Tell me A story

“Tell me the story
about how the moon loved the sun so much…

…that she died every night, just to let him breathe”

A twist on Hanako Ishii’s quote

She was the type to fall in love with the sun and everything that was beautifully unreachable.  She’s not bubbly like the sun, for life has brought too much sorrow.  A sensitive soul that experienced too much before it was ready,  her smile no longer reaches her eyes.

“Can you truly smile again after such sadness?” she asks, “can you light up the day like the sun?”

A couple of weekends ago, I got quite upset.  I have met a truly beautiful person recently and he is wonderful.  I’ve always been the introverted, sensitive type (INFJ) and I always happen to find myself paired with ENFPs – extroverted, the life of the party, thousands of friends etc etc. Anyway, we were at an event and we met the most bubbly girl, honestly she was great. So lovely, friendly, easy to talk to, and observing my partners interactions with her, I started to wonder… Can this girl offer him more than I can?  Does she suit his needs better?

I’m not a bubbly person.  I am complex, deep and sometimes withdrawn and because of this, I wouldn’t say I could be described as bubbly all the time.  Yes, I feel happiness, excitement and all those feelings, but overall I am more melancholic.

I think everyone feels these kind of insecurities every so often and as corny as it sounds, you just have to accept being you and focus on the positive things you can bring to someone’s life.  So instead of shining like the sun for everyone, I muster up whatever light I have and shine like the moon for the special people in my life, quietly in the background to light up their darkest hours.

And hopefully that is enough.

How do you confront your insecurities?

    Love the outfit! And love the final quote! My personality is close to yours. I’m an ISFJ! I continually meet couples where one is an extrovert and one is an introvert and yet it always seems to work out. It’s all about finding compromise and understanding each other’s needs :)

      Hi Katrina! Lovely to meet you and great to see we have such close personalities!! :)
      Great to hear your experience with extrovert and introvert couples :) definitely something good to keep in mind if I’m ever feeling down. I’m quite lucky that he’s an amazing guy so the compromising and understanding parts are covered hehe
