What We Ought To Be Worrying About
Thaddeus Bradley from “Now You See Me” says “When a magician waves his hand and says this is where the magic is happening, the real trick is happening somewhere else MISDIRECTION.”
What are you constantly watching over? What makes you lose sleep at night?
I for one (an INFP) find myself ruminating on how trees are being chopped down by the second, some species on the road to extinction, natural disasters upping their game all over the place…
But you’re ought to just fix your attention on whether you’re adding to the dysfunction or not Zothile
It’s quite alright to be appalled at the wrong that plagues the planet but don’t bother exhuming buried hatchets and adopting battles that aren’t yours. The world is beyond broken, the fissures and cracks date back to years before our existence – if you attempt to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders you’ll die a thousand deaths.
Anyway, none of us here are in any position to fix anything at the moment. I mean, most of us don’t even have all our ducks in a row. Here comes the MISDIRECTION. You get so caught up in trying to reverse the atrocities that you are compelled to disregard the turbulence inside you. Oh the irony, the only chaos we’re able to control is left untamed while we pursue the impossible. If we cannot attend to the hurricanes that rage on inside of us then our efforts to change the world for the better are just drops in the ocean. Just worry about being the best you you can be, may worry propel you to be the epitome of perfection.
Worry about how you’re going to trade in your unsavoury traits for sweetness.
There is constant change around us, the external forces should have no impact on us. We should worry about remaining steadfast, worry about your wall of defense.
But then again worrying is time consuming and exhausting, the fatigue will have you thinking you’ve worked hard and you give yourself a pat on the back… it will have you scribbling away aimlessly all over an atlas and have you believing you’ve put yourself on the map.
Worry, the silt in a river. Worry without action? Futile
The real magic emanates from within, what have you to offer when all you possess is anxiety and worry.
Being an intuitive, feeling and prospecting person I find myself down in the doldrums over all the bad in the world I can’t fix, so here goes…
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change them,
And wisdom to know the difference.
As a fellow INFP, I love this post!! ?
Knowing that I’m not the only INFP around is heart warming. Thank you???
