Our abilities to notice the subtleties that others miss, and think deeply about things, gives us a huge advantage.

These are gifts that we can bring to enrich our own lives and the lives of those around us. We’re the first to notice when someone wants to say something in a meeting but feels intimidated, the first to pick up on our child’s sad mood just from the set of their shoulders when they walk through the school gate at the end of the day.

Highly Sensitive People tend to be the Advisors, Healers, and Teachers in society. Our traits needn’t be confined to the people and situations directly around us. You only have to google ‘famous Highly Sensitive People’ to see that the world has been shaped for the better by many HSPs..(Albert Einstein, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa).
