Five Signs You’re an Old Soul

By | Self Love & Empowerment | No Comments

 

I’ve always identified with being an old soul.

 

While I admire shiny new pennies and all of their enthusiasm for life, there’s something compelling about the deep nature that comes with settling into yourself. Old souls have a deep appreciation for the life they live, but fond respect for the life before. If you totally understand what I’m talking about, then chances are – you’re an old soul. Here are a few more signs that you could fall into this camp! Read More

Careers For Your Personality Type

Although it might seem like common knowledge that your personality and career are obviously linked – that wasn’t the trending belief for a long time in the United States. Due to wars, the Great Depression, and societal pressures, many believed that work was an obligatory endeavor necessary to keep food on the table and contribute to a bright future for offspring. Careers were far from being held as an avenue for individual expression. Read More

An Open Letter From Introverts

Hi, it’s us, Introverts.

 

We just wanted to write a quick note to everyone to clear the air. We know that we can be hard to read, a little closed off, and even irritable sometimes, but we do love you. To help you deal with us, we have put together a list of things you should know about Introverts!

1. Weekdays Are Me Days.

“Errr…Book Club is on Mondays? Um. Ok I can’t make it. Ever. Why? Because it’s on Monday.”

We swear it’s not because we don’t like you. And it’s also not just because we want to catch up on True Detective (nightmares for days). The reality is, we don’t want to have to be “on” for three more hours. Socializing is for the weekends and the occasional Thursday (or every Thursday if you’re in college). We’re up for it then. We’re not up for it on Mondays. Of course we bend the rules for breakups, important meetings, or special occasions. So basically, if it’s not your birthday, it can wait ’til Friday. Read More

The Female Double Bind

The Double Bind:

An emotionally distressing response as a result of two conflicting messages

Yeah, I think we know something about that.

Call it what you want: Hobson’s choice, a Catch 22, damned if you do, damned if you don’t—whatever figure of speech you prefer, it’s all the same. Society expects one thing, but then demands another. Exhausting.

Even with all the research in the world, these double binds do not even need to be proven by science—we live them every day. Think about something as simple as salary. Women rightfully ask for equal pay, and as a result are then called pushy (or possibly even fired). If we choose to ignore the disparity, we keep our jobs stable and coworkers friendly while we ignore our own self-worth. And that’s just one example.

From personality to advocacy, females are stuck between a rock and a hard place. We found four major female double binds affecting women, however, there are many more lurking in the waters. As women, it’s our job to find them, share them, and fight them. Let’s get started.

7 Things Extroverts Want You to Know

With all the attention the Introverts are getting on the Internet, it’s time for the Extroverts to have a voice.

And our voice is louder by nature, so this shouldn’t be too hard (obligatory extraversion joke). Obviously being extroverted is awesome, but we have to deal with crap too, ok? So our friends at Blush have put their heads together to come up with some things that need to be addressed. Ladies and gentlemen…here we go. Here are seven things extroverts want you to know.

1. We Aren’t Hitting On You. Chill Out.

The great thing about being extroverted is that we really do like to socialize with everybody. The not so great (or maybe also really great) part about being extroverted is that we don’t take gender into account.

Basically, if we ask if anyone is sitting next to you, we aren’t doing that coy flirtatious bit. We just want to sit down. Or, if you down your last sip of {insert age appropriate drink here}, buying you a refill doesn’t mean we’re trying to date you. We just have good manners. (Oh, stawp!) And last but not least, if we ask for your name, we are not hitting on you. Believe me, you’ll know when we hit on you. And you will like it.
