Are you a highly sensitive person? Signs and Symptoms



ARE YOU A HSP? ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


This research helped me to understand myself a lot better ๐ŸŒฑโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


I'm often mistaken as an extrovert... And believe me - I can masquerade v well as one ๐Ÿ’ƒโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


BUT I'm definitely more of an introvert... ๐Ÿ™โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


I NEED regular time alone to recharge ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


Young me never understood why I noticed subtleties the way I do ๐Ÿ‘€โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


Why I felt different to everybody else ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ‘โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


Why my best party trick was the disappearing act๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


& why I 'just know' things sometimes ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


For years I was confused by a lot of my sensitivities ๐ŸŒŠโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


It was & IS such a brilliant asset โค๏ธโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


But I had some deep curves on the way to learning how to harness that power ๐Ÿ’ฅโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


To learning how to disconnect from all the energy I encounter on a daily basis ๐Ÿ’ซโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


I recommend this to anyone else who is brutally soft underneath those layers ๐ŸŒนโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


To anybody who has ever been told they're "too sensitive" or felt different to everybody else ๐Ÿ‘€โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


To anybody that struggles to disconnect from energy & has used substances as a way to "mask up" & cope ๐ŸŽญโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


There isn't anything 'wrong' with you ๐Ÿคฒโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


Your gifts, your path is different ๐ŸŽโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


And a one-size fits all approach will never do... โŒโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


For someone as special as you ๐ŸŽˆโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹


I encounter many people in my work who are unaware that they are Empaths and/or HSP's... understanding these traits in ourselves are extremely beneficial for our wellbeing & overall success & happiness in life.
