Welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you’re here.

    If you’re not sure whether you’re a highly sensitive person (HSP) or an introvert, visit this page for a list of key attributes that define each personality type.

    My Goals for the Blog

    • raising awareness for highly sensitive persons and introverts
    • teaching coping techniques for managing anxiety, physical energy levels, and illness
    • advocating for human rights, especially in the LGBQ+ and trans* communities
    • improving public knowledge of mental health struggles and the practical ways ALL of our lives are affected by suffering

    Healthy Skepticism

    Keep in mind I do my best to reference the sources where I find my information. However, I learned these concepts and philosophies over many years. A lot of what I say is actually my opinion. At the same time, most of the ideas (as is true with most blogs) originated elsewhere. Throughout the blog, I’ll refer to stories from a variety of ancient religions, cultural practices, my experiences, academic literature, other professional healers, and self-help resources.

    I Value Your Input

    I openly invite you to comment and express questions or concerns anytime, critical or otherwise.
