Hi, I'm Yuki living in Japan. I have a boyfriend who is HSP. He was abused by his parents since he was a boy, bullied in his school days, had trouble getting along with people at his work place, so he is extremely exhausted of his life. He went to the various hospitals, therapy in Japan, but the symptom does not improve at all. Actually there aren't expert in HSP in Japan so therapist cannot give him some appropriate advice. The understanding of HSP is not yet pervasive in japan so he is tired to cloak himself. Also he is getting sick because of unhealthful air pollution and foods in Japan. I'd be really grateful if you know any places, nursing homes, communities or therapists with the understanding in HSP that can accept him.
I would appreciate any suggestions or information.

Could you please help us? I really want to help him ..

+Mia Mantri I totally agree. He needs someone who can hear his feeling out empathetically. He doesn't have a Facebook account but I have, please search "Yuki Miyashita" my profile pic is orange signboard. I'd be really happy if you could introduce these!

I have a friend who recently went through a devastating loss. People in this world can be so cruel and make one move that devastates hundreds or even thousands of people. I have been through an unexpected loss too, and it really stinks. This picture is the perfect way I would describe grief. It never leaves you, but changes form, it becomes part of you. There is no end, it just ends up changing a part of your being. #grief #life #partoflife #love

I recently translated Ilse Sand's book about being highly sensitive into English. For me her book was helpful because it looks at how to navigate things I find tricky such as social situations, strong emotions and guilt and shame.

Love this Ted Talk. She explains HSP's beautifully. "Most HSPs have a genuine urge to create connection and meaning." How many of you can identify with this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi4JOlMSWjo

Lovely explanation of what HSP is. It so much resonates with me. I have tears as I listen to her.

The daily pain of having extreme perception

http://flip.it/FrXSP
When a gentle glow feels like a spotlight and everyday sounds hurt your ears, life can get anxious and painful. But there may be an upside to being a highly sensitive person.

I was initially bothered by this article as its preview text says HSP but initial part of the article talks exclusively about SPD. But then I noticed somewhere in the middle it discusses how researchers like Dr. Aron do not believe it is the same thing. Net net for a mainstream publication I count this as progress. :)

'Pleasure-progress' leads to extremes and addictions. Our tolerance for pleasure builds so that we need more alcohol to get drunk, more food to feel full, more social media to feel liked, more clothes to feel beautiful.

'Enjoyment-progress' leads to challenges, growth, and great personal development. It is not about feeling satiated, it is about moving forwards and enriching our lives.

Pleasure is by nature a pleasant experience (even if the longer term consequences aren't so), but enjoyment can actually be extremely stressful at times.

Does anyone else tend to 'precrastinate'? Definitely not something I would have thought applicable to HSPs until I actually thought about it!

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.

My life is pretty crazy right now. Although, for the most part, it is in a good way, I'm more stressed than I've been in a few years. On top of all the crazy, I'm an empath/HSP and I feel many of the emotions of those around me. I had ran across this from a previous post and wondered if any of you all are going through anything similar with the mercury retrograde just around the corner. Can you relate?I would love to hear your thoughts and comments. Sending positive vibes to all. 💜
 
So true.

I've always wanted Moby to do something like this. There have been hints at it on all his albums but never as much as I'd like. Such great news!

+Lindy Madsen I don't know about +Marc Neijenhuis's answer to this. But to me what Kyle is speaking about is Mindset.

I believe many common HSP fears are made more intense by our trait, but they are not caused by our trait.They are actually caused by our mindset which is what Kyle Cease is really talking about here.

I actually just wrote about mindset as it relates to a HS Entrepreneurs' fear of rejection as a guest post on Douglas Eby's blog here: http://goo.gl/z4Zqp6

It explains in more detail what I mean by this. Would love your thoughts.
