You will be too much for some people.
Those aren’t your people.
Have you ever felt misunderstood… rejected… left out… singled out… too intense… too deep… too quirky… too emotional… or just too much for the people around you?
Fellow HSP, you are not alone.
It’s normal to feel this way, and even more normal if you’re a highly sensitive person. HSPs make up about 20% of the population – so there are quite a few of us, but non-HSPs still outnumber us as the majority. Not everyone will be able to relate to us. Maybe you’ve gone through seasons where it’s tough to find anyone who really gets you.
Each one of us is a unique creation, to be sure, and our diversity is important and enriching as a global community. But isn’t it also wonderfully life-giving when you discover another human who seems to think on the same wavelength as you? Someone who actually enjoys listening to what’s going on in your head, and understands when you need the lights dimmed or some quiet time to reflect?
What I really want to say to all of you HSPs out there, is this: Welcome Home.
The Mighty Sensitive is a place for highly sensitive people and those who love us.
We desire sincere, emotionally-intelligent, and mutually-encouraging relationships.
We aim to empower highly sensitive people to live by design, to practice guilt-free self-care, and to maintain healthy personal boundaries.
In accepting our HSP trait and living as uniquely intended by our Creator, we can offer strength, hope, and balance to a world in need of our unpretentious yet vital perspective.
I absolutely love this quote by Dr. Elaine Aron:
“We are the writers, historians, philosophers, judges, artists, researchers, theologians, therapists, teachers, parents, and plain conscious citizens. What we bring to any of these roles is a tendency to think about all the possible effects of an idea. Often we have to make ourselves unpopular by stopping the majority from rushing ahead. Thus, to perform our role well, we have to feel very good about ourselves. We have to ignore all the messages from the warriors that we are not as good as they are. The warriors have their bold style, which has its value. But we, too, have our style and our important contribution to make.”
We are lifelong learners who choose to grow from our weaknesses. We trust the Almighty Sensitive to continually transform us by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). Because we are deeply loved by our Creator, we honor our special purpose in this world.
So please settle in, make yourself at home, and relax. You can be your glorious HSP self here. You are among friends! Enjoy the camaraderie, be encouraged, and be sure to join our Facebook community.
