7 Highly Sensitive People

Being an HSP (highly sensitive person) can be magical and exhausting at the same time.  In this episode of Sparkles Podcast, Boonie and Rachel discuss what being an HSP is like, and they explore questions such as: Can I be an extroverted HSP? If I’m hangry all the time, does that mean I’m an HSP? If I’m an HSP, does that mean I’ll have to face a life of loneliness? Check it out and let us know if you have any thoughts or questions about HSP life.
 
Quotes
“It’s a lot of work to build that boundary of not taking (things) personally.”
 “Our sensitivity does not have anything to do with other people. It’s not their fault, it’s not that we don’t like them – it’s that our brains are built differently.”
Emotional intelligence is a real thing, and … that’s what companies look for — leaders need to have emotional intelligence.”
