Sensitivity

One of the things I get asked the most is, “How do I stop letting other people’s moods affect me?” I find that sensitive and empathic people are somewhat desperate for a solution to this “problem.” After all, it’s quite frustrating when you’re feeling happy, light, cheery, joyful, blissed out and out of nowhere you get...

Such a great question, right? I’d like to ask you: Do you keep looking for a “cure” to your sensitivity? Do you keep trying to “fix” yourself? Do you think you are broken? Here’s another question: Are you spinning your wheels asking yourself, “Why am I like this?” How much energy are you spending trying to find the answer...

I made this video in 2015, and I can’t believe it’s gotten almost 9,000 views as I’m writing this! This proves how many people can relate to being highly sensitive. One of my biggest desires is for HSP’s to know how NOT-alone we are, and this is actually social proof! This was actually the first time I publicly started...

I made a Facebook Live video the other day because I was experiencing parenting pain on the behalf of my 12 year old son. Remember being 12? I think I was experiencing some kind of drama or trauma every few days, so you can imagine that being a sensitive and empathic parent to my 10 and 12 year old children can feel a...

Has this ever happened to you? You are minding your own business when suddenly, you find yourself stuck in a corner listening to the finer details of someone’s life for what feels like hours. The amazing thing is…you haven’t uttered a single word for most of the conversation. When it’s finally over, you feel like a puddle...

When you hear or read the term: “The Highly Sensitive Person,” what kind of person do you conjure up in your head? Likely, that person has the following characteristics: Shy Withdrawn No people skills Awkward Usually female Bookworm Introverted Weak Frail Cries all the time Overly-emotional I can’t tell you the number...

As humans, we are sensory beings. As highly sensitive people, we have the unique ability to experience sensory information on a very deep level. This natural ability is often the cause of overstimulation and overwhelm. However, this is also a source of tremendous potential bliss. If you get intentional about your...

As Highly Sensitive People, we’re intuitive. We’re tuned in. We’re highly aware…of everything! This means that self-care of the big 3: our minds, our bodies and our spirits, is of critical importance because we literally consume everything around us (physically and energetically). We are therefore deeply affected by our...

As Highly Sensitive People (HSP’s), we are amazingly deep thinkers. As such, I love the barrage of questions I get about the highly sensitive trait. We are so inquisitive about our nature and eager to absorb all the information that is out there! So in order to quench some of your thirst for knowledge, I want to answer...

Most of us grow up and eagerly await the day when we will meet the person of our dreams, be swept off our feet and live happily ever after. That was my plan. I pined away for years, so excited for my soul mate to come along. I thought that once this happened, my life would be complete. I got married at 26 and was so...
