I get it. I experience it. I totally understand. Life can feel challenging for us highly sensitive people.
Being sensitive can feel like a curse.
If you’re highly sensitive, you feel everything intensely, and it can be overwhelming.
You can feel like you’re a square peg in the round hole of our culture.
The word “sensitive” is used as an insult. You may often feel misunderstood and overlooked.
As a sensitive, you can feel different to everyone else.
The anxious reactions. The sense of being on edge. Noticing subtleties to which other people seem oblivious. Feeling overwhelmed by emotion. You might feel there’s something wrong with you. You may wish you could just toughen up and cope with life better. You may even believe that you are broken.
I write this to you, because I’ve felt it too.
How does being highly sensitive feel for you?
There’s nothing wrong with you, you’re just highly sensitive
But I feel it is SO important to recognize that, despite these challenging feelings, there’s nothing wrong with HSPs.
It’s not a syndrome, nor is it a condition to be cured or managed.
The way I see it, some people have brown hair, others blonde. Some people have blue eyes, others brown. Some people have a highly sensitive nervous system; others don’t.
But because we live in a noisy, overstimulating world we HSPs often feel anxious and stressed and overwhelmed because our nervous system reaches saturation point long before that of the non-HSP.
If you’re highly sensitive it’s time to embrace the idea that there’s nothing wrong with you.
It’s just that you need to allow yourself the self-care you deserve by learning ways to re-balance and soothe your often-overstimulated nervous system.
Spend time on yourself. Invest in your health and wellbeing.
Then you can thrive and share your gifts with the world.
