Have you ever been told you’re “too sensitive”?
Does your sensitivity feel like a flaw?
Has it held you back in some way?
Boy have I been there.
I get you and I want you to know you are not alone.
I created this site for people who have been told they are “too sensitive”.
If that’s you, thank you for being here.
I applaud you.
For as long as I can remember, my hyper-sensitivity has been a running theme in my life.
I heard things like…
“You’re too sensitive”
“Don’t be so emotional”
“Don’t take things so personal”
Each time this would happen, I would own it like a character flaw. I tried to hide my sensitivity but I couldn’t.
Does any of this remind you of yourself — or someone close to you? If so, you’re not crazy, weak or “too sensitive.” You are not broken and there is nothing wrong with you.
You are a sensitive soul, a Highly Sensitive Person. (HSP)
I’m here to tell you…
Be who you are and make no apologies.
We sensitive types live in a world of people who don’t necessarily understand or appreciate our strong feelings. They just don’t get it.
When you are told “don’t be so sensitive”, it eats away at your self-esteem. Self-doubt sets in and you take a step back from living the life you truly want.
That is not fair to you.
That’s where I can help. I teach HSP how to adapt to a world that isn’t filled with equally sensitive people without giving up who they really are. That’s right, you don’t need to toughen up, let anything go or stop being so sensitive.
How would your life change if you celebrated your sensitivity?
I’m here to help you recognize sensitivity is part of your genius make-up.
This trait is not a new discovery, but it is commonly and unfairly misunderstood. Until you fully understand and honor your gift of sensitivity, it will feel like a curse not the blessing it was meant to be.
You know you are a highly sensitive person (HSP) if you:
•Feel easily overwhelmed by strong sensory input like bright lights, loud noises and strong smells
•You are keenly aware of even a subtle vibe in the room or if something feels ‘off’
•You can be easily affected by other people’s moods or negativity
•You cry easily from tv, movies or music and song lyrics, your emotions stir easily
•You need to withdraw during busy days to have some privacy and relief from everything around you
•You love your alone time and enjoy a rich, complex inner life
•You get overstimulated sometimes and feel so frazzled you just have to go off by yourself
•You are easily startled
•You feel more drained than others after spending time in public, large stores or running errands
•You have been told throughout your life by parents or teachers that you are shy
