Three Tips to Move Toward Empowered Sensitivity

By now, almost everyone has heard the term “Highly Sensitive Person”. I have to admit, I bristle when I hear that term.

I’m sure I’ve missed a lot there, but part of our sensitivity is learning about our true yes’s and no’s ~ and for me, 98% of the stuff I read on HSP is a ‘no’.

Or maybe the way they don’t carry themselves; oh dear, perhaps they slump right in on their own heart? Maybe you yourself do. Ouch. Do you notice the look on a child’s face when their wisdom or curiosity is shut down? When someone seems to experience being seen, supported, cherished? Or when they are disheartened? If you are noticing these kind of things around you, I’m guessing the world may be a bit of a painful place for you. So many people notice...
