Powerful words

By

22 December 2018
Thoughts and prayers, xoxo, all my love; words that are so easily expressed whenever we think about a person or wish them all the best. On a postcard, in a text message or whenever Facebook reminds us of a memorable day. But are we aware of the real effect our words have on people? And does the person that receives them, truly understands what we meant to say?

'Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift'. The things I believe in and the stories that I write are all based on the meaning of these words. But can we learn in a different more easy way?

Being sensitive and feeling your emotions is powerful and positive. But for centuries we’re thinking quite the opposite. We rather hide what we're feeling. We think feeling emotions makes us weak and vulnerable and that being sensitive is something only for women. We’ve been wrong all this time. By accepting and dealing with our difficult emotions we will found a solution to our problems.

The year of the doers, the rebels, the builders

By

8 January 2018
Every new beginning, whether it’s a new job, a new year or a new relationship we talk about our resolutions. This new year, more than ever before will be a year that just talking about them won’t do anymore. And especially how we talk about things will make the difference. This is the year of the rebels, the builders and the doers. The ones that have always known that there is a different way. The ones that are not going to wait anymore but are stepping up and make it happen.

When you’re burned out or depressed you are broken on the inside. Then it hurts inside your body. It is an emotional pain and it needs the same amount of time to heal.

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.
