I like Pastor Joel's statement, "You can be powerful or pitiful, but you can't be both!"
It reminds me that self-pity is more addictive than cocaine, and we can break addiction!

Hello! Thanks for letting me join. I'm an HSP extrovert, as I recently discovered, so I'm still figuring myself out.

One of the things I want "more of" for 2016 is time to write. This is my first HSP related effort of the new year, looking at how we need to "let go" of old things that no longer serve our lives... and how that can be quite difficult for HSPs.
We are often told to "let things go." That may seem pretty simple, but there's a lot more to truly letting go of old behavior patterns than immediately meets the eye-- ESPECIALLY if you're an HSP

I'm a self-employed HSP... as such, one of the HARDEST parts of being in business for myself is "self promotion." Seems to me this holds true for more than a few of my peers... but if we don't self-promote, how do people even KNOW our "thing" exists? It's a bit dichotomous for me... I'm not too troubled by sharing my blog posts, but it's very hard for me to promote my art, which I actually sell for MONEY. Both are... "self expression,"--- but why is one OK, and not the other?

This blog post is about HSPs and self-promotion, and it's even a little self-promotional in the sense that... well, I'm going to be on the radio, talking not just about "being an HSP" but also about my creativity... stepping outside my comfort zone.
"Self-Promotion." Many HSPs-- whether self-employed or otherwise-- struggle with the concept of promoting themselves. For a large number of reasons, we find the idea of "tooting our own horns" distasteful, in some ways. Ela...

Individuals struggling with mental illness are welcomed into the homes of any townsfolk of Geel, Belgium.

No one actually uses the phrase "mentally ill."
The preferred term is "boarders," although people are also known to refer to these guests (at worst) as "special" or "different."

While the host families do receive a stipend for their care (about $730/month), they are not provided with any background information or clinical diagnoses. This helps cut down on stigmas against people with mental illnesses as being sick or scary or dangerous. If a boarder requires medication or other treatment, the local hospitals will handle it outside the home.

Quite simply, boarders come to Geel when they've had difficulty coping on their own and have no one else to help them. Whatever reason, condition, or situation brought them there is irrelevant.

#MentalIllness


It might sound like a horror film, but they've used this radical treatment since the 13th century — and there's nothing scary about it.

Thank you all. It turns out that she is turning to Jesus once again as she did when a child. She even bought her own Bible and prays daily and goes to church etc. We are very grateful.

It's a new year-- Happy New Year to everyone!

I don't really "do" new year's resolutions because I don't like setting myself up to fail and then feeling bad because something that was intentioned to make things BETTER didn't come about.

That said, I do like to think in terms of what I want the year to "mean" and what I would like "more of" and what I would like "less of." What about YOU? Do you use the turning of the year as a starting/finishing point for things in your life?

I feel the same way, it's just part of nature as HSP

As a highly sensitive person (HSP), empath or introvert we feel and process things on a much deeper level. This can be a gift and a curse if you don’t really know how to manage all of those intensive things that are on the inside. To help you make sense of your sensitivity and emotions, today I’ll be talking with the woman who is driven by showing others to make purposeful decisions that are right just for them, Ani Owo​

In today#s episode we talk about:

- What to do when you feel overwhelmed
- How to manage the emotions and energy of other people
- How to show up from a place o service when you go into entrepreneurship
- How self-sabotage and procrastination can show up in our life and business
- How can we embrace our sensitivity so that we can thrive in our business
- And much more…

In this episode, you will learn how you can move from overwhelm to being in service to others, and embracing your sensitivity so it becomes your super power

"Consciousness" is an interesting ideal... but what it is REALLY? HSPs typically spend a lot of time in introspection, but how well do our inner journeys manifest in terms of "outer functionality" in our lives? Consciousness is more than just "something inside our heads." This latest blog post pokes at the edges of Consciousness, and also makes a (rare, for me!) book recommendation that may be remarkably helpful for the Highly Sensitive Person. 
Recently, I have been spending a lot of time considering the whole "Consciousness" issue. No, I don't mean "consciousness" as in what happens in the morning when you wake up after a night of heavy drinking... I mean conscious...

Thanks for the reading suggestion. I hope to add that to my list of reads for Christmas break. I have several reads on the nature of consciousness.  This was one of my big areas of research for my senior thesis in philosophy (I was working on the problem of consciousness as related to philosophy of AI)

Hello all.

I don't know if any of you have ever heard of Enneagram Personality test or not. It's really a great tool and very accurate. I'm wondering what type of personality the people in this group are. This is just for me as I'm curious to find out whether INFP and INFJ people would fall under the type 2, 4 and 5 category. If you're interested, take the test and comment.

I'm a type 4. Below is the link:

The test says I'm a 9 (but got nearly as high results in 5, 4 and 1).. I'm ISTJ and INFJ - really, both fits almost perfectly... ISTJ fits better in my work at the moment though.
