How do we know what is best or right?

Being sensitive can make choosing hard. Not only do you make subtle and extensive comparisons between options, you also factor in what other people want, recommend or prefer.

Yet choosing is necessary. When we don’t choose, we spread ourselves too thin, or end up being wishy-washily involved with things that don’t really light us up. Taking the time to decide on what you really want then, really helps to give you more focus and energy.

In the end, the best way to make truly sustainable choices is through learning how to understand our (complex) HSP intuition (which is not as clear-cut as the pop-spirituality guru’s seem to promote).

It’s important to understand that if parts of you have […]

I urge you to question the assumption that thoughts cause emotions (and that that’s all there is to it). That if you change your thinking that you’ll feel different. I know it’s the status quo wisdom out there. I also know it’s B.S. as a “final truth” philosophy. Here’s the scoop. Our thoughts may be […]
