Hey! Thanks for popping in. 🙂
This site is all about figuring out life, in particular for those that are introverted and highly sensitive.
I like to talk about personal growth, personalities, crafy/creative things, mindset, drawing/colouring/paper stuff & lots more.
In my journey I found that I was always searching for that ‘thing’ that would help me with my depression, anxiety and OCD, making me feel like an alien in this world.
In truth, there is a thing – and – there’s not.
Let me explain.
The thing that helps me will not necessarily help everyone else. There is something that can light your fire and bring some meaning to your life.
Through that meaning and self-awareness things aren’t as gloomy as they once seemed.
I won’t lie and say you’ll be perfect or feel better with time but it is my hope that you won’t feel so alone.
“A big part of depression is feeling really lonely, even if you’re in a room full of a million people”
The ‘thing’ we seek is also a knowing that things are as they are. That there is no real ‘grass is greener’ anywhere and in knowing that it’s almost like you found that ‘thing’ (in a backwards sort of way).
I invite you to follow along with me in figuring out this thing called life and trying to find out where we ‘fit’ in.
And remember that this is YOUR life your living – everyone will have an opinion on how you ‘should’ be living it and what you ‘need’ to be doing all in the name of being ‘realistic’ & ‘struggling like everyone else’. Strive to be the best version of you and you can’t go wrong.
In this together,
I’ve put some amazing quotes below that have really impacted my life and want to share with you! Once done check out the Start Now section – I hope you find it helpful!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God [the light]. Your playing small does not serve the World. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God [the light] that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. As we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
