Hey you, here’s more about me.

Where do I start? I am trying to think of a way I can tell you about me without sounding boring hehe. I don’t want this to sound like a LinkedIn about me section or a Facebook profile, so let’s get going.

I’m Grace. People who are close to me call me Gracey and people who know me inside out call me crazy Gracey. …

Three things to find out if you are suited for a woman’s needs.

Having been together with extroverted and introverted guys, I know what a woman wants in a man. Not to sound cocky (that is the worst trait in a man in my eyes), but I have come up with some ideal things that women find attractive in men.

You don’t have to overcomplicate things — it can be simple. So let us take a look at the three things women really want in men.


Research shows that women are less self-assured than men. A confident man to have by your side is something uplifting and reassuring.

As an extrovert woman, I…

An unexpected turn for the best

It has been a week or so since I have been slacking on Medium. I mean, I haven’t been writing every day as I was back in March when being in a mental clinic. Writing keeps me alive.

Sometimes I forget the power of writing and stop.

Sometimes I get annoyed at Medium and stop.

I put in a lot of effort and time and get around 50 dollars back per month (if I am lucky).

Don’t get me wrong, I am not here just for the money but I was feeling underappreciated until I got an email saying that…

Lessons learned from a twenty-something-year-old with a lot going on

A year ago, my life fell apart.

My relationship fell apart, I lost my job, my parents broke up and the pandemic broke out so I was left alone in my one-bedroom flat in Berlin.

One year later, and again, I’ve experienced some tragedy in the past few months coming in and out of the mental clinic due to being diagnosed with schizophrenia and depression.

My world has fallen apart time and time again, but I keep getting up and writing to show people it’s ok to not be ok (what isn’t ok is to be ok by not being…

Hard learned lessons from my the biggest break-up of my life

When my parents broke up this time last year, my world fell apart. I was also going through my own break-up, and it was a double whammy.

People say that it may be harder for your parents to break up when you are older, and I agree. You have so many memories, and you can’t imagine your parents separate as they were together for all your life so far.

Though I’m still navigating through this new situation, I’ve survived. But it has been one of the most challenging experiences of my life. …

1 in 4 people in the USA now suffer from some sort of mental health issue and the solopreneur way of life is rocketing. Not to mention, the self-improvement market is worth $10 billion (and growing).

We are experiencing a personal development addiction.

From life coaches to business coaches, all sorts of support have sprouted from the need to nurture mind and body during trivial times.

Have you also considered seeking professional help recently, either for mental health or business building? I’m positive we all need one. Outlined are the 2 reasons we all need a therapist or coach:


Lessons learned from a person dating an introvert

Recently, I have fallen in love with an introvert. Being an extrovert myself, I can be quite loud and ludicrous at times with the way I express myself.

However, when it comes to dating, I know what I want. I never thought I would fall in love in a mental clinic, but it just happened (Check out the link at the end of this article to find out more about my unique love story!)

Seeing my guy in the clinic for the first time, I knew I wanted to get to know him. …

#3: Change is a constant — learn to deal with it step by step

There’s a lot of energy for us to entertain at the moment; no denying it. We are all charging and changing at a rate that’s not normal for us, so how are we supposed to deal with it?!

I’ve felt like I want to do so much and then come crashing down and notice it’s about taking one step at a time. Due to Germany still being in lockdown, I feel like the pandemic is lasting forever… isn’t it?

As other countries come out of lockdown, this time is hard to not feel out of sorts.

Well, we have to…

“I can see — you are suffering from anxiety because of me.”

When my boyfriend uttered these words, I self-reflected like never before.

I am aware, open and chilled out (at least that’s how my friends describe me!), so what was happening?

“So many things can cause anxiety in relationships, and often that anxiety differs depending on what brought it on.” — Wendy M Yoder, Calm Clinic.

Relationship anxiety is good for you because you get the chance to show your colours and mix them in a palette of practical awareness.

It has shown me how to become more self-aware. Here are the two reasons that will light up relationship anxiety for…

#3 Stop listening to self-doubt

My boyfriend doesn't love himself. It’s a rocky road at times as I fall in love with him while he hopefully is falling in love with himself.

He doesn’t know how to. Sometimes loving yourself is a hard task at hand, not to mention accepting love from others on top of that. You feel undeserving, unworthy.

However, when you start to love yourself, the love from others is attracted to you. You become a magnet for love — and we all are these magnets, so let’s learn how to be!

“Self-love can provide contentment, streaming through like a rushing river.”…
