No truer word wast spake. If you've got to spend the rest of your lfie in work, you might as well pick something that you enjoy. It sounds so simple, but it rarely is. But it's worth it.
Everything that Rho said. ;D
Be true, and know thyself. Courage!
> All 3 of these people share one thing. They have not separated themselves from the thing they really want to do. Look, if we are all 4s & Infps, then we are probably artistic, or we want to do something to make things better, something we can feel connected to. My point is that if the professional world - the drudgery & soul-killer life in an office is getting you down, you have to get out. And that means finding the thing you are really supposed to do now matter how crazy it seems and pursue it, instead of pushing yourself and pushing yourself to fit in.
> NOw, no matter how hard it is, even if it kills me, I will make a living in music. That is the only way I can stay sane. I think the unhappiness most of us (4/infp-s) have at work is not a question of coping skills or personality or whatever. It is because weneed to be doing work that is more true to who we are. It may take some time to fully recover the person one is supposed to be, but getting to that point will make life better. At least, that's how it seems to me.
