The Struggles Of Being A Gifted, Anxious Adult

Last week, I posted about how I realized I was gifted. Realizing isn’t the right word. I was identified as being gifted as a young kid and was so busy getting on with life that I just forgot about it. I was so focused on managing my anxiety that my intelligence was irrelevant. Learning about […]

Something to think about

We need to accept collective responsibility for the suffering and injustice we inflict on one another, and rebranding and camouflaging the effects of trauma, loss, and stress as mental disease directs attention and resources away from creating a safer, fairer, and more just society — a society in which more individuals are able to flourish […]
