First off, hi. I am not sure if this has been tackled before, so I apologize if it has (I sincerely request that it be moved if there is a similar yet older thread); but I took a job at a law firm nine months ago (I am an INFJ lawyer. Yes, I know.), and it seems as though I've been given a workload that should be taken on by three people. Preparing for trials, checking evidence, documents, etc., sometimes with a one-day working time--all of this seems to have taken its toll on me and I am now ready to admit, I am stressed. (Hard thing to admit really.)
Anyway, I feel like when I'm this stressed, I tend to put off the work that needs to be done, procrastinate, and I think this is the worst aspect of my personality. Second to that is my almost complete inability to ask people for help. I don't mean to generalize of course, and in fact I would like to know how other INFJs might deal with this sort of physical and psychological stress. Usually, I would have liked to take as long as I needed to recuperate/repair my self, my soul, but the law is such a non-INFJ world, I guess, and everything must be compartmentalized. Which means even this, my "healing" so to speak, needs to happen as soon as possible. Help!
