Blessing and a Curse, Being Hyper Sensitive in the World



I've just read this description and, unfortunately, it describes me to a T 🤣:


"Highly sensitive people


I consider myself a highly sensitive person (HSP). Some of you reading this may be considered one too. Psychologists say this describes about 1 in 5 people, and the most common traits include:


Depth of processing: HSP often need more time to process information from their environment.


Over arousal: HSP often become more reactive and aroused on an emotional and physical level.


High empathy: HSP are often very empathic and are frequently experiencing other people’s emotions from a first person perspective.


Sensitivity to subtle stimuli: HSP often pick up certain information that wouldn’t be noticed by others"
