There is a weird monster out there. Being sensitive is great, but this particular little monster can drive you crazy if you don’t know how to handle it. It’s called ‘Highly Sensitive’.

Explanation from the experts:

‘A highly sensitive person (HSP) is a person having the innate trait of high sensory processing sensitivity (or innate sensitiveness as Carl Jung originally coined it. According to researchers, highly sensitive people, who compose of about a fifth of the population (equal numbers in men and women), may process sensory data much more deeply and thoroughly due to a biological difference in their nervous systems.’

I have to battle this little monster and I can tell you that it’s not easy to feel everything so very deeply.

The strange thing about this monster is that it can be both a blessing as a curse.

Being a HSP does NOT mean that you are weird…

    • Hello dear former Wisconsinite! So where do you hail from now? I was in high in Milwaukee for two years at an Aspirancy (back in the days–School Sisters of St. Francis on Layton Blvd) and lived there while attending Marquette. And then again in the early 1990’s. Now I am in the cornfields of Palmyra! LOL…the Southern Kettle Moraine. Thank you for your visit to my blog—I am going to yours now! Blessings!

      • It is so great to meet you. I live in Pensacola, Florida now. I graduated from James Madison High. I went in the Air Force at 18 and did not go back to WI. Lived all over the U.S. My husband is retired now from the military. He is a 100% disabled vet. I retired early and have been writing and gardening ♡ We will have to stay in touch.
