as a highly sensitive person, an hsp, i feel it when there is so much going on in the world. we can feel scattered and depleted. we have these superpowers: the ability to notice and process information on a deep level, we catch details that others often miss, we are creative, we are conscientious, we are intuitive and very empathic.
we are necessary for the survival of the species.
but these super powers have a cost. our kryptonite? busyness, over-work, too much going on, over-whelm and over-load, and noisy environments.
in this tedx talk, caroline ferguson demonstrates the power of the sensitive trait and how self-care is a must.
