I want to touch on the topics of sensitivity. I have been writing about HSP, highly sensitive person, and how it might play out in ones life. Many of us HSPs don't know that we have many traits in common with others and we might feel awkward about certain traits.
We might be introverted or extroverted, but we always need time and space to spend in quiet and stillness. We gain energy by being solitary and in nature. We love spending time with those we love, but we might feel drained after depending on the energetics and the vibration of the other. We are like energy and emotion sponges and as we are taking in all stimuli, we are also taking on other's feelings as well. This is why we might get tired and overwhelmed by bigger crowds, subways, noisy and loud places such as bars and pubs and when we haven't gotten any time for ourselves.
Many of us are expected by work, society and groups of friends to always interact with others and to maybe join conferences, social gatherings and being ok with speaking in front of groups. But for us HSP, this type of model does not work. Actually, the more we try to fit in with society's demands, the more we disconnect with our needs.
I have always been HSP, ever since I was a small child and not wanting to always play with others, not feeling comfortable around bigger groups and guest gatherings. As I grew older, I felt safe with have a tight group of soul family members, where I could let go and be the sensitive and emotional me that I am.
As we grow older, our HSP traits tend to become stronger and as the years past, I notices that certain work places and certain social settings just didn't bring me any peace of mind, I constantly felt like needing to expense so much energy and I didn't realize that is was slowly depleting me, on a mental, physical and emotional level. But as I learned more about myself and my needs, accepted them and honored them, I learned what I need and don't need.
I love sharing with the world and I also love to become the introverted hermit. The HSP traits for me also go hand in hand with more intuitive and psychic traits, and I am aware that I am not only sensing the physical realm but also the esoteric realms. Also common for HSPs are a dose of anxiety. I can have anxiety before being in bigger social groups, going on the subway or taking the bus. I also get overwhelmed when I have too much going on and I can't see any "me time" for a couple of days. Therefore I am not big on planning.
Another thing that could be experienced is anxiety around saying no, to social events or gatherings, work commitments etc. We know that we should honor ourselves but we are scared of disappointing others or to be dis-liked. We love harmony and we do not like to offend others. On this point, I will just say: YOU DO YOU, love and honor your energy if you need time and space. It is only when you are caring for yourself that you can care for others.
I will write more on this topic. Please share and comment if you have any reflections.
