@Gloriana: Wonderful response. I suspect pretty much every young INFJ would benefit by reading it.

@Wanderer: To oversimplify, I think the answer lies with such things as getting a little older, growing a tougher skin, and ultimately getting a better sense of who you are. Maybe erecting some personal boundaries and defining yourself in such a way that your sense of personal self-worth will be anchored more inwardly and not so dependent on external people and circumstances.
