I once thought that being sensitive meant i’d cry at every sad movie and struggle BIG time when my period hit.
Ok so this is true but the benefit of having the personality trait of a Highly Sensitive Person is that as much as I feel the bad harder than most, I also feel the good more too.
And that’s pretty awesome!!
Feeling love harder, happiness harder, even laughter harder. I’ll take that universe, thanks very much 🙂
That being said, a day spent in my brain can become ever so slightly out of hand…
Situation 1 – boss calls HSP into his office for friendly catch up chat
HSP Thought Process – I am going to get fired for that time 97 days ago I used an envelope to send a personal letter

HSP Thought Process – What have I done wrong? Why doesn’t she like me?
