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…

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…

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

THANK YOU….. you just summed up my swirling thoughts into something i can read with out everything else in my head meshing with it. I finally feel like i can explain what happens within without getting distracted. I’m an Introvert with ADD and it makes it so hard to explain quite what im feeling sometimes. — M.G. on space2live

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…

   …we did spend a good part of our income on household help.  I don’t regret that at all.  Baby-sitters allowed me to preserve my sanity, to the extent that I have it.  I always had at least three hours in the morning to write.  I couldn’t have given up writing.  I think I could have [...]

These are not my children. Never too early to start a technology addiction... I can’t reach my kids.  And I think I know why.  They have the attention spans of minnows.  I can’t say that only children have this problem.  We adults are just as bad with our iPhones and web browsing.  Hell, I [...]

I get a little wiggy when it comes to packed schedules and excessive togetherness. I mentioned my fear of non-stop kid chaos during school breaks in Thoughts for the Thoughtful and An Introvert Prepares for Summer Parenting.  I spoke of a deep need for meaningful accomplishment in A Room of One’s Own.  More than anything [...]

I once held a friend’s hair back as she vomited at a sleepover.  My friend, Laura, was not truly wanted at the party (and knew it) but the popular-girl hostess had been forced by her mother to invite her.  The whole night had been awkward as Laura danced for the queen bee and her sidekick.  While playing charades [...]
