Cliff’s “Big Move” Blog Post Series

Making changes, especially major ones, can be extremely difficult for highly sensitive people. It’s tempting to stick with what’s comfortable and familiar, even when we may not be completely satisfied. Change is hard, but with desire and determination, it can be done, and I will prove it!

Starting on Monday, November 19th, I’ll publish 23 posts on consecutive Mondays about all the changes I’ve made over the past four years. On Wednesdays and possibly Fridays, I’ll write blog posts on other subjects of interest to highly sensitive people.

In a series of blog posts,  I’ll chronicle a really “Big Move” that my wife and I made to move halfway across the country to be closer to our daughter. This was a HUGE change for us, as we had lived in our home in New Jersey for over 30 years! My mother had recently passed away, and our only daughter had moved to Missouri.

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Do You Have Too Many “Should’s” In Your Life?

Do you have too many “shoulds” in your life? Do you find yourself and others saying to you….You should do this, or You should do that?

Why should you have to do anything? Shouldn’t you be free to do what you want and not be bound by what you and others think you should do?

As highly sensitive people/introverts, it seems to be a natural inclination for us to put others people’s needs ahead of our own. Why is this so? Have we conditioned ourselves to think that our needs are somehow less important? (more…)

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Are You An Energy Conservationist?

Are you an energy conservationist? By that, I mean, do you know your energy drains that deplete your energy? If not, how can you conserve your energy? Here are some examples of some of my energy drains and what you can do about them:

  • Unnecessary chit-chat— Unless there is a major event happening, we can’t be available to just chat at all hours. Set boundaries for yourself about how much chat time that you need. Socializing is extremely important, so is quiet time that we highly sensitive people/introverts need. (more…)
