Your words are my lifeline.  I sit down to your posts and as I read I can feel my acceptance of myself and my needs grow.  Your words validate my feelings about my life, motherhood, relationships and it is something I hold onto.  And during the times when I feel like I am not able to be a mother or a wife or a sister or a friend or whatever someone needs me to be, I go back to your words and find some peace…I send your posts to my husband when I need him to understand that I love him but I need …

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 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.

That courage and dedication you so generously share with the world, has inspired me to push myself a little harder, persevere at each task a little longer, dig a little bit deeper to where the answers just “feel” right to both my humanity AND my spirit. Your insights have reinforced my direction and given me additional tools that help me clear my path. I’m wired into my creativity as never before and the new music is pouring out of me faster than I can record and produce it; this is the Un…

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

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…

During one of the harder times in my life I found Brenda’s website
and reached out to her. To say the least it has been one of the best
decisions I have made. Being an extrovert I never quite understood
what it meant to romantically involved with an introvert. Brenda does
an incredible job listening, giving in the moment feedback, and helped
me understand the how an introvert functions. She helped explain to me
that I am introspective extrovert, and this gave something to identify
with and allowed me t…

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

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

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:

4. Soul Painting: Beyond Artistic Talent

5. Is It Selfish to Choose Passion and Work Over Family?

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.
