HSP - Highly Sensitive Person

Updated: May 26, 2023

As a highly sensitive person myself, I know that our sensitivity can be both a strength and a vulnerability. It's important for us to be mindful of our needs and limitations, and to take steps to protect our well-being.

Here are a few things that highly sensitive people need to watch out for:

➡️ Overstimulation: We are easily overwhelmed by loud noises, bright lights, and chaotic environments. It's important to recognize when we are reaching our limit and to take breaks when necessary to recharge.

➡️ Emotional overload: Our empathy and sensitivity to others' emotions can leave us feeling drained and emotionally exhausted. It's important to set boundaries and prioritize self-care to prevent burnout.

➡️ Criticism: We take criticism to heart and may internalize it, leading to self-doubt and anxiety. It's important to reframe criticism as constructive feedback and not to take it personally.

➡️ Decision-making: We may struggle with decision-making due to our tendency to overthink and analyze all the possibilities. It's important to trust our instincts and seek input from trusted sources.

➡️ Work-life balance: We may struggle to separate our work life from our personal life and may feel guilty for taking time off. It's important to prioritize self-care and set boundaries to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Being highly sensitive is a gift, and it's important to embrace and honor our sensitivity. By being aware of our needs and limitations, we can thrive in the workplace and in life.
