I am a HSP
HSP. Not quite sure what that means? Before today, I didn't either. I wasn't particularly seeking out this information either, but have you ever accidentally stumbled upon something that perfectly describes you?
The way I came about the term HSP was by typing hyper-empathetic into the Google machine. Why would one search hyper-empathy you might ask? Well let me ask you a few questions to help make you understand. When someone tells you a story, do you automatically understand their perspective and how they felt? Regardless of how many times you've seen a movie do you automatically cry at the sad parts because you can relate to what the characters are going through? When reading a book have you ever noticed your own emotional state being affected by the books plot. Do you find yourself being perceptively in-tune to the changes in your environment? Do you feel like your emotionally over-reactive to the things that go on around you? Have you ever been told you're overly emotional?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions you too might be a HSP. Now if my vagueness hasn't driven you crazy to the point where you've already Googled HSP yourself, it stands for highly sensitive person. No, this doesn't mean that we are a people who will burst into tears because you 'looked at us the wrong way," but we might come up with a million scenarios for why you might have done that (several of which probably involve us as the cause of the issue).
Prior to tonight, I had never had any literature that describe certain aspects of my personality. I've come to conclusions and accepted quirks, but as with anything it is nice to have some actual scientific evidence behind my speculations. I even took the time to take a test just in case this was one of those situations where I got excited about something and jumped to conclusions.
Reader, if you're concerned with how certain I am about something after only being knowledgeable about it for a couple of hours; 1. You're very justified in that opinion and 2. Left me share some facts with you about this personality type that I identify with.
Well reader, I hope you kept an open mind and maybe learned something today. Knowledge is power and I hope that with what I gained from today can help me continue trying to live my best life. Knowing my downfalls and shortcomings is just the beginning to trying to conquer them. After all the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
Reader we come to another closing. As always thank you for your time. You are appreciated and don't forget to make someone smile today. :)
Until next time!
