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…)

Don’t Let Other People Define You!

Highly sensitive people and introverts often grow up feeling “different.” We struggle to fit in, adapting as much as we can, though those isolating feelings rarely go away completely. With that in mind, I wanted to share an uplifting story I came across about a young woman who wasn’t afraid of being different and sought to challenge stereotypes rather than conform to the expectations of other people.

Santina Muha is a Rutgers University alumna, writer, fashion model, public speaker, actress, comedienne, and internet personality. I almost forgot to mention that she is also a T-11 paraplegic. In March of 1989, when Santina was 5 years old, she was in a car accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down with a spinal cord injury. She says that many people are not able to see past her disability, a perception she is determined to change. (more…)

It’s never too late to follow your dreams!

I get correspondence and see comments from highly sensitive people and introverts of all ages lamenting that it’s too late to do something meaningful in their lives. As a 69-year-old highly sensitive person and introvert, I can definitely say that this isn’t true! I feel that my best years are yet to come! I’m excited about the prospect of writing much more information about HSPs and introverts. It’s important to have passion and something to look forward to.

I read an inspirational article about a woman who got her high school diploma at the age of 98! Ida Ruth Hayes Greene always regretted not having graduated from high school. She felt that something was missing in her life and decided to remedy that. She was not about to let her age get in the way! (more…)

Was Julia Child A Highly Sensitive Person?

I recently watched the movie, Julie and Julia, a 2009 film that depicts events in the life of chef Julia Child. This movie inspired me to draw parallels between her life and my own. I’m not sure if Julia Child was highly sensitive or not, but she’s a great example for HSPs to emulate and admire.

Julia Child was a genuine person who had an exuberance for life. She was extremely confident and enjoyed wonderful, profound relationships with her husband and friends. She had a passion for food and was able to craft a successful career around her passion. (more…)
