The Blessings + Curse of Being an HSP, Empath or Creative
Ever since I can remember, and way before I became familiar with term, I knew myself to be a Highly Sensitive Person.
Whether it was picking up on certain family dynamics as a toddler, how I felt when being teased in school, or experiencing deep levels of empathy for people who are hurting in my teens and early 20’s, my feelings were, and probably always will be, loud-and-present, no matter the situation.
The statement “I feel, therefore I am.” will always resonate more with me than “I think, therefore I am.” ever will or can.
And all this feeling, it’s a beautiful thing, except when it’s not.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being a feeling person. It helps me in so many ways that I can’t even imagine not being how I am. But, as it is with everything, there is a down side to all these feelings.
Being such a feeling person has caused me to leave jobs, stay in bad relationships, and make otherwise less-than-beneficial choices, all to appease my emotional feedback system in the moment. Otherwise known as making a permeant choice from a temporary feeling, which usually did NOT lead me to my desired destination.
At this point, I don’t remember whether it was staying in that one particular “bad” relationship too long, or the one or two jobs that I left, where staying would have been in my best interest, but I finally had the epiphany that if I wanted to realize my dreams, I was going to have to figure out how to deal with all these big emotions.
Lucky for me, along my life’s journey, I came across, or attracted quite a few Empaths, HSP’s, Creatives, and Intuitives, which I now know all showed up as messengers to help me better understand me.
And now, it’s my turn to pay it forward. So in today’s episode of #AskMysMorgan, I share some powerful insights into understanding your sensitive nature, along with 3 techniques to get grounded, so you can be empowered to make the best decisions for your life, instead of settling for what will turn your feelings down in the moment.
Now I’d love to hear from you…
