HSPs and Intense Emotions
Raise your hand if you associate sensitivity with weakness? You aren’t alone. Many of us were taught that being sensitive is a negative thing, but in actuality there are many advantages to having a highly sensitive brain. One of those advantages is that we Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) feel our emotions more intensely than non-sensitive people.
You might be thinking ... and how exactly is that a good thing? It’s a good thing because
strong emotional responses can provide us with important information IF we know how to be with and process our intense emotions, instead of becoming overwhelmed by them.
