Tinkerbell Syndrome

Brilliant, ambitious, perfectionist... These words correspond to some people, especially women, who suffer from “Tinkerbell” syndrome. But as in all fairy tales, there’s a dark side... Just like Peter Pan’s fairy, they try to impress and are perpetually unfulfilled, compulsively seductive, and even manipulative. Psychotherapist Sylvie Tenenbaum coined this term after noticing that some people were obsessed with appearances and success. Let’s explain.

Lack Of Sport

For many years, I was pretty good at sports: I went to the gym several times a week, I ran, and I swam. Even though I never took pleasure from it, I was aware that I had to be active, especially being overweight. However, since I finished my studies, there’s something I’ve been lacking horribly in order to do sports: time! And this is the case for many adults, as 95% of the 18 to 65-year-olds don’t do enough sport.

What Is Acrophobia?

I remember this suspension bridge in Northern Ireland, it was over the cliffs and the wind made it sway dangerously. It was impressive, but I thought I could get over it with no problem.

Are Narcissists Born Or Raised?

There you have it, the nature vs nurture debate is back, only this time I want to focus it on those deviously manipulative personalities we refer to as narcissists. Now, evidently these folks get bad press and rightly so because they are often at the root of plenty of harm, but is it really their fault?

Does Revenge Really Do Us Any Good?

“Revenge is a dish best served cold.” I’ve always heard this expression, but cold or hot, does revenge really do any good? The desire for revenge overwhelms us when we suffer an injustice. It’s a primary reaction mechanism rooted in our unconscious. When we suffer, we want the other person to suffer too. Let’s see why this makes us feel good, but also why revenge can be dangerous for our mental well-being. All will be explained.

What Makes A Narcissist Panic?

Dealing with a narcissist is never an easy feat, but understanding what makes these toxic personalities tick is key to avoiding their poisonous grip. Now, although these folks like to make people believe they have everything together and are untouchable, the truth couldn't be any further from this false reality.

Although they want people to believe that they are strong and resilient, there are certain things that make them sweat and definitely keep them up at night.

How To Turn Your Hypersensitivity Into A Strength

“Why are you crying again?” I’ve heard this question many times! It made me feel guilty because I had the impression that it wasn’t normal to be so sensitive.

This can be embarrassing depending on the situation you’re in, but you shouldn’t see it as a weakness. On the contrary! Hypersensitivity can be a strength if you accept it and channel it properly. Here’s how to turn your hypersensitivity into a strength.

How To Tell A Narcissist You Want A Divorce
