    As A Reincarnationist, I Believe That High Sensitivity Is Needed For Spiritual Growth

    I'm a true HSP.  It's hard to live in a world that is generally color-blind (black and white) but to instead experience brilliant shades of color and texture and depth everywhere.  Of course I have been told the same things, "You think too much"; "You always make a...

    Yes I am and annoyingly so.

    I have no idea why but all kinds of things get to me and I get very sad a lot. I can't watch sad movies ever. But the opposite happens too. I can get really happy and hyper.

    I am grateful for my sensitivity,

    it may mean I cry in Disney movies and empathise frequently, it also means I can feel more deeply, and that's a big part of how I make sense of the world

    I hate the fact that I am always the person

    who likes others more, like if someone just leaves me, it really fu*king destroys me, and I don't really know what to do. I feel confused about everything for weeks, years even, and I don't really know what I have done to make everyone leave me. I don't understand how other...

    It's crazy how in-considerate You are.

    U are trying to find the words to say u are sorry but when and if u do u would never take back what u did. So stop lying to the people that love you....or at least they do for now.

    My boyfriend is depressed.

    It leaves me lost and confused. I don't want to take what he says or does personally, but I want to put my foot down and express when what he's doing to me is not okay. So far, this seems to have worked. The only problem is, he is still not communicating. This is hard for him...

    I'm a sensitive person; yes.

    I don't like when people raise their voices or talk down to me. Fighting back is not one of my better values. I'm also sensitive to people. I don't have many friends but the ones I have, I'm very sensitive to. I feel their emotions with them. I never take anything they say...

    I am not apathetic like the rest of my family.

    I do have an understanding of unfortunate events that happen to good people. I try to be as supportive as I can. Note that I suffer from Aspergers Syndrome and part of the symptoms is that it is hard for me to show empathy, but I do the best I can.
