Do you have a friend like this? A socionics understanding of this? What type would you consider?
Being stressed at not being able to give her BEST to work, school, family, friends…because her time is divided into all those interests. She does not have enough time to be as effective as she wishes to be and it upsets her. She wants to be there for all those who need her. If one of her friends/family members is in trouble she assumes a certain amount of responsibility. If only she had more time to give what is needed to the situation. She is really struggling with this and feels torn. She has dreams revolving around this issue: She’ll have an old friend ask her to play basketball, but her shoes are not the right shoes and she’s uncomfortable and she hears her daughter crying in the background and she has to begrudgingly refuse the offer. She analyses these dreams and it further feeds her fears of not being able to perform her best. She talks about sacrifices and how they are a painful part of life.
All I could think of telling her is not to take on so many things. But it seemed insensitive. Seeing as how she does watch herself and is always trying to discipline herself when it comes to time management. If it was up to her, she’d pack on a ton of things to do and people to see. Her husband is very opinionated about this quark of hers. He tends to first offer solutions that allow her to have everything she needs and when that is not possible, he tells her which “appointments” are not worth the time and effort. Without him, she’d be even more loose with her interests and then miserably second guessing them.
(I <3 her <3).
