No, you're not crazy and there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with you! Relationships require work but maybe you’re working harder than ever and still coming up short. Still left feeling overwhelmed with emotion or anxious, angry, and confused. I get it, it's challenging, but it doesn't have to be a constant balancing act in which you’re trying to effectively manage your career, social life, family, or dating, constantly shifting yet never feeling steady. Maybe you’ve had some life transitions –a new job, recent relocation, the loss of a loved one. Change shouldn't have to feel like you'll break down at any moment.

What do women want? Do you realize that a woman's feminine identity is built on three generations of women in the family? Your identification with your mother, her identification with her mother, all get passed on from one woman to the next. Throughout the span of a women's life, a constant redefinition evolves. This depends on the totality of experiences in life, in love, in maternity, and at work. Your understanding of what you internalized from your mother's feminity is key to your sense of identity. For a man, your sexual identity rest on the mother's father, and your own father for identification. Complicated.

I work with children who experience anxiety, sensory overwhelm, trouble getting to sleep after an exciting day, difficulty with changes in routine, are deeply attuned to others’ distress, and feel things very deeply. Highly sensitive children often are very attuned to their environment, have intense emotional responses, and struggle to emotionally regulate when they become overstimulated. Their sensitivity to the world around them can be a gift, but it can also lead to frequent over-stimulation and an increased need for quiet time.
