55: How Language Helps Us for Self-Expression and Self-Care

It’s easy to agree that everyone is different, but does anyone know what it’s like to be your brand of different? Have you ever sat down to explain it to someone before, and then been at a loss for words? Language and self-expression have such a huge influence on one another, so it is no surprise that Intensity leaves its own unique signature on how we express ourselves too! If your intensity has ever made you feel different, alone, or misunderstood, then today’s episode will speak right to your heart.

Today, we are excited to have with us Anamaria Bambaren Call, the Founder of the Gifted Culture Project. Anamaria is a Linguist who knows what it is like to be Gifted, different, and unable to express it. Anamaria is a Third Culture Kid, whose grew up feeling different, but not really knowing why. Later, Anamaria was identified as Gifted, and that began a series of experiences that led her to her study of Linguistics. Anamaria believes that everyone has a story to tell, and those stories make us stronger, more colorful and more fully known. She uses her fire to help others tell their stories and embrace their difference. There is a source of creativity and power that comes from your own unique Intensity. Anamaria expresses that truth using her beautiful words, and you will walk away inspired today.
