I’ve kept you long past our expiration date.
You see, INFJs tend to do that. Because connection with others is like the white buffalo for us, we will often fight tooth and nail to keep that someone we connect with in our lives. Even when it’s unhealthy… Or one-sided…Or all about them.
But I want to keep them.
Says my inner self, who has never been known for her good decisions.
[She’s never been good at letting go, either]
Did you know that a keep is a tower built within the walls of castles during the Middle Ages? They were used as a refuge of last resort should the rest of the castle fall to an enemy.
“Last resort.” Yeah. Ok. I get it.
I guess I could keep them as a last resort, if nothing else works. But sheesh. Do you have to be so obvious,
Have you ever heard that phrase, “I just can’t quit you”?
That’s how I feel every day.
I’ve kept you long past our expiration date. I don’t care how sour the milk tastes. I love having you around.
But I love all kinds of things that aren’t good for me.
