Highly Sensitive People, or HSPs are often people who feel a lot, give a lot, and struggle a lot as a result of this predisposition. Finding HSP Therapy in Asheville can be crucial to your finding the gifts of your sensitivity and the boundaries that will keep you safe.
There is also an overlap between HSPs and people-pleasers, or self-sacrificers. Since we feel so much, we can often pick up on what other people are feeling or needing. And since we don’t want anyone to suffer, we’ll often step in prevent others from feeling discomfort, to our own detriment.
I recently read the 1996 National Bestseller The Highly Sensitive Person: How To Survive When the World Overwhelms You by Elaine N. Aron, PhD. Although I had known that this book existed for several years, I had only recently made it a priority to read, and only wish that I had done so sooner!
As a Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, myself, I found Aron’s work to be both comforting and insightful, and I would highly recommend this accessible and informative book to people who suspect that they may be highly sensitive, love someone who is highly sensitive, or work in any healing capacity with the highly sensitive.
