Narcissistic Injury

Narcissism is a captivating subject because it often refers to the love we have for ourselves. Now, self-love is very similar to the love we have for others, but it is often the cause of terrible suffering too. If I am a narcissist, if I love myself beyond measure, then I surely have a terrible fear of failure, and if, on the contrary, I carry a deep narcissistic injury within me, then I am unable to appreciate myself to my true value. The balance is, as always, a very thin line, but, this begs the question, how can I love myself better? Well, the obvious answer seems to be by trying to heal this narcissistic wound, whatever it is!

I’m Scared Of Failure

“I won’t manage it”, “I can’t do it”… I often say this because I doubt my abilities tremendously. Being so negative allows me to calm my fear of failure a bit. By doing nothing, I don’t run the risk of failing. I prefer to do nothing and remain in a state of waiting, for fear of not succeeding. So I procrastinate, thinking about the fact that I didn’t take the plunge out of anxiety. How can I overcome this fear to really start doing things?

“I Love Myself And It Feels Good”…

I sometimes say this sentence. There are days when I feel good and/or beautiful, so when I look in the mirror, I say, “I love myself” and it feels good. However, I’m sorely lacking in self-confidence. There are lots of things that make loving myself a rollercoaster ride, so today I decided to tell you all about it in this very intimate article. When self-love is a long path…

Emotional Fatigue

The past two years of the pandemic haven’t been good for our mental health, to say the least. It’s even left some people feeling very emotionally tired: irritability, loss of energy and pleasure, feeling of incapacity… Most often, we don’t identify these small signals that are nevertheless the sign of mental exhaustion. Understanding emotional fatigue can help you escape the worst and prevent you from totally collapsing. Let’s talk about it.

When Inhibition Prevents Me From Asserting Myself…

For many years, I had a lot of trouble expressing my emotions despite my hypersensitivity. I was unassuming and didn’t dare say what I thought. With age, I managed to express myself more and more and say loudly and clearly what I felt. Looking back, I can now say that I was inhibited. But what exactly is inhibition? How can you overcome it? Let me explain.

Covid Has Encouraged Us To Work Less And Enjoy Life More!

Reevaluating my relationship with work has played on my mind for years now. Work less, enjoy life more is probably one of the best slogans to emerge moving on from the Coronavirus pandemic. For years, many of us endured jobs we hated in conditions that we despised, yet when Covid reared its ugly head, it brought about a working revolution. So, what does tomorrow hold for our professional lives? Will it be full of relaxation? What if we decided to change our attitudes to work as of now?

Changing Your Habits

Caught up in my routine and daily life, I sometimes forget that the key to happiness is new things. And then one day, out of the blue, I change my route home and feel… lighter, less confined, freer. Habits are just as necessary as they are harmful, but there are 6 that might make you a little happier. Any bets? 😏

The Perfect Morning Routine To Ease Anxiety

For the past 5 years, I’ve suffered from crippling anxiety, which often spun out of control and left me feeling like a prisoner in my own body.

Although, one day I suddenly decided that the invasive, irritating voice in my head needed to be silenced! Now, no one ever really recovers from anxiety, but the symptoms can be alleviated with a simple morning routine, for example.

My desk is full of post-its, I get overwhelmed, and I’m often right on schedule! I know that prioritizing is the key to being organized at work, but how do you do that when you feel that all your tasks are important? There are different ways to do this, but the most important thing to remember is that you can learn to prioritize. Here’s how!
