HSP - Highly Sensitive Person. This term awakens a lot of emotion in me, and it has changed the way I view my sensitivity. Growing up, it hasn't been very accepted by society in general to be sensitive. Common comments would be "you have to toughen up" and even "in the real world you will break down". The modern life world is built upon this toughness. After I got familiar with this term, and read both research and literature about it, I realized that it is a gift to have the sensors outside of the body. I embrace emotion in all forms.
