I’ve been recently accused of being too sensitive at least twice. Yes, ACCUSED. It’s never meant as a compliment. The first time, it was my former flatmate, the most obnoxious and hypocritical guy that I’ve ever met. He said that by treating me like a doormat, he was doing me a favor, because the world […]

Let’s make it clear: loneliness is very different from solitude. We are born alone, we live alone, and so we die alone. And that’s OK. Being alone is perfectly enjoyable, it’s the me-time all introverts need to recharge and recover from the state of being overwhelmed by too much stimulation. I absolutely love spending time […]

Hello, my name is Marta and I’m a compulsive book buyer. At home, I have literally tons of them, so whenever I see a bookstore, the rational adult within me drags my inner child to the other side of the street. Yet, it doesn’t happen often that a book changes my entire life. I’m not […]

Working for a narcissistic boss is like walking blindfolded on a minefield: one false step is enough to trigger an explosion. It may not kill you, but it will mangle your soul and shatter your mental health. As some of your already know, not a long time ago I quit my unsatisfying job in the […]

I’m turning 28 today. Even though I’ve been an adult for the last 10 years and changed a lot, I still feel like a child’s mind trapped in an adult body. I get excited about simple things like a 5-year-old. Not that I’m in denial, on the contrary. I am actually very pleased to have […]

As any real INFP, I completely suck at accepting and handling criticism. Of course, no one enjoys being criticized, but the INFPs truly hate it. Alas, we can even find criticism where none was intended, which is, no doubt, a superpower. We take everything so personally because we put our whole hearts in whatever we […]

I’ll be completely honest with you. It’s hard to be a mental health blogger when you suffer from anxiety and try to deal with depression yourself. Especially, when you’re INFP at the same time. We are notorious for handling criticism badly and for being harsh on ourselves, which are precisely the qualities that prevent us […]

To be an INFP is to be a walking paradox. We are authentic, deeply feeling creatures, which makes us the comfortable people to be around. We give acceptance and understand others’ emotions without judging. We love deeply. But feeling too much is also our burden, and hence the paradox. Our biggest weaknesses are the same […]

You have no idea how powerful your thoughts are. Thoughts – mental events produced by consciousness – can, in fact, affect matter, and I don’t mean bending spoons with a gaze. Studies have proven that thoughts alone are capable of improving vision, fitness, and strength. Think about the placebo effect, for example. It’s not the […]

The first half of February is a hard time for singles – especially for those of us who happen not to be loving it. As there is love in the air, the atmosphere gets pretty unbearable. Especially in bigger cities, where we’re constantly attacked with useless heart-shaped kitsch thingies and special Valentine’s offers for couples. […]
ABOUT ME

INFP. A sensitive, yet adventurous soul on a never-ending quest for the meaning of life and the reasons behind human behavior. Sometimes, a I'm frolicking unicorn pooping rainbows. On other occasions, I can be as deep as the Mariana Trench. After some psychotherapy and medication, I am seeing my depression as a source of positive changes and self growth. If I could choose any superpower I wanted, it would be healing.
