Posted by:

Do you identify with this dark side of being an empath? This article has appeared on a few websites recently, defining a range of ways empathic people experience suffering – neglecting mind and body because a gift has become a stressful burden; feeling overwhelmed by a war of conflicting and self-destructive inner voices; confusion and sadness about the very existence of hurtful negative energy; exhaustion and fatigue; feeling unable to fall in love entirely; needing to go soul ...

Tenacious < Elevenacious

Posted by:

Being tenacious is a good thing. It is certainly a valuable trait for achieving your goals. Synonyms include: persistent, determined, dogged and persevering.

Post Traumatic Growth

Posted by:

You’ve probably heard the saying “Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” (a paraphrase of Nietzsche). That came to mind last week reading “How To Find Meaning In Suffering,” an article in Scientific American.
