Highly Sensitive People: Tissue Alert! A Touching Story: I Wish You Enough!

I recently read a story about a mother and daughter talking at the airport as the daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said:

“I love you, and I wish you enough.”

The daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom.” They kissed and the daughter left. (more…)

Highly Sensitive People: Are You Too Cynical?

I’m becoming more cynical than ever before. This is frustrating because I’m normally a positive, idealistic person. I try to look for the good in people and on the bright side of life in general.

I hate feeling so negative! I think that I’m reading too many newspapers, watching too much television, and being on the internet more than I need to.

Highly Sensitive People: Can You Give An Example Of An “Empowered” Highly Sensitive Person?

I was asked recently to provide an example of an empowered highly sensitive person who has overcome difficulty and has been able to live a good and productive life.

We need all the role models we can get!” 

I thought this was a great idea! I asked myself…Why can’t I give myself as an example? I’m on the high side of being highly sensitive. I’ve overcome many difficult times in my life and have been living a good and productive life. Why not me? I was apprehensive at first because we highly sensitive people don’t like to “brag” about ourselves. On further thought, I realized that it’s important to have role models that can inspire others to live their best lives. That’s what my passion and writing is all about!

I’d like to share a personal story about one of the most difficult times in my life. I made a real estate investment many years ago. I took out a loan for a building with the intention that this investment would make my life easier in the future. It didn’t! (more…)
