Highly Sensitive People (HSPs)


You may have noticed that I have been posting quite a bit, both here and on my Facebook Page, about Highly Sensitive People or HSPs.  That’s because every person with BPD is an HSP, but not every HSP has BPD.  It is believed that BPD is caused by a HSP being brought up in an invalidating environment.

Dr. Elaine Aron has a test on her website to see if you are a HSP.  You can take the test here:  http://www.hsperson.com/test/  Dr. Aron has researched the trait of High Sensitivity and has even written a book on it called The Highly Sensitive Person.  She is currently trying to get funding for a documentary on High Sensitivity called Sensitive.  (Please see these posts:  https://makebpdstigmafree.wordpress.com/2014/09/03/sensitive-the-untold-story-on-vimeo/ and https://makebpdstigmafree.wordpress.com/2014/09/02/sensitive-the-untold-story/ )

How Positive Thinking Can Be a Crock


Write into the Light

On a path to clearer views, I find myself looking up and realizing that life is nothing more than an illusion of what my mind (ego) tells me it is.

I am baffled by people who are always up-beat and positive; who love life even when things are tough; who see the good in even the most painful events.

I am writing this post and my husband, who is in the other room, just started taping up some boxes he needs to mail. Now, all I can pay attention to is the god-awful screeching sound of the tape being pulled from the tape-gun as he wraps it around the damn boxes! Like nails on a chalk board, I tell ya!

ok, I think he is finished. Like I was saying, my reality is nothing more than what my mind tells me it is. Let’s look at my outburst about the…

An excellent blog at Psychology Today.

A beautiful quote from Pearl Buck:

The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create—so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.

ESP… Extra Sensory Perception

HSP Highly Sensitive Person

HSP’s have more awareness or a heightened sensitivity  to their environments. They receive and process more information than average people on what surrounds them. They are  just more in tune with things, more aware. Even to the point that they become overloaded with it. HSP’s are not rare, they make up 15%  to 20% of the population. Are you one? An HSP will process sensory data with more depth, with a thoroughness, there is a difference in their nervous system that gives them this ability, or curse.  (more on this soon)

ESP, People that receive information that doesn’t fit in the normal 5 senses. They feel others emotions, feel energy or auras that may surround people, they may feel…
