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. Since neither my wife nor I were getting any younger, we knew that if we didn’t make the change now, it would never happen. (more…)

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: If your life were to end soon, what would you regret?

The tragic events that happened on 09/11/01 caused many people to reassess their lives. Many of them made major changes in their lives by moving to a different location, changing careers, improve and appreciate their relationships, ending relationships, and have been motivated to make other improvements in their lives. It's not my intent to be morbid or make you feel worse about this horrific incident, but this might be a time to reflect on our lives. HSPs are definitely capable of deep-thought! The people who perished that day had no idea what would happen. This inspired me to write this post about regrets that these people might have had. I'm sure that we all can relate to some of these. This is a thought-provoking article…

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Where were you on 9/11/01?

Where were you on 9/11/01? I realize that some of you weren’t born or lived in another country, but I felt compelled to summarize the events that happened that day to tell you the important lessons that I learned. This is a question that many of us may be contemplating on yet another sad anniversary of that fateful day. It’s hard to believe all the years that have passed since that beautiful sunny day when the skies suddenly filled with fire and smoke, buildings collapsed, and people were running for their lives.

I was in Jersey City, New Jersey. The weather was perfect, and it seemed like it was going to be a normal and pleasant day. At 8:45 am, all of that changed. I heard on my car radio that a World Trade Center building had been struck by an airplane. (more…)

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Am I Being Too “Sensitive” About This?

I read something recently about men posing with their dogs on dating online sites. It turns out that they didn't actually own these dogs! They were trying to attract girls through the false pretense that they were dog owners. I've been out of the dating scene for over forty years. Am I being too "sensitive" to believe that this is reprehensible behavior? I definitely have a "pet peeve" about this! I realize that this is a little thing to be bothered about compared to the rest of the problems of the world, but this is troubling to me. Don't these people realize that they'll be caught in this lie? Is this a good way to start an honest relationship? I guess I'm old-fashioned about how…

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Are We Addicted To Technology?

More news has been coming out about the various effects of technology on our world. As we all know,  technology is pervasive in our lives today! For some, it’s had an amazing contribution to their lives. For others, it’s detracting from their real life interactions with others.

A recent Gallup poll shows that those who feel that technology is causing them more stress still feel they have better lives! So low stress may not be synonymous with life satisfaction for everyone. (more…)
