Hi all I'm new
As an INFP I have found myself enter some pretty poisonous relationships in the past where the common features in these "friendships" would include:
- Complain to me about all lifes i'll's and have no time for my problems
- I am taken for granted and expendable (being stonewalled at random)
- Vent their frustrations out on me directly or with little subtle remarks
My desire to explore these people's personalities and quickness to offer them some moral support can get me trapped into a very unhealthy relationship where my only power is to walk away.. at which point my value suddenenly skyrockets and they come crawling back but eventually it slowly turns into the same old crap again.
I have been getting advice from an ISTJ to just look out for myself and not bother taking up with these "losers". Sometimes I think he is right.
Any thoughts and any similar experiences?
