10 life lessons learned in 2017

I edited this picture to wish you all a happy new year! โค

So here are my 10 life lessons that I learned in 2017

1. Ask for help when you need it

This was such an important lesson which I have learned in 2017. I asked for help again when I was struggling a lot with my anxiety in the beginning of 2017. I take 20 mg of antidepressants since february. I’m so happy I got support and the doctor in Spain subscriped me the meds I needed. Since I have been taking antidepressants I feel more happier and less anxious. I still can feel sometimes much anxiety but I’m learning how to live with it. I’m making progress. I’m a warrior. I’m stronger and wiser than before. You should never feel ashamed of asking for help.

I also asked for help during my internship abroad. I was doing my internship abroad at the university of Valladolid. It was my first time working. I never did that before and was afraid. I asked for help when I needed to complete some tasks. They were also so friendly and helpful. I’m really blessed for that. I always thought that asking for help makes you weak but instead it makes you strong. We all need some help in life and you shouldn’t feel ashamed for that. We all need a little help from our friends and family in life โค

2. Writing heals wounds

I started this blog in August. I never thought I would gain more than 100 followers and have such a great interaction with you all. I love you all so much. I love writing and itโ€™s always have been one of my biggest passions in life. I love to write poetry too. Iโ€™m so glad I started this blog. It feels really great to write all my thoughts and feelings down. Sometimes I wrote about some bad experiences I had in life such as being bullied of having my heart broken. Writing is a form of healing. Writing can make you forget the stuff you experienced. When you write about such a bad experience, you are less attached to it and can easily let it all go. Whenever I write aboout something which hurts me, I feel so relieved after I have written that piece. My mind feels lighter again and free off all the thoughts and emotions I had. Writing is such a good way of self love. I also love to journal and wish to continue journalling in 2018.

3. Working life can be full of fun and happiness

I had to do an internship to finish my studies and get my degree of European Studies this year. I did my internship abroad in the international relations office of the University of Valladolid. I worked 5 months, from february till end of june. I must admit that I was so scared of the working life. I was also scared if I would cope with my anxiety. I did such a great job, worked hard and everybody was happy with me. I suffered some anxiety attacks during work and didnโ€™t tell anybody. After a while I told them and they said I had to tell it earlier. They were are so lovely and helpful. I worked from 9 till 3 oโ€™clock in the afternoon. I was in the office of incoming international students. I made a lot of friends. I was helping them with their papers and admissions. I had such a great ambience at work. We laughed a lot and had so much fun. It was defintely one of the best experiences in my life. I felt so happy. I wish to find a career where Iโ€™m happy and where work is fun. Itโ€™s just so important to have a job where you are happy and arenโ€™t feeling stressed out all the time. I must admit that I was tired a lot because I wasnโ€™t used to the routine. I did it and Iโ€™m so proud of my achievement!

4. Having a routine in life is really important for your well-being

I must admit that when I had a routine in my life due to my internship, I felt happier and less anxious. Every day I had to work from 9 oโ€™clock in the morning till 3 oโ€™clock in the afternoon. I went to bed every day at 11 oโ€™clock. Sometimes I went to bed even earlier on days where I felt really tired. I woke up every day at 8 oโ€™clock. It definitely made me feel so good. I must admit that right now I donโ€™t have that routine anymore. My sleep routine was really bad these months but this month I changed it again. Now, itโ€™s better than before. Slowly making progress again. Having a routine in life is just really important for our health, especially our mental health. It isnโ€™t good to stay awake till 5 oโ€™clock at night and wake up late. I felt more stressed because of that routine and less happier. I hope I can change my sleep routine again.

5. Travelling makes you feel more open-minded and connected with the world

I travelled a lot this year through Spain during my internship time abroad and afterwards. I went to Burgos (One hour from Valladolid), Salamanca (Famous of itโ€™s beautiful university), twice to Santander (Beach time!) and to Granada which is in the south of Spain in Andalucia. Some trips I went with my mother and other ones with friends. I love travelling so much. It makes me feel more happier in life because of making new friends all over the world. I made so many friends while doing my internship abroad in Valladolid. I made friends from United Kingdom, Germany, China, Italy, Mexico, Colombia and many other places in the world. Travelling makes you more open-minded. You are open to new cultures. I love to learn more about the differences of the cultures and their languages. It makes life definitely more interesting. I love adventure! It also makes me feel more connected with the world. We are all the same despite our different religions or nationaliaties. We are human. We are all one with the world โค I canโ€™t wait to travel more in 2018 through Spain and travel around the world. Every experience makes you richer.

6. Real friends are forever no matter the distance

I have friends all over the world. I grew up in two amazing countries: Spain and The Netherlands. I was living abroad in Valladolid for my internship and right now I hope to find a job in Spain. I went back for Christmas to Netherlands and saw my good friends again. I love the fact that even though you donโ€™t see each other for many months, nothing changed when you see each other again. Thatโ€™s for me real friendship. Real friends are the ones who will always be there for you no matter the distance. Real friendships are in your heart forever โค I love all my friends so much and Iโ€™m forever blessed with the beautiful friendships I have. I donโ€™t need to have a million of fake friends, just a few good friends. Friends always make your life better and brighter.

7. Music is life

Since October Iโ€™m following the programme on Spanish television of Operacion Triunfo. Itโ€™s a Spanish singing contest. Every week a participant has to go home. There were 16 participants. Right now, there are only 9 left in the contest. I love singing so much. I used to sing in a choir for 11 years and travelled a lot through Europe with my choir. Music is so good for you and you health. It makes you feel more connected and happier. Music always have the right words when you canโ€™t explain a situation in only spoken words. Music has the answers of everything. I love Operacion Triunfo so much. I also watch the 24/7 streaming on Youtube which they have.

My favourite participant is Amaia together with Aitana and Alfred. I just bought tickets to see them all live in a concert in Madrid in March 2018!!!! Iโ€™m so looking forward to it. I never went to a concert before in Madrid. Iโ€™m going with my lovely Spanish friend Maria. The winner will be chosen at the end of January during the last live show. There is also coming a special love show in January to choose the representant for Spain in Eurovision 2018. Thatโ€™s so excited news. I hope Amaia together with Alfred is going to Eurovision. They performed City of Stars during one liveshow and this moment made history in the Spanish television. You could see so much connection and love between these two young people. They are now together in a relationship which is so cute omggg โค

8. Itโ€™s okay to fail, at least you did your best and tried

After doing my internship abroad, I still had to do an exam which I didnโ€™t do before to complete my studies. This exam was about law and was really complicated. I went to Holland in June and failed for only 0.5. I felt so bad and cried a lot about it. Now, I know that it doesnโ€™t matter if you fail an exam because at least you tried. I went to Holland in August to take this exam again. I got as mark an 8 and I was so happy about it! I learned that failing is okay and doesnโ€™t make you instantly a failure. Making mistakes is okay because you can all learn from it.

9. Donโ€™t give up, because everything will be allright at the end

I struggled a lot this year with my studies. I was so worried and anxious all the time about the fact if I would ever be able to complete my studies and get my degree. I felt a lot of pressure and stress. I had to do some extra subjects because I didnโ€™t obtain all the credits during my exchange semester a few years ago in Spain. I went on exchange to Logroรฑo which is a place in La Rioja famous of itโ€™s delicious wine. I partied and drank a lot during that semester. I was a completly mess. I really regret it now but at least I learned from it and it wonโ€™t happen again. I did the extra subjects and got some great marks.

This year, I learned to never give up. You will fall but every time you can stand up again. You will get what you want at the end. At the end, worrying only makes you feel frustrated and anxious. Everything will be allright at the end because I got my degree this year. That was one of my biggest dreams and wishes for this year. I completed this wish because of my hard work and because of never giving up. I trusted myself that I was able to do it because Iโ€™m smart enough. I learned to not give in to my insecurities. They are telling me that I canโ€™t do it when it isnโ€™t true.

10. Self love is the most important love in life

I always thought having a soulmate would make me happy and is the most important thing in life. I was wrong. I had a relationship from 17 years old till 19 years old. I suffered a lot with the break up. Afterwards, I was seeking the love of other boys to make my heart heal the wounds. It wasnโ€™t the good way. I donโ€™t kiss anymore boys without having feelings for them. It doesnโ€™t make me feel good about myself. I learned that loving yourself is the most important thing you can do in life. Everything starts with yourself. Everything starts with the relationship you have with yourself. If you arenโ€™t happy with yourself, you donโ€™t do things which will make you happy. The thoughts you have about yourself are so important. Letโ€™s change our negative thoughts this new year and replace them with good thoughts. You are enough, you are loved and you are so worth it. I hope you can all practice self love in this new year and take care of yourself! โค

I hope you all liked my list of important life lessons which I have learned during 2017. I think my next blog post will about dreams and wishes I would like to complete in the new year. I wish you all a beautiful new year with self love, happiness and good health :)<3 Letโ€™s rock this new year!

I love you all so much โค

Much love xoxo Christina

I wish the political crisis in Spain is over soon… my heart hurts ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜ข

Hey lovely bloggers ๐Ÿ’•,

Catalonia is a region of Spain and wants to be indepented. Last Sunday there was a illegal referendum in Catalonia. The governement of Catalonia will declare that Catalonia will be indepented from Spain on monday. Most Spanish people are against it. Even people living in Catalonia are against it. There is a minority. I really hope this situation will be solved by the Spanish governement soon.

Hopefully, the leaders of Catalonia will be in jail soon. They are responsible for dividing the Spanish people and creating hate in our society. I’m so done with it. I just feel the need to write because my heart hurts ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”. 

Spain is its culture. Spain are the beautiful cities. Spain are the churches. Spain is its beautiful nature. Spain are the regions. Spain are the painters, writers and the singers. Spain are the citizens. Spain are the villages. Spain are the tapas and the fiesta. Spain is the goodness of the people. Spain is the king, police and military.

Spain is everything to me… ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’• 

What is happening right now in Spain is breaking my heart. The independism of Catalonia is not going to be good for anybody. My heart is breaking when I see the hate which is creating to anyone who wear a Spanish flag. They call these people fascists. They don’t understand what the difference is between patriotism and nacionalism. To be a patriotist is being proud, being a nacionalist is thinking that your village is better than the other one. There’s a great difference between being proud & thinking you are better than others. 

I’m really proud to be half Spanish and half Dutch. I’ve grown up in two amazing and beautiful countries. In two democratic countries. I also feel a global citizen. We all belong to this world. It’s much better to be all united to beat wars and terrorism.

The hate between people only cause wars. Violence and hate is not the answer. I believe in a united Spain. A Spain which is based on democracy. I believe that the Spanish government is going to solve this problem soon. At the end, we all want the same that’s living in freedom and peace. 

I love Spain and want a united Spain! ๐Ÿ’•

Much love,

xoxo

I just want a united Spain ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’•

Hey lovely bloggers ๐Ÿ’•,

I just want to write something which is happening now in Spain. To make sure, I don’t want to talk that much of politics on my blog. I don’t want to spread hate. Today, I just feel the need to write because I’m feeling bad these days. This subject is just touching me really hard.

Spain is a constitutional monarchy. Spain has many autonomous regions such as Basque Country and Catolonia. They have their own language and government. Catolonia wants to be indepented from Spain. Today on the first of October they wanted to do a referendum but this was against the law. However, they did it but it was a illegal referendum. The police men were acting just the way they have to act.

So, today I woke up crying and so fucking anxious. I felt that my heart was beating so fast…. What’s happening is Spain today is fucked up ๐Ÿ˜ข I’m really scared. This isn’t good for my anxiety…. Hopefully I will feel okay soon. So many people and police men were injuried. I just hope thay both parties are going to talk and that there comes a solution.

So, as you know I’m half Spanish, half Dutch. I grew up in this two countries. To be honest, I have always felt more Spanish than Dutch. I was born in The Netherlands. When there were football matches for world cup or europe cup I remember that people were angry and bullying me for not supporting the dutch team. I felt scared and discriminated. Since then I never posted on social media that I am for the spanish team. Now, I don’t fucking care anymore.

I feel more spanish than dutch, because that’s just the way I feel. Nobody can judge me on that. All the time I had to go back to the Netherlands from holidays in Spain I cried so much. I always wanted lo live in Spain. Some people say to me well there’s a economic crisis blablabla you can’t find work. You know what I say to them now?

I’m 24 years old, I’m not a fucking baby anymore. One of my dreams is to work in Spain and live here. I already lived in Spain for a half year during my exhange and this last half year for my internship. I’m deeply in love with Spain. I’m going to find work in Spain and nobody is going against my dream ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’ซโœŒ Even though I feel more spanish than dutch, I also feel that I’m a global citizen. 

I don’t know if I should stop watching the depressive news today. It ain’t no good for my mental health. I feel so sensitive today. I always am so sensitive. Maybe I care too much about politics?! I used to not care at all. Since I have spoken at the UN I feel the need to express myself. I used to be afraid of saying my opinion. Now, I don’t. We can’t be silence when something happens in your country. We have to speak up and demonstrate and fight for our human rights.

This subject thouched me hard because I know the history of Spain with the dictator Franco. We don’t wanna go back, do we?! In these hard times countries have to be united in order to beat terrorism and war. We all have the right to feel safe without discrimination.

I just really hope everything will be okay again in Spain. Both political parties need to talk. I really hope they come to a solution. They aren’t acting like adults now. They have to come to a solution to have Spain united. Democracy and no discrimination!

Spain developed in 40 years so much and I’m thankful for all of that. I love Spain and I hope that it will stay one country ๐Ÿ’œ

Freedom, equality and brotherhood โœŒ

Much love,

xoxo

The most beautiful people in life are the ones who have been through the worst ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ญ

Hey lovelies ๐Ÿ’•,

I love this quote so much ๐Ÿ’• This is definitely one of my favourite quotes ๐Ÿ’ซ  I want to share some thoughts and feelings I have about this beautiful quote. Yoga girl (International yoga teacher based in Aruba, will share a blog post about her soon) just shared a post on Instagram about hard times in life where you feel like giving up and griefing in life. I can relate to this so well.

I have met many people in life. I came to the conclusion that the most beautiful people are the ones who have been through the worst. Those people know what loss, hard times, trauma, mental health issues, heartbreaks are or whatever they are going through. 

It’s the people who have suffer the most who come back stronger than ever before. I learned a lot when my father almost died when I was 11 years old. He had acute pancreatis and was sick for five years. He had to go through 6 surgeries. I can’t remember much of it. The things I remember were the fact that I was just hiding my feelings. I almost never cried. I was angry but on the outside I was smiling. It’s in my late teens and twenties that I’m crying when I think back of how much it hurt me.

I guess that’s why I’m always so afraid to loose people. Whenever my brother calls me I’m afraid something is wrong with my daddy because it happened a few times. I need to let go of this fear. It’s just that feeling of loosing someone that scares me so much. I just have to feel my feelings and let them go. All will be okay.

It’s those people who have been trough the worst that have a sense of sensitivity, appreciation and understanding in life. They have been through the worst but connect with life in a way other people can’t. They know what it’s to loose people, to want to give up on life, feeling sad but still move forward every day and always treat people with kindness ans respect. 

I love those people and I will never let them go ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ซ Thank you for being in my life ๐Ÿ˜˜

Much love,

xoxo

Do you think it’s possible that some people are born to give more love than they will ever get back in return? ๐Ÿ’•

Hey lovely bloggers ๐Ÿ’•,

This blog post is coming right from my heart. Something that I can relate to in all the ways. I’m a highly sensitive person. Highly sensitive persons have nervous systems that are more sensitive than others and they process things more deeply. In other words, they feel more and love more. In another blog post I will explain more about being a highly sensitive person.

I have always been a giver. I give, give and give. I have always been the one that pleased people. I have always been the one that loves more and deeply. I have always wanted to make sure everybody was happy. I never thought of myself. It was always them, never about me.

This can be a good thing but when you give too much and receive too little it can be a real problem in your life. If you only give and you aren’t receiving as much back you can really feel out of energy and tired.

I stayed friends with people who made abuse of this situation. I found it hard to let friends go because you have a history with them. Now if I look back, I think by myself were that really my friends? Friends wouldn’t gossip about you, say rude comments and bully you.

I had a two year long distance relationship from 17 till 19 years old. He was from Switzerland and I was living in The Netherlands by that time. We were both young and crazy in love. Even in that relationship I felt like I loved him more than he loved me. I always felt like he had to say to me a million times “I love you” to make sure that he loved me. It’s my anxiety that made me feel like I was just never good enough. I was afraid to loose him. I have been bullied during my high school a lot and I think that was also the reason why I needed a constant afirmation that he loved me and that I was good enough for him. He broke up with me after two years. Life separated our ways. It wasn’t meant to be. I was lost for almost 4 years. I missed him like crazy, my first love…. It’s now when I feel more like myself again.

I love this beautiful quote from R.M. Drake. This is a beautiful writer on Instagram and has also written some amazing books. Go check him out! ๐Ÿ’• Why do I love people so much and

give them the best of me when I know they don’t derseve it at all? Why do I do this all the time? Really WHY? I think it’s because I always want everybody to be happy. I always think the best of people and care way too much. I always believe in the good of people. It’s just the way I’m.

 

Until today I still keep thinking of this beautiful quote which I found on Tumblr:

If I may answer this question, I would say definitely YESSSS! I am a highly sensitive person and that’s also the reason why I love and feel more. I really believe that there are people out in the world who give more love than they will ever receive back.

I used to believe it’s a curse to feel so much and love so hard but I began to realize it’s a blessing. I realized that it’s okay to love hard and feel everything so deeply. It’s a strength. We need more healers, dreamers and people who care about people in this sometimes dark world.

In order to be more in sync with my feelings I have to do these things:

  • I have to set boundaries with people
  • I have to let the past go (I’m doing much better than before)
  • I have to be surrounded only by people who really care about me such as my real friends and family
  • I have to say more NO
  • I have to love myself first before I fall in love again
  • I should stop pleasing people
  • I should make myself a priority before anybody else

I am in the process of all of these points. I am loving myself much more than when my first love broke up with me. I broke some friendships because those weren’t my friends. I say more no to things. However, I still have to do it all even more.

I am happy to love so much because that makes me feel alive. This is the way I’m and I’m not going to change that. I just have to make sure which people are the right people to love. We need people who love hard in this world.

A world without people that love so much as I do is a dark world without flowers… 

Much love,

xoxo

We have to feel the pain in order to move on in lifeย 

Hey lovelies ๐Ÿ’•,

โ€‹I once made this quote and wrote it in my journal ๐Ÿ’ญโœ’. I mean it’s just so true. 

We can feel an intense pain during hard times such as a when we get our heart broken or suffer from a loss of a loved one. We feel as if we can’t survive so much pain. Sometimes we try do ignore this pain because we think that if we have to feel this pain it will be just too much to handle. There will be too much tears. So, we try to escape. We try to escape in alcohol, bad relationships, social media, just anything to not feel this pain. We try to be numb instead of feeling our emotions.

This isn’t the way to heal yourself. You have to feel the pain in order to heal yourself from the unbelievable pain you are escaping from. It sounds strange but it really is the only way to feel better. If you are angry, be angry. If you feel the need to cry, cry as much as you want. If you feel alone, talk with a loved one about your feelings.

Within time, this pain will slowly fade away. Trust me, you will be okay again. It just take time. I experienced a really awful heartbreak. The person who loved me for two years left me heartbroken. I couldn’t think that the person who said he would never leave me wouldn’t keep his promise. I tried to escape in dating other boys, getting used, having more anxiety, feeling even worse about myself and drinking the pain away. This never worked out well for me… ๐Ÿ’” I wish I knew it before I did all of this. 

However, I learned from it. I stopped escaping from the pain and I let myself cry whenever I want to escape from the pain. I tried to do things which made me happy like reading, writing, blogging and travelling. I also talked with good friends and family about my feelings. All this made me feel so much happier than before ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ™

So, please don’t escape from your pain. Feel the pain in order to move in life. The pain will not last forever. You will be okay my lovelies ๐Ÿ’•

Much love,

xoxo

I will never hurt people the way they hurt me

Hey lovely bloggers ๐Ÿ’•,

I saw this beautiful quote/thought on Instagram and just have to share a little story why I can relate to it so much ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ญ 

During my childhood people have bullied me a lot. Even people who I considered my friend have hurt me a lot. I never had a fight with anybody in my life but words hurt too. Words can chase you your whole life. If you had someone in your life that tells you every day that you are ugly and not worth it, sooner or later you gonna believe in it and feel horrible. 

I’m glad I don’t have to go back to highschool anymore because it was the worst time of my life. I had so many people saying mean stuff to me and hurting me that at one point I just didn’t like to go school anymore. This also increased my anxiety and the feeling of just never feeling good enough. That feeling of being worthless no matter what you do. That’s just the worst.

I won’t say about myself that I am always kind and good to people. There are times where I also did bad things to friends and they did to me. We all make mistakes. We are human. We learn from it and grow. 

However, I never hurt people so hard as they hurt me. I would never call somebody ugly or say that they are worthless. I would never make fun of somebody who is sick. I will treat everybody with respect, kindness and love ๐Ÿ’•

I’m a highly sensitive person and get easily upset when somebody hurt me. It’s just as this quote says I would never hurt somebody the way they hurt me. I believe in the good people in the world. If anybody is experiencing that someone is hurting them in their life, I would encourage you to leave this person. A friend would never hurt you. Make real friends who lift you up and who will always be there for you ๐Ÿ’• I’m so glad I did and met the most wonderful people in my life. I love you all! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘

Much love,

xoxo

Real friends are the ones who prove it to you ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘

Hey lovely bloggers ๐Ÿ’•,

This is just so true ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘Œ Love this quote ๐Ÿ’ญ I will share some thoughts I have of friendships.

Some people only are around to have a good time with you. When you feel bad they aren’t around. Can you consider that a friend? Hell no. 

Real friends are the ones who lift you up, who are there in good and bad times. Real friends will always support you. Real friends will help you to make your dreams in life come true ๐Ÿ’ซ

A friend can say I’m here for you and when you are feeling bad not helping you or not showing around. That’s not what a real friend will do. Words are nothing without action.

I’m just so happy I walked away from some toxic friendships. People who said they are your friends and then talk about your back are not your friends. A friend will never say mean things about you. So my advice is to stay away from toxic friendships/relationships. They aren’t good for you and your mental health.

I’m just so happy with the real friends in my life ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘Œ Especially with having anxiety I find sooo much support by being surrounded by real friends who care about me and my mental health. It’s better to have a few real friends than a million of fake friends.

Much love,

xoxo

We’ll always remember 9/11 ๐Ÿ™

Hey lovelies ๐Ÿ’•,

Today is an important day to remember all the victims of the 9/11 attack in New York City. Let’s never forget this awful day.

Two years ago I went to NYC and went to this place. It is a beautiful place to think about what happened and reflect and hope that something like this will never ever happen again in this world we live in.

After I did my speech in the United Nations I felt really that I’m responsible for our planet. We all contribute to our planet. We can change this world. We want a peaceful world and we can change the world if we think about little things. I hope we all gonna make it and strive to a better world, because everybody deserve it.

I know there is a lot of bad news going around nowadays but I still believe the world is not so bad as we think. The world is good if only you change the view you look to it โœŒ Little actions make people happy and happiness is contagious so go out and spread some love ๐Ÿ’•

Love is the strongest emotions of a human being and with love so many things can be solved. Hug a stranger, help somebody in need, smile at a stranger, say I love you to the people you love, because everything can be gone just in one day. Don’t leave important things unsaid and help each other.

Rest in peace for all victims and beloved families and friends who are still suffering from a loss. God bless you ๐Ÿ™ You will never be forgotten.

Much love,

xoxo

To be vulnerable will set you free in life ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ซ

Hey lovelies ๐Ÿ’•,

I will share with you a little story about this inspiring quote. I hope you will like it ๐Ÿ˜˜

It’s hard to be vulnerable in a fake world, isn’t it? We all share our best pictures on social media to make us look like we live the perfect life, to make us look like we have no problems in life and to just create the feeling that we are always happy when we in fact aren’t.

None of this is true. We don’t have a perfect life. There will be always hard times and obstacles in life we have to face. Everybody experience bad emotions and problems; from a loss of a loved one, ending relationships, to mental health issues or money/job related problems. We all have them but we just are afraid to share all those things.

Since I shared my feelings, my experiences in life and that I suffer from anxiety in life I feel not fake anymore. I think that in hard times you can connect with people and build a community.

Like now, there are so many nature disasters happening around the world. It is in those hard times that we find the right people to connect with and to build bridges with. I pray for all those people in need ๐Ÿ™ .

You don’t have to face a problem on your own. Share it with a friend, a familiar, a doctor, just anybody who make you feel safe. Being vulnerable can be terrifying. It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable. Trust me, I have been there. However, I have learned that being a highly sensitive person is a blessing. Being vulnerable and pouring your heart out can set you free ๐Ÿ’ซ .

We need more people on this earth who are willing to be vulnerable and share their feelings and thoughts. We can help those people in need and connect with them. In this way, we can make this world a better place; a place where honesty and authenticity exists, a place where fake no longer exists ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’•

Much love,

xoxo
