We are living in a fast paced and hectic world. Every day there seems to be an event we need to attend, a situation we need to voice our opinion about and we’re expected to participate in eve-ry-thing. Sigh…exhausting isn’t it? Some of us do not want to participate, at all. And it is not because we are shy or antisocial. It is because we are an introvert. This ‘Illustrated Guide to the Introverted Life’ provides great advice how to tap into the strengths of your trait.

Without realizing our senses consume a lot of things that can trigger an emotional response in our body. Are you aware what the effects are on our body? Do you know that you can choose to have a balance of anger, drama, suspense, humor and love in your life? Are you aware that a mix of these feelings is important to us?

Sensitive and in love

By
on
2 March 2017
Love is always the answer, no matter what the question is. A beautiful statement that in most cases definitely is true. Being compassionate comes natural for highly sensitive persons, and many of them will respond with love in various situations. It is a beautiful side of our trait of being sensitive, but one that especially for HSP’s can become a pitfall, particularly when it comes to relationships.

Signs of a love deficiency

By

19 December 2016
You and I, we are living creatures. We have a heart that beats, blood that flows through our veins and brains that work. We have eyes and ears that observe and take in lots of things, feelings within that respond and all this held together by our skin. We have this well-oiled system that works together. That can keep working together because we nourish it with what it needs. We give it oxygen, food and water. It’s all that we basically need to survive, right?

'What does it mean to be human?' Actor Edgar Ramirez explains in his speech for the 'HeforShe-turns-two' event the importance of feelings by asking this significant question. After all we, as human's, all have feelings. So "how does a being who feels so deeply, as we all do as humans, thrive in a culture that discourages feelings?"

How to learn from mistakes as an adult

By
on
20 September 2016
Learning how to deal with feelings and emotions is an important part of a child’s upbringing. Were you not or insufficiently guided by your parents or caregivers in learning this skill? As an adult you can still learn this. If you want to do things in a different way, the opportunity and the responsibility lies with you. In your life now as an adult, you are capable of creating a safe environment for yourself and do things differently. You can. You may.

Sensitief zijn en je emoties voelen is sterk en positief. Maar in onze samenleving vinden wij vaak het tegenovergestelde. Al lange tijd slaan we de plank volledig mis. We komen er steeds meer achter dat niet voelen en niet over je gevoelens praten juist voor problemen als stress, depressies en ongezonde keuzes zorgt. En dat sensitief zijn een sterke eigenschap is waar we veel meer mee kunnen. Door mijn verhalen te delen wil ik je laten zien dat sensitief zijn en je lastige emoties aangaan zoveel sterker is dan niet voelen en dat we als sensitief mens (wat we allemaal zijn) gewoon mogen Zijn.

About me
Being sensitive and feeling your emotions is powerful and positive. But for centuries we’re thinking quite the opposite. We’ve been wrong all this time. We are starting to understand that not feeling and avoiding to talk about our feelings is what is causing our problems (stress, depression, unhealthy choices). We now also know that being sensitive is more than emotions and that it’s a quality that can help us in many more ways. By sharing my own stories I’d love to show you that being sensitive and feeling your difficult emotions is much stronger than not feeling at all and that as a sensitive being (which we all are) we can just Be.
