People sometimes mistake our sensitive natures for weakness. That’s a mistake in itself.
INFJ’s are anything but weak. I’ve always been able to adapt to difficult situations, and I’ve faced my share of hard times.
Nothing compared to the suffering I endured at the hands of narcissists, though.
The abuse itself was bad enough. Having someone repeatedly attempt to murder my soul and cause me to question my own sanity was horrific.
Learning to heal from something extremely difficult to understand wasn’t exactly a walk in the park. I’ll admit there were plenty of dark days.
Many times I wondered if I’d ever get over the damage that was done to my spirit and soul. It took lots of prayers, self-reflection,and stubborn determination to bring me back from the pits of hell.
Thanks to certain insights unique to INFJ’s, I was able to figure out why and how I became a victim. I also learned how make sure it never happens again.
People who are facing what I already survived can benefit from my experiences. Being gifted in writing and having a strong desire to help others are traits I’m blessed with because of my personality type.
Surviving narcissistic abuse helped me learn to use those gifts in a productive way. It’s a win-win situation. Not a wound that will never heal.
