Highly Sensitive People
“There is nothing wrong with you if there are times you get weighed down by the heaviness of the suffering in the world.” ― Rachel Samson
Does this sound like you?
- You have a high sensitivity to lights and sound
- You become overwhelmed quickly around a lot of people
- You are drained quickly by other people’s energy
- You over-think every decision you make
- You are a perfectionist
- You startle easily
- You put the needs of others before your own
- You pick up on the emotional pain of others, and it exhausts you
If you identify with any of these points, you may very well be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Take the quiz to find out!
I want you to know that I get it because I myself am highly sensitive, and working with HSPs is one of my specialties!
I help highly sensitive people to better understand their personality traits so that they can see their sensitivity as a gift, as opposed to something that leaves them feeling small and seemingly out of control.
I can show you how to feel unashamed of, and empowered by this trait, which is such an important part of who you are. It just needs cultivating and nurturing. Your sensitivity is a strength!
“Spend enough time putting yourself out there in the world—your sensitivity is not something to be feared.” ― Elaine N. Aron, The Highly Sensitive Person
Check out this episode of the podcast, Unapologetically Sensitive, that I was a guest on. I talk with a childhood friend, who is also a therapist, and we talk about the fears we had as kids but never talked about with each other.
I talk about how it felt changing schools frequently and auditioning after school for commercials and acting gigs. We talk openly about mental health diagnoses, medication, and the stigma that comes with having a diagnosis.
If you love honest and open conversations, I think you'll enjoy this. You can find it on your favorite podcast player, or listen directly at https://unapologeticallysensitive.com/episode-56/
