I don't know if this personnel (not personal) issue is related to NFs, but I'm taking a wild guess and saying it probably is.
It seems like lots of people are trapped in some emotional state or another and because they believe it is oh-so-complicated and nobody could understand, they limit themselves to the emotional coping strategy equivalent of digging yourself out of prison with this:
What concerns me is that I think these people are going to suffer from their emotional inhibitions for most of their life because they simply won't try something different.
They're usually so concerned about something that they don't realize it's something VERY SIMPLE they don't want to admit for some silly reason or another. What's worse is they seek each other out for support and wallow in their problems as a group, confirming that everything is good (because we're all in this together!) when clearly they are not.
From the outside, I can't help but think they just need to take a break from things and see that we can all be summed up to a simple, single, whole consciousness (individually, of course) and the emotions involved can be dealt with easily this way:
So what gives? Do these kind of people just like to suffer or do they really think these issues are so devastatingly complicated?
