10 Signs You’re A ‘Highly Sensitive Person’ (HSP)

Signs You're A Highly Sensitive Person

9. You like your alone time

For the most part, you prefer staying home with your cats and dogs and a good book rather than going out for entertainment.

Most highly sensitive people feel very nourished by their pets and don’t feel the need to go out and search for connections.

A soul mate may be welcome, as long as you feel met in a deep, fulfilling way. Feeling connected on a deep level is non-negotiable.

10. You feel weird or different like you don’t fit in

Well, maybe there is some truth to that — but not in a negative way.

The word “weird” stems from the Anglo-Saxon word wyrd. It roughly corresponds to fate or personal destiny or the power to control fate.

My suggestion to all highly sensitive people: Be wyrd, because it’s your destiny.

It just means you are different from the crowds and that you’re meant to be.

How wonderful that being a sensitive, “wyrd” person is your divine destiny. It was never your destiny to fit into a world too far from your natural reality.

Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods

Over my own lifetime, I’ve had to learn — yes learn — to be myself, to be OK with being different and weird, and embrace my sensitivities as a wonderful, needed gift in this world.

Being different does not mean there’s anything wrong with you. It just means you’re different — and let me tell you — you aren’t alone in your sensitivity.

There is a rising tide of sensitive people who are rising to the occasion that the world is calling for: Your sensitivity is needed, dear one. Your time has come to help lift the insensitive, heavy, and unconscious frequencies into the new paradigm.

It’s not a mistake that you’re sensitive, feel everything, feel everybody, just “know” things, can’t relate to others, find no interest in the mundane activities in the world, or feel a little lost.

Maybe you’re going through what feels like you are shedding a skin that was never yours — and you feel a little naked, standing out like that.

This is all part of the transition you’re going through as you embrace your finer energies and learn to play the field in a new way.

Your energies and frequencies were never meant to fit into this world. They were meant to uplift this world to match your higher sensitivities.

Blessedly you are not alone anymore.

Reach out, speak up, connect and let your voice be heard amongst other like-hearted sensitive souls so we can support, acknowledge, celebrate, and encourage each other to shine your light onto this world together.
