Introverts Often Exceed Expectations

I have always communicated better through other ways of expression that do not include talking. I don’t like talking. I like deep conversations, and you simply can’t have deep conversations with everyone. Generally, I can’t express myself well. Words fail me, my mind fails me, specially with people I don’t know well or not at…Continue readingIntroverts Often Exceed Expectations

Excellent People Do Not Settle

I find it impossible and inconceivable how some people actually like the shitty life they lead. There’s only one thing I’m sure of: those people enjoy complaining. Especially when they realize those around them share the same frustration and discontent. “I have a shitty life, you have a shitty life, we have a shitty life,…Continue readingExcellent People Do Not Settle

Nostalgia

After becoming an adult, which happened around about four years ago when I started to get paid for my time and presence, I never again had the amount of time you can dedicate to just daydream about old times. You know, listen to the songs you used to hear in high school, reread the poems…Continue readingNostalgia

When Your Values Change

When I was younger, my dream was to become a famous singer. As a young girl, I began discovering my talents and soon became addicted to the flow — the mental state you get into when performing an activity in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment. I had this dream for about half of…Continue readingWhen Your Values Change

Long-Term Stress Really Will Kill You

The past year has been truly exhausting for me. Amongst other things, looking for a new job, updating and improving my portfolio, a full-time job working from nine to six, attending career coaching sessions, and trying to make music at the same time. Most of the time I felt overwhelmed and worn out, without any…Continue readingLong-Term Stress Really Will Kill You

How to Deal With Bad Feelings

Did you know that jealousy and envy are still the cause of most current conflicts both in the professional and personal world? I have to confess, I’m surprised. It’s 2020, and I have this idea that feeling envy or jealousy is outdated, and that nobody who’s educated feels such primal emotions anymore. Everybody looks so…Continue readingHow to Deal With Bad Feelings

5 Ways to Overcome Social Anxiety

I don’t remember myself as an extroverted kid but I do see a happy kid in old photos. A little girl who, despite feeling things deeply and noticing the slightest details, felt ok in most scenarios. But somehow, there was a moment, or a bunch of moments in my life that turned shyness and introversion…Continue reading5 Ways to Overcome Social Anxiety

Girls, You Don’t Have to Be Nice

I read the other day about the difference between being nice and being kind. Whereas kindness comes from a place of inner compassion, it can and should be taught, niceness may spring from a desire to please others, even if it’s at our own expense. I’m a naturally kind person, but I have to admit,…Continue readingGirls, You Don’t Have to Be Nice

What I’ve Learned From Minimalism

As a highly sensitive introvert, I’ve always felt like the world was too much. Noises were too much. Lights were too much. People were too much. Too loud or inquisitive, when all I wanted was to be left alone with my ideas. As a kid, I used to long for even more noise, either for…Continue readingWhat I’ve Learned From Minimalism

The Importance of Broadening Your Perspective

I consider myself a broadminded person. Although I work as a designer, I don’t limit my daily reads and scrolls to Dribbble or Behance feeds. I rarely visit widely known websites or talk about famous designers. I make it a daily habit to read about politics, society and the state of the world, spirituality, beauty,…Continue readingThe Importance of Broadening Your Perspective
