Being uniquely you

Sensitivity opens you up to creativity, empathy and imagination, but it also opens you up to a whole range of emotions that other people just don’t have the capacity to feel. Emotions are on high volume all the time. It can be extremely frustrating and cause feelings of anxiety, loneliness and depression. Connecting with other Highly Sensitive People can be a great comfort. But sometimes it is hard to be understood and taken seriously by other non-HSPs. Who of us haven’t heard the phrase: just pull yourself together, or: can’t you just control your emotions.

It is of vital importance that we all respect each other’s differences and listen to each other. Yes, we are all human, but what does that really mean? Humans are extremely complex beings, and that is, in my opinion, what makes us so interesting. Be open to this complexity, be willing learn and meet each individual with openness of heart and mind. Not everyone is like you, in fact, there is no one like you at all, and that is what makes you so uniquely interesting and important. And that is what makes each individual so uniquely interesting and important. It is time we start treating each other as such: as complex, beautiful and fascinating individuals.

  1. Wow, Trini. This speaks to my most inner core. I can totally relate to that. I am used to pulling myself together and often I think this has become a regular way of living my life on a daily basis. Many won’t understand or accept that some of us are more sensitive and cannot bear as much at the same time as they can. So many impressions or demands. Panic attacks, anxiety, and overwhelm can be constant companions haunting you even in your sleep. Tolerance and honest acceptance is required. An acceptance to take everybody as they are and not put them into a labeled drawer.

    • Yes, exactly! 😊 You know, most of us HSPs are masters in letting others live out their authentic selves around us. We tolerate everything, we don’t judge because we understand the deeper trauma within and the fear most hate is sprung from, we don’t take offense, even though we get hurt easily, and we forgive unconditionally and instantly. Imagine, if we gave the same love to ourselves. If we let ourselves be our own authentic selves always, with the attitude that we have the same right to respect and understanding that we, without question, give to others? I have often wondered about that …

  2. Absolutely beautiful thoughts, Trini! We were all created with our own uniqueness and beauty which is something we should be proud of and yes, respectful of others and who they are. Thank you for sharing your thoughts 😊

  3. So easy to judge others.
    But once we understand that we are all unique and beautiful, we start seeing the world throught different lenses. And we can start building it with love for one another.
    ❤️ 🙏🏽

  4. Judgement comes from those that don’t understand. But how can we understand everything? We can’t.
    But, we most certainly can accept ourselves, and in doing so realise that we are all different, all going through many different emotions and paths to find ourselves. And that’s ok too.
    Great post beautiful empath, and if that is your bench it is most certainly sharing its owners ‘being’ 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🦘 🐬 🐳 🌺 🌹 🌈
