RECLAIMING OUR POWER

RECLAIMING OUR POWER

As women we want to feel loved and have security, we hate to be alone and we are terrified of being single for long periods of time, I mean how can we not, we are naturally emotional creatures, we were placed on earth to love and nurture; but I’m going to fill you in on a little secret.

CO-PARENTING WITH A NARCISSIST

CO-PARENTING WITH A NARCISSIST

Co-parenting with an individual with traits or symptoms of narcissism is one of the most difficult, draining situation I have ever had to endure. Being around these characteristics triggered by worst flaws. My temper erupted; my past trust issues began to seep into my present. My own anxiety began to heighten, and I started to become emotionally and mentally unrecognizable.

TRIBUTE

TRIBUTE

We have to end this IMMEDIATELY! We have to raise our children with LOVE! It supersedes all. We have to raise our children on logic, knowledge, self-love, and temperament. We have to start respecting ourselves FIRST and our community SECOND. We have to stop thinking WE ARE OWED RESPECT when we are not respecting ourselves!

EXPECTATIONS KILLS HAPPINESS

EXPECTATIONS KILLS HAPPINESS

The power of expectations create’s suffering rather than focusing on ourselves we look at the actions of others and this can create emotional turmoil. When you place expectations into the hands of others, you are ultimately giving them the power to control your happiness, as soon as this individual does not do what you expect them to do, your mood shifts and now anger and sadness arises.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY

I know each one of us experience pain or stress in our lives. Some of us struggle with our own thoughts. We ask ourselves where our life is leading us, are we doing the right thing? Are you making the right choices? Where will you be in the next few years? We put a lot on our plate; we worry ourselves, and I know life can get a bit hectic and overwhelming, but I’m here to tell you everything will be okay.

PANIC ATTACKS

PANIC ATTACKS

We all have experienced fear whether it’s from public speaking or taking on something new and unfamiliar. I never experienced a panic attack so I will base this post on my clinical perspective. About a third of people have one panic attack in their lifetime, they happen in 1 out 0f 10 adults in the U.S. A Panic attack happens at random, with extreme intensity and lasts about 5 to 10 minutes

SOCIAL MEDIA

SOCIAL MEDIA

Let’s face it social media has been a huge turning point for the 21st century.

With a platform filled with perfect bodies, gym enthusiast, vegan eaters, and travel bloggers; I must admit it's hard to not feel you’re not living to your full potential, including myself! We all have our insecurities some of us can admit to it or just keep it to ourselves.

DEEP

DEEP

Part of me creating this blog was driven by my experiences both positives and negatives. Whether it relates to relationships, family systems, stigmatism, trauma. I can go on & on. I’ve had my fair share of growing up in a vicious cycle of cynicism. It took so many years for me to become empathetic. I didn’t always care about other’s feelings; I didn’t always try my best to be truthful because I wasn’t always comfortable in my skin. I treated those around me with the same pain that was inflicted on me because I thought it was just to do that.

CASUAL SEX

CASUAL SEX

To some, casual sex can be morally wrong; while with others, they can consider it normal and harmless. Health professionals have expressed concerns that casual sex can lead to depression, anxiety and/or low self-esteem. Studies show it is not the act of sex that leads to these emotions, but the motivation behind it.

EDUCATION

EDUCATION

Studies have shown that high levels of education contribute to lower levels of mental stress later on in life [2]. Education contributes to human capital which includes cognitive development, character development, knowledge, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Adults with higher levels of education are less likely to engage in risky behaviors, such as smoking and drinking and have healthy behaviors relating to diet and exercise

TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS

TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS

Believe it or not, the relationships you’ve watched or built throughout your childhood impacts your adulthood and your decision-making skills. The definition of toxic comes from a negative cognition and seen as poisonous or unhealthy. What if I flipped that & told you it should be seen from a level of empathy? Changes the perspective, right?

PARENTING STYLE

PARENTING STYLE

Family is such an important and huge influence in any individual’s life. Family history plays a tremendous role in development as a child leading into adulthood. Your parents parenting style, norms, generational cycles, coping skills, & family roles are learned through childhood and at times mimicked through adult hood. For the purpose of this post because it would be extremely extensive to discuss all topics, I would like to focus particularly on parenting style.
