@Lyssah: Haha, the person was just defensive and actually apologized for his/her gut reactions, and she seemed to really want to talk about it. So, it's nice to see someone reaffirm my beliefs, even if I didn't see it at the time! =)
I hate children. I work at a summer day camp for 6-10 year olds and it's slowly draining my soul away. Children are energy vampires. They literally suck the energy out of all the adults around them and use it for their own purpose. All I do after work is sleep and sometimes cry. I feel like I have no energy to interact with anyone in my spare time, as well as no energy to do the things I love, such as all of the reading I planned to do over the summer :(.
I hate having to constantly discipline misbehaving children and listen to their screaming and whining all day long. And having to wear a fake smile and tell them how wonderful they all are when I truly feel like they are all overly spoiled and entitled little brats who have no appreciation for artwork or anything that we try to teach them. I can't stand their personalities for the most part. As an introvert, I find socializing all day extremely draining, not to mention with extremely immature and loud children. This job is the complete opposite of my personality, especially since I never plan to have kids and don't really identify or sympathize with most of them :/... I can barely learn their names by the end of the week, I have to fake enthusiasm all week areound them but truly have no desire to get to know them. Being around them makes me feel like I have no emotions and I literally have to drink like 4 cups of coffee throughout the day just to get through it and then I have the worst headaches by the end of the day. It is now 8:00pm and I am going to bed, even though I just had a 3 hour nap after getting home. I can feel my mental, emotional, and physical well-being just deteriorating...
I cannot emphasize how much I dislike being around children >.>......
The Olympics has me pumped up to start working out again seriously. I see those athletes and the way they discipline themselves, and it puts me to shame.
I know it's in the nature of INFP's to become hermetic, but you can still work out in a solitary place.
There's a patriotic old song called "This Is My Country." I confess that I'm a bad American. I paraphrase the lyrics to sing to my dog.
With gusto: "This is MYYYYYYYYY puppy; to have and to hold!"
Deep down, everybody is a 15 year old pimple faced youth, no matter how old you are.
No matter how much adults try to mask their fear, they are oblivious to the fact that they can revert to their childish ways with but a sad memory, or a loss, or something traumatic that triggers the collapse of their facade.
I live vicariously through reading others' experiences online.
i am so emotionally affected by everything. i take everything personally. even things that happen to other people. i am never sure of whether i absolutely hate everyone or absolutely love everyone. i think it's the latter, i just can't let people get close. they take advantage of everything.
