Highly Sensitive People: Are Long-Lasting Quality Relationships Possible?

I'm happy to say that it's definitely possible! Today my wife and I are celebrating our 42nd Wedding Anniversary! You don't have to be married 42 years to have a loving, supportive, and satisfying relationship, but I want to emphasize that you can have the relationship that you desire. It's hard to believe how fast times goes by. Many wonderful things have happened, such as the birth of our daughter, the great family experiences, the joy we received from our many pets, and the personal triumphs that my wife and I had.

Highly Sensitive People: Where can you find other HSPs?

I got many comments about my post last week, about men posing with dogs, not theirs, to attract women under false pretentious. I’ve been asked how normal and honest highly sensitive people can meet for friendships, romance, or both! Can any of you relate to this dilemma?

An easy way to become more interesting is to have a hobby. Highly sensitive people/introverts are naturally curious and usually have a vast number of interests. What are you interested in?  Do you share your passions with others? Are you a collector?

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Do You Have Too Many “Should’s” In Your Life?

Do you have too many “shoulds” in your life? Do you find yourself and others saying to you….You should do this, or You should do that?

Why should you have to do anything? Shouldn’t you be free to do what you want and not be bound by what you and others think you should do?
