• Empath,  Self Help

    Empaths must care for and stop self-sabotaging themselves

    An empath tends to be somewhat of a caretaker. We have such a desire to please and help others, we often do so at the expense of our own health.

    Too much darkness for a Mom….

    Fury of a Phoenix by Shannon Mayer My rating: 2 of 5 stars Darkness like you’ve never known Shannon is a brilliant author. Her writings always take you away to another world. We all have our light and dark sides. This book is her dark side. It’s beautiful in it’s darkness, yet I still must dislike it because of the pain and suffering.As a mother, this is a difficult series to read. If you can get past that darkness. If you can believe that good prevails, you might enjoy this series. But know, the darkness never completely goes away. If you finish the first book, you MUST finish the series.…
