Community description:Sensitivity, HSP & Empathy
This community is all about learning that you are okay just the way you are. You are not too sensitive. Here you can share your sensitivities - whether it's empathy, having a sensitive nervous system, being HSP, feeling sensory overload, and anything related to this.

There will be passages from books posted, with helpful ideas and tips for ways to cope within an overstimulating world. Ask questions, share concerns and joys.

Are you a highly sensitive person? If so, this community is for you.

* Find out what it means to be a highly sensitive person
* Take the self-examination quiz and find out whether you are highly sensitive
* Discover how to manage distractions like noise and time pressure at home and at work
* Identify your specific sensitivities with self-assessment tests
* Reframe past experiences in a more positive light
* Interpret dreams and relate them to your sensitivity
* Cope with overarousal through relaxation, breathing, and visualization techniques
* Describe your trait in a work interview or to an unsympathetic family member, new friend, doctor, or therapist
