The Advantages Of Being A Sensitive Person

being a highly sensitive person, emotional person, sensitive people, taking on other people's emotions, this stuff is golden,

I have begun to really notice how my emotions can sometimes switch by the hour or even by the minute. After I had been to a very nerve-wrecking second interview, My SO and I decided to stay in town for a bit. Having just moved into a new apartment, we thought we’d make the most …

How To Be Cool

how to be cool, this stuff is golden, best qualities to have, be yourself, be weird, be kind, be polite, what being cool really means,
