Of course Highly Sensitive People can (and do!) live long, healthy and fulfilling lives. You can thrive in your High Sensitivity, making the most of your sensitive gifts rather than allowing them to be the cause of overwhelm and ill-health.
As a Highly Sensitive Woman myself, I’ve had to take a long close look at how I live my life and at the things that increase or deplete my precious energy. I’ve learnt to listen to my body and act on the signals it gives me, rather than sticking my head in the sand and hoping for the best.
Putting my needs first doesn’t mean that I neglect my family, in fact it means I have more energy for them and am generally a kinder, happier person to be around. I’ve managed to replace the constant feeling of overwhelm with joy & gratitude!
