Sensitive-What is it

A highly sensitive person (HSP) is someone who is thought to have an increased or deeper central nervous system sensitivity to physical, emotional, or social stimuli. Some refer to this as having sensory processing sensitivity, or SPS for short.

Do you feel that your sensitive nature has not brought you anything except pain? If in a ruthless world like ours, you consciously choose to be a sensitive person, you are a brave and mighty warrior.

Your heart beats for others and you feel everything too deeply. Others’ emotions are as much important to you as your own. Do all these make your life easy? No! People take advantage of your good nature and you get hurt a lot.

To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness.

Sensitive -how to improve it

  • Set a bedtime and morning routine.
  • Identify your triggers.
  • Plan ahead.
  • Work around triggers.
  • Investigate current stressors and solutions.
  • Remember your gifts.
  • Take mini retreats.
  • Engage in gentle exercise, example: perspective jumping.
  • Mindfulness. Daily mindfulness is one of the best tools to pull you away from your reactive thoughts and into the present moment.
  • Brain training. Our brain is a bit like a computer.
  • Acceptance.
  • Daily journalling.
  • Self care.

They hear nearly every sound, notice every movement, and process the expression on every person’s face. And that means that simply walking through a public space can be an assault on their senses.

You are harsh in your judgments of others and, secretly, you are even more critical of yourself. Being emotionally sensitive can be a valuable quality when it is tied directly to emotional awareness. Your sensitivity is the key to understanding your own emotional experience and the emotional experience of others.
