#HighlySensitivePeople: Do You Have Enough Alone Time?

Do you have enough alone time? A common theme among us highly sensitive people is that we enjoy being by ourselves. It allows us to have quiet time, which can sometimes be essential to re-charging our emotional and physical batteries and honing our creativity.
