How To Stop Emotions From Controlling Your Life

Emotions are designed by nature to be fleeting. They are meant to rise to the surface of our bodies to be felt, acknowledged, and released, once and for all. Emotion just wants to be recognized.

When Highly Sensitive Turns Highly Selfish

Though nobody is immune to struggle in this world, there are certain struggles that highly sensitive people have in common.

The Truth About Labelling Ourselves...And Why We Have It All Wrong

It feels good to know that other people are just like us. Especially when we have been going through tough times. When we discover a group of people, usually online, going through the same thing as us, we are reassured and comforted. Often these groups will have labels.

How To Eliminate Insecurity In Your LIfe

What is it about insecurity that makes us so uncomfortable? Why do most of us pretend we don’t have insecurities, or even worse, suppress them?

Why Vulnerability Will Make Us Successful

As a writer who blogs about being highly sensitive, it is very cathartic to write about emotions, feelings, thoughts, struggles, eccentricities, phobias and anxieties. It feels so good to get them out. Finishing the pieces and editing them for publication, they become ready to be released into the world.
