The gift and power of emotional courage

By

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.

Hate, racism and protest aren't new. We ourselves are keeping this process alive. It is time we learn to handle our anger in a more healthy way and break the cycle of hate.

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?

'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.

When you’re allowed to learn from mistakes

By
on
3 September 2016
When we look at our society there are huge differences in how we handle glitches and someone making a mistake. When making a mistake ourselves and, when seeing someone else stumble and fall. How you cope with a mistake has a lot to do with how you feel at such a moment and, how you handle these feelings. These feelings are often related to how you felt as a child in similar situations. What if we, as caregivers and mentors, change our behavior towards children. What if we make room for and allow them to feel emotions. What would happen then, if these children become adults and have to make important decisions and make a mistake?

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.
