     When I was about five years old, my younger sister pushed me off a chair in our gallery and pointed to me to “Go get your own”. For that I cried and in that moment my father took a picture of us. I hated that word-cry baby and wondered if no one else felt the emotions I did...

    Dreams Of The Past

    I am currently having a series of dreams with a person from my past that I don't care much for, but I think that my subconcious is trying to tell me that I need to tie some lose ends.

    Ah yes , hard to be excitable over happiness

    while you can cry. I don't know why, but it's been a week now. It don't make sense to me. But well strained. And has now reached the steady where sound and silence hurts with nausea as a result. Anyone have experience with it ?

    I cry over everything.

    I cry when reading articles (and then when trying to discuss those articles with someone), when viewing art and reading poetry or literature. I cry contemplating the weight of the world, how awful the world is to those of us who are different, to the LGBTQ+ community, to women...

    I attract narcissists.

    They are all about themselves and i'm always the sucker that ends up caring for them. My best friend also my old roommate failed out of grad school. She moved out (which is understandable), replacing herself with a girl i did not want to live with and moving half way across...

    personality. And have some friends who are interested in this too. Been talking a lot with each other about MBTI. I have been depressed for many years in my life (right now all fine, no meds) and during this time I started to dig deeper to understand why I'm feeling the way I...

    I Don't Know Anyone Like Me.

    This will be short.  I've come to know that I'm not really my story.  But in any case - I come from a traumatic childhood ... just like many people. I have a doctorate in physical chemistry. I can still remember my mother mentioning to another person when I was about 7 years...

    Too Sensitive

    I have a lot to say about this but for now I will just tell you that being an HSP is hard. It takes a lot of coping mechanisms and alone time for me to manage my thoughts and emotions. I feel everything deeply. I feel other people's feelings and sometimes it's almost as if I can...

    Hsp :-)

    I didn't realize that there was a label for me until 2 days ago. It's an easier thing to say to people when you don't feel up to certain things otherwise they assume that you are selfish or even a bit of a snob (especially since I am also introverted). It can be painful but I...

    Living Without Knowing I Was A Hsp

    For reasons of confidentiality I won't say where I live, but what I'll say is that since I discovered I am a HSP I've been wanting to reach out to others like me and vent out some of these experiences that are quite uncommon.For starters, I'll say that since I was a child I've...

    It Can Be A Rewarding Life.

    I found out about HSP less than year ago and the last half century of chaos finally makes sense...I basically disconnected from the real world over a year ago and my story was “homeless, jobless & broke at 53” it was a gift because it gave me the space to totally break down...

    Good Grief!

    Sadly, I have had to mourn the deaths of many, many dear people through the years. It has been frustrating that here in the USA people are so uncomfortable with grief that they do not want to see or hear about one another's sorrow. I just saw a quote that is most appropriate...

    People Don't Understand Me

    I can sense moods just by walking in a room. I can also feel the energy coming off of people, if it is good or bad. It is too much at times. People don't know how to interact with me. I know i am different.

    Hello, I'm an hsp/hss.

    My coworkers came at me with the fact

    that they are walking on eggshells around me. I have been dealing with depression and a weight of issues surrounding being adopted. I freaked and couldn't believed people who I thought were my friends were that uncomfortable around me. I felt like I was totally exposed and...

    I found out a few months ago

    that I am an HSP. I was searching for answers to help with my son and while looking at gifted websites I found the highly sensitive information. I finally found what I was looking for. Both my sons and I are HSPs although my husband is not. It explained a lot. I always helped...
