I met Brenda and took the MBTI… I had a fairly good understanding of these types before the meeting but was impressed by the depth of knowledge that Brenda shared with me. She clearly has a passion for this work and a gift in imparting the information. There have been doors opened for me because of our talks… — Alan Hintermeister

For the first time in my life I could truly explain, through your words the way in which I experience life and myself. Brenda… It all fell into place. I had found myself and had such a moment of clarity. It felt like such a big weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Finally I felt like it was ok to be me. I was not the only one. I had found people and a little space where I fit in. … I was at work and crying on the inside. Emotions ran wild inside me. I was ecstatic, sad, confused, motivated, i…

I have been dating an introverted man who I am very in love with for almost 2 years.  Reading your posts have helped me to be more supportive and understanding to him especially during the times when he needs space.  I just wanted to thank you for your weekly posts and let you know how helpful they are for someone who is in a relationship with an introvert.

Because of your blog, I know that it is possible for me to have the love that I want one day and that I don’t have to be alone.  — Indepthwoman  on space2live

This is me. This is me from the day I was born. For so long I felt misunderstood and rejected, even by the people closest to me, because they could never understand my need for solitude, and I had no idea how to explain it to them. Even now that I know more about Introversion and have a more informed understanding of my hard-wired need for solitude, it’s still very difficult sometimes to help my loved ones understand this profound craving for time and space all to myself. This is one of the best…

Brenda has truly opened up a space for introverted types on the ‘net, and her self-revelations are always inspiring. Her voice is one I always look forward to. She is one of the writers that actually played a part in my return to writing.  — S.E. of Sunflower Solace Farms

BRENDA: thank you SO much! Your advice is exactly what I need to do. I am amazed how much you “get” me after only exchanging a few messages!… Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ve helped me more than a year of therapy sessions! – Megan on space2live

I think I want to print out your articles and hand them out as a sort of relationship waiver form. “You want to be my friend?….You are interesting in going out? Here read this first. Sign here to acknowledge that you have read and understand the enclosed material. Thank you.” Seriously. I think it would work. — Guerin Moorman

Your site has saved my sanity and my life. Maybe even my marriage. I work part time and have two young boys at home, my husband is supportive of me but until recently I thought I was going crazy. … Reading your writing not only inspires me to pick up the pen again, but gives me nourishment in the deepest places. I will fight for balance. Everything you write is spot on… And wellness is so incredibly multifaceted.  I was ready to give up hope, but understanding myself through your words is bring…

Best of Space2live 2011: Exquisite Sex, Beautiful Introversion and Passionate Independence

Space2live came to life in February of this year.  I wanted a venue to post my writing, receive feedback and generally administer self-therapy.  I needed a foundation of work to leap from in order to even consider writing for a living. I wanted to improve and shape my writing. I wanted to see how consistent I could be.  Could I create a piece of writing with value every week?  The answer to that is subjective, but I did put something of myself on the page every week, amounting to 48 posts counting this one.

I guess I proved I can be consistent.  I also learned that I love the process and writer-reader connection of maintaining a blog.  It is fun for me to find out what I have to say to the world.  Sometimes I surprise myself;) (3 Elements of Exquisite Sex and Divine Writing).

2011 has been a huge year of personal growth for me, emotionally, spiritually and creatively.  I experienced pillow-soaked despair and awe-filled peace.  I believe I went light on the despair in my writing, mostly to protect others, but I tried to convey some of the peace through my words and experiences.  I plan to be even more open in 2012.

For now, here are the 2011 articles that resonated the deepest:

Beyond the above posts I also wanted to compile the top 5 pieces that came from an especially meaningful place within me.  These pieces demonstrate what I feel is some of my best writing and/or areas where I needed help and found it.  One way or another they are messages that I definitely want to share.  May they benefit you in some small way.
