🕚: 3 minutes Hi guys! It took me a while, but I am back to discussing the different love types that exist in our world! Read about the last 4 love types down below. Ludus - Playful love Ludus, meaning "game" in Latin, is the flirtatious and no strings attached love type. It’s part of the beginning stage of a (possible) relationship. Ludus people are often trying to enjoy themselves without specifically committing to one person. Ludus types bounce back quite easily after breakups and have...
It’s almost Valentine’s day!
For many, it's a day of romance and for others a day where they feel like they have to make a point of how stupid and pointless it is.
Valentine’s day is the day when love is being celebrated. Only, love cannot be described by just one meaning.
We can all agree that the love we feel for our partner, isn’t the same as love for our family or friends. Then why is it that we only have one word for love?
We are living in the era of being and becoming more self-aware. We spend time working on healing from our trauma, bonding with our inner child, concurring our inner critic, and much more.
But why is it that we are never really focused on our older selves?
Finally, we've entered the last month of this year. We had a long year of battling disease, each other, ourselves and high levels of anxiety.
Now that 2022 is knocking at our door, the anxiety about what that year is going to be like, can be overwhelming.
As someone who strongly dislikes New years, I've made a list that hopefully sparks hope and excitement for the new year.
I am an emotional eater. This means that what I eat and how much I eat really depends on how I'm feeling. I always kinda knew, but never really did anything about it. My excuse?

During life we quit a lot things. We walk away from jobs that no longer suit us, friends that turn out to be enemies, dead-end relationships and so on. But somehow we are conditioned to let certain toxic family members stay in our lives, while we do our best to accept them and everything that comes with them. But when is it necessary to end the relationship?
Reading time: 3 minutes 5 young women I am blessed to have 5 younger sisters. And even though I only grew up with one, I have always felt a connection with all of them. I remember being 8 years old and seeing my sister I grew up with for the first time, laying in her tiny crib. I remember being so excited for my mother to arrive at my school with my new baby sister, so I could show her to all my classmates. I was so proud to be an older sister and ever since then, I felt responsible. But there...
Reading time: 4 minutes I went through one of the hardest periods of my life while being in a brand new relationship. I was convinced we wouldn't last, yet here we are 2,5 years later. As always, I was wrong While my life was spinning out of my control I was in a new relationship. I didn't have time to be high on oxytocin -the chemical in your brain that makes you fall in love- instead I had to deal with the harsh reality that I was going down and possibly taking someone else with me. I've...
