I Am An Emotional Eater
Alive · October 23, 2021
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? "Don't we all need to eat? "

The Inner Child
Spirit · October 16, 2021
A series of events that happened that week, triggered all the pain I had inside, to rush back up again. Normally I could control it with knowledge and logic, but this time I was completely overwhelmed, lost my inner control, and let the child in me rage. To shield the people I love from the verbal assault she was spewing inside, I blocked myself off completely and went into a silent state.

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...

I remember being extremely anxious at the beginning of this year. Even though I was never really a fan of celebrating a new year I knew nothing about, this one just felt different. It's 8 months later and we are currently living in one hell of a year. Most of us have been ripped from our normal lives and are faced with unnatural living conditions. We now know from personal experience that freedom is something that can be taken away in a snap. The illusion of being secure doesn't exist in 2020...

I did this to myself One of the hardest things of my burn out was accepting that I was burned out and that my own actions throughout the years led me to this point. I always went to school or work during periods of depression. I would only allow myself to be emotional at home. After a crying session I would pick myself up, put on my mask and keep going. I did this for years. In 2018 my body was finally done with the way I treated myself. I kept ignoring all the physical and mental signs. So my...

I often feel like I am not being heard by the people I actually want to hear me. Sometimes I get shut down before finishing my sentence or someone just blurres out "well, that's not true," while I'm still speaking. Well how would you know, if you won't even let me talk? I think to myself. I'm not confrontational at all so I often let it slide, until I realized that this was actually very toxic to me. I will let it slide when I don't know or care for the person, but when someone you actually...
