How To Develop “Thicker Skin”: Five Ways

Have you ever had someone tell you that you need thicker skin, meaning that you are too sensitive and respond to insult way too easy? If so, I totally get it! Before I continue, I want to suggest you embrace your sensitivity and all of the good things about it. If you are sensitive it means you are compassionate, empathetic, and that you care about all that brings goodness in this life. If you are too sensitive it means you can easily react out of your wounds. This is not all together a bad thing, so if this is you, don’t fret! It means that it points to where your wounds are and that can help you heal a lot. Here Comes the Story!  First, before I go further, you KNOW I have to tell a story. Yep, I have one for every message I put out there! When I was taking classes to become a medical assistant way back in the stone age, we used to use an orange to do injections on before …

It’s Just My Style Honey!

I woke up one morning after writing a blog post regarding some touchy women’s issues to  private message  that questioned, “Who are you talking to in that blog post”? From the rest of the contents of the message I imagine what I posted kind of struck a nerve in her. That’s a good thing! That is what my writing is supposed to do. Yet, I can see that some of my personal writing style can cause one to either think it is them that I am publically addressing, or one might think it is myself I am speaking about. I often relay my personal stories but the content is not always necessarily about something in my personal life. Usually I am Holy Spirit prompted to write about a certain subject, like now. Since I am not in my 20’s any more and have lived at least half of a lifetime, my subjects are concerning things I have witnessed over a fairly long period of time. I might speak of opinions, actions, personalities, or things that might …

Building Trust Among Women (Do NOT Cross the LINE)

Before you read this, I want to warn you. I am going to be blatantly honest in this post. If you can’t handle some direction, correction, or Godly truth, then turn back around and click out of this whole blog. I hope I have been tactful enough in what you are about to read. The warning still remains that this post is going to be honest and I want to speak directly to you, if I may. Women have an amazing ability to establish loyalty and very healing alliances. We love to commune in circles with one another, shoot the breeze, enlighten each other, and give prayerful support. We are the nurturers of this world. Shoot, we are darned amazing! There is no doubt about that. But, some decisions we might make are just plain stupid when it comes to diplomacy, building trust among each other, and remaining in respect of personal boundaries. I’m going to speak to some of those situations where boundaries can be crossed if I may. As you read them, if …

Advantages of a Highly Sensitive Person

Have you ever had someone say to you, “You are being so sensitive”, or ” You are just too sensitive of a person”? It almost sounds like an insult, doesn’t it? It’s like being sensitive is a bad thing to be. In all honesty it really is not all that bad. Personally, I think if I had the choice I would rather be around a sensitive person than one who is insensitive. If you are one of the many highly sensitive people in this world, you have some great advantages to celebrate! Advantages of Highly Sensitive People Good things that happen in life are experienced with more depth and can be even more euphoric. Sensitive people are more aware of things surrounding them and therefore can be more cautious. Laughter and joy can be even more intense and experienced more often and longer. All things mystical and spiritual are much more magnified and experienced more profoundly. Compassion and humility come more easily. Sensitive thinkers can more readily see things from more than one angle; like …

Woman To Struggling Woman

I remember having a neighbor who was a single mom of a couple teen aged kids. I could feel the stress without even knowing her because I was a single mom with five kids in years gone by. It is not an easy position to hold in this world. Single mothers get battered by society a great deal. People don’t always know this because we don’t always talk about it. I know I didn’t talk about it too much because I did not want to be judged for mistakes I knew I made and times I knew I fell short. Life was hard enough without any added judgement stress.  It’s a struggle. Anyway, the neighbor I am speaking of was obviously in a struggle all of the time and I know most of us could hear her struggle from across the street and down the block. Her lights were on from early in the morning until late at night and I wondered if this woman ever slept at all. I also heard the neighborhood speculations, …

Strength to Let it Go the Right Way

Sometimes it takes all the strength we have to just keep our mouth closed when our hearts so need to express how we feel. After all, it is not a good feeling to keep things that bother us inside, not to mention it harms our bodies. There are times when I feel I have mastered “being slow to speak” and wait for the better moment to speak when my thoughts will come out better. I don’t always succeed at  this goal though. I do know that when I do wait there is a special reward that comes with it. God never gives us direction without some sort of good result when we have achieved the goal. Sometimes that reward is peace, which is a huge accomplishment. If peace were an island I would book a sail boat to live there right now. Maybe the idea is to experience enough peace that we come to want it so bad that we will do anything to get it; even be slow to speak when the moment arises. …
