Is This ME?

Do you struggle with keeping quiet and being exuberant with ideas to make things better?  Do you see patterns, connections or solutions that seem obvious and yet others wonder where you are coming from?  Are you expected or expect yourself to settle on one career and yet so many things interest you?  Are you excited easily and also hurt easily?  Do you have lots of energy?  Do you often feel out-of-sync with others? Do you have a vivid imagination and are driven by your creativity?  Do you often question authority?  Do you need periods of contemplation?

These characteristics have been identified as a person with extra intelligence (Kuplers & Van Kempen) or gifted (Jacobsen or Streznewski or Silverman).  The key is you have high ability and are multitalented.  We need to understand ourselves to overcome the frustrations we experience with limiting our expression of our potential.  We are driven to be who we are, but have established strategies to fit in and not be noticed.  Yet, the spark remains within that wants to be fanned so that we can be a contribution.  Let’s do that today!

Ask Me: Do I have to focus on only one thing?

    “Mediocrity, limiting one’s multi-talents, is an option.  However being you offers greater moments of joy.” Edith Johnston PhD LPC   The habit of blending in – being average – leads to mediocrity.  It means we are engaging and making it by current standards.  However, many times there is this little gnawing in our […]

Ask Me: What is with feeling so empty and no hope?

    “Facing the abyss, the turmoil of loneliness, our response is self-compassion.” Edith D Johnston PhD LPC   Not being heard; not being accepted; feeling all alone, creates a hollowness, an emptiness inside.  Not seeing results, or outcomes that matter leaves us hanging.  The experience can be confusion and pain from all the suffering, […]
