Is your wife a crow, too, crow?

Mmm....

Who decides what is truth? Unless you are a believer, in which case I'd ask for sources, truth is totally subjective.

Have it your way. I believe in nothing. I know what I know. I merely speak of it.
Truth is what exists before humans mess it about for their own ends.
Truth is what remains after humans have disappeared from the scene.

Is my wife a crow? Interesting question. She is a crow's wife. Probably she is a human as humans were designed to be.
As opposed to the way humans generally are.

The mention of Phoenixes would really excite my ENTJ friend. He loves them, going so far as to use them in stories, symbols, basically anything. But his name isn't Phoenix.

The Phoenix:)
I happen to love birds. Crows included. They represent freedom, calm...

I wouldn't be one. But the wonders of the world have a lot to teach us

Wyvern. Now there's a creature of interest. Humans have forgotten the Wyvern.
Back when there were dragons, men were men...

Referring back to a previous question/answer:
I would say that my wife is a bat, albeit a slightly handicapped one.
Her life, at 72, is opening out before her, day by day, but she does have a tendency to bump into things.
A few weeks back, a huge bat circled around her for almost twenty minutes, in her bedroom, bumping into things.
Maybe it was a 72 year old bat.

Wow. Mr. Crow!
May you continue to be happy together and be a source of encouragement and comfort, always.

I didn't realize who I was talking to.

I am nonplussed. Who do you now think you're talking to?

Ah yes. That would account for what to you might seem rather odd views :)

Something has been bugging me, so I'm wondering about your insight on the matter.

I feel quite like the go to person for my buddies when they need someone to give some emotional support.

I always kind of enjoyed this role, as its what I do prety well. But I feel like people use me a little.

Its something I find so, so strange, because if I open up to a person, its likely that that person will be portant to me in other aspects of life, not just what I need help with. And I'd think that they'd feel that.

So I wonder how it works. And I resent the position slightly. I brought it up once with a certain friend who wouldn't show I existed for months but when she had a complicated relationship issue, she asked me about my life... Wanted to "catch up"... But I knew it was going somewhere... And then I kind of fell into that role again.
She denied it for the most part.

I find it disrespectful.

1) how does it happen that someone trusts somebody with their deepest selves, and disregards everything else?

2) resentment means I feel violated to a certain degree. How would you recommend fixing/leaving the problem

This sums me up exactly , I feel like INFP's are like the Blood Type O , you can give everyone blood but only receive a special kind. One day you'll meet someone who will understand you

One is probably all you'll ever meet. And only then if you're lucky.
