If you want people to understand what being highly sensitive is all about and to have fun doing it, you should share this painting, “The Story of a HSP”, by artist Eamon Reilly. It’s comprehensive (and colorful) but I would add these tweaks:
- Is because and .
- isn’t completely true for me. It sounds like something a slimy politician would say. I understand and I’m not made uncomfortable by the pain and suffering of others. I let myself remember what pain is in the presence of other people’s in pain.
- I’m only if art and food are religions.
- is an understatement.
- — I would replace this with “Built-in urge to advise”. When I figure something out or see how to make things better because I’ve figured things for myself and made things better in my own life, I want to share that information. I don’t like to be told what I should do, but I like to tell other people what they should do. No one listens to me and yet the urge persists.
This guy nailed it.
