HSP - Highly Sensitive Person

#1

Post by 1over137 »

Hi friends,

Not sure if all of you have heard about HSPs. Highly sensitive person. (https://hsperson.com/)

Half a year ago, I read a book by Dr. Elaine Aron: The Highly Sensitive Person.
And everything started to be clear.
My childhood and all.
I now know that am not 'faulty' person or what.
But that 20% of the whole population are HSPs.
It is in our genes. We are sincere, authentic, empathetic.
We are not weak. It is that our nervous system receives more information. That is why we notice more when we enter the room.
We pick other's emotions, pain and all. And since we pick more information, we exhaust more sooner.
That is why we appear weak or what. But in fact, we are strong.

Let me encourage to be who you are. Do not be what others want you to be. All is alright with you and live your life.

Hannah, dear Hannah... anyone who even simply peruses this site knows...

"We are sincere, authentic, empathetic and We pick other's emotions, pain and all." ...is all about you... you are neither weak or faulty and should never be described as such. I have never heard of HSP, but I'm glad you got it !

"Let me encourage to be who you are. Do not be what others want you to be, All is alright with you and live your life."
This line does not end your post without sincere empathy and the desire to see all who read it and feel it, to flourish.

dear ES, :)

:heart:

Yes, empaths want people to flourish. It's in us, we long for world peace :)

I see, it is still not known by people that there are 20% of all population HSPs.
And I am noticing this HSP 'movement' happening in the world.

So, I will continue to post in this thread.
I plan to make a post on boundaries.
That's what I learn - to put boundaries and not to be a rug for other people.

Well, everybody reading this post can test himself via self-test: https://hsperson.com/test/
(There is also a test if your child is HSP. It may happen parent is not and child is and this poor parent does not know really what his child needs and may be desperate.)

posting soon,
have all nice day

I did the test with the link you provided and am not an HSP. I would have preferred to be one...

I know you lost your first husband to an illness. My question is, what are the advantages an HSP person has over someone who is not when going through a loved one’s terminal illness?
