    The Lonely Empath

    The Lonely Empath

    Compassionate, gentle, nurturing and caring. All these words (and many more) can be used to describe the Empath. An empath is a sensitive being that feels on a very deep level. An empath can feel the vibrations and emotions of other people, places and things. They are usually people with high moral and integrity. The empath is not just a “supernatural” fictional character. Science has proven that these individuals posses a highly sensitive nervous system, making them naturally more sensitive to vibrations and emotions than others. So why are these gifted humans usually alone and rejected? Here are 3 reasons empaths may find themselves alone.

    Why Some People Want to Brainwash You

    Why Some People Want to Brainwash You

    A brainwasher has genuine ill will towards you because they want to make you believe what they believe about who you are, which I learned from If You Had Controlling Parents, How to Make Peace With Your Past And Take Your Place In The World, Dan Neuharth. Many of them mean you serious harm because they want to strip you of what makes you, you. Cults do this for power and control over people who join them. Often, cult victims are lonely people who do not have solid friendships although personally, I’d rather be lonely than in a toxic friendship like I was in three years ago. Control over someone else is a ridiculous motive because no one can have total control over someone else’s mind, body and soul. Although to me, I feel that this occurs in my family, almost as if someone controls someone else’s spirit. Brainwashing happens in cults when control of sleeping habits, and control of access to information can happen. (Neuharth p.100) It is why I didn’t know much about schizophrenia or psychic stuff growing up because my family didn’t provide me with many resources about it.

    Naked in Fall

    Naked in Fall

    If you are reading this then you know that I am a naturist. A naturist is someone who participates in naturism, which is a clothes-free lifestyle. Naturism has nothing to do with sexual prowess or voyeurism. It involves doing ordinary things in the buff.

    Being a Mixed Millennial

    Being a Mixed Millennial

    When I was younger, I went to a primary school based in the center of Cambridge. Cambridge is one of the most diverse cities, I've ever had the pleasure of knowing so well; however, where there is diversity, there isn't always acceptance.

    To start with, the Yancs festival was amazing! Lots of costumes, music, and dancing from both world wars. It was a great experience, and can’t wait to do it again next year.

    The Art of Saying Sorry

    The Art of Saying Sorry

    I’m a fairly emphatic person, heck, even when I play The Sims I don’t want to hurt them. I know there’s people that will do a lot of weird and awful things to their sims but I nurture mine to the point where it’s like they’re my children. I can’t even have them get in fights with each other or argue. But that being said, sometimes things can get misinterpreted and end up with hurt feelings.

    Trust and Truth Go Hand in Hand

    Trust and Truth Go Hand in Hand

    As children, many of us are taught the importance of honesty and trust, always. I learned from a very young age the importance of trust and how easily it can be lost. And, even as a child, it was obviously clear that once trust is lost, getting it back can be impossible. Trust and honesty are two traits that go hand in hand for me and many others. Without one, there can’t be the other, at least where I stand. As children, we grow up trusting that the adults in the family will take care of us and protect us from harm.

    Importance of Birthdays!

    Importance of Birthdays!

    It was my birthday recently and as per the usual practice, when I was asked by my parents if there was any special I would like to do, I said "I just want to relax, it's a normal day like any other to me".
