So Relieved To Know That I'm Not Alone After All.I was so relieved to learn that there are HSP's out there like me. I only recently learned about HSP quite accidentally actually. I was on an internet news website clicking on links to stories that sounded interesting to me and ran across a link to a story entitled, "Are You A Highly Sensitive Person?" As I read the article my tears began to freely flow as they often do because for the first time in my 48 years of life I felt like finally someone understands me.
I have felt so all alone in the world my entire life. I've felt like some kind of freak or emotional basket case, so different from everyone else around me. I had honestly believed that I was the only person on earth that felt things so intensely that they often become overwhelming to me.
It's so good to not only know that I am not alone but to know that I'm not mentally unstable or just outright crazy.
