As an NF type, it's easy to turn my emotions on or off. Sometimes, I find myself caring more than I should. Even when I know that caring for them is draining or otherwise harmful to my own emotional wellbeing, I can't bring myself to disengage with certain people.
Has anyone figured out how to successfully do this while maintaining a level of warmness? It's not always possible to simply avoid people when they are coworkers, family, or friends. I am usually good at putting people into groups with varying levels of caring assigned to them, but when I am already emotionally not balanced, this system breaks down. What strategies do you use?
