations come from the fact that people, society caters to extroverts , I am thirty and I college for the first time in almost a decade away and that dynamic is incredibly true of the dynamic in the classroom. People interpret those that are quite or reserved as uninterested, not engaged, perhaps not as intelligent. All of which couldn’t be furthest from the truth ! People keep telling me I need to speak up and find my voice .... I’ve had my voice and there was never a time in my life where I had lost my sense of it .
