What would the world be like if it were run by HSPs and Introverts?

This is a difficult question to research, since there probably aren’t many examples of HSPs and Introverts in political office. Think about it. How many of us would subject ourselves to the abuse one has to take in order to run for a major office?

Some spend a lifetime trying to figure out what they want to do, but many more will abandon the endeavor altogether. The idea of discovering your passion can seem like a daunting task, and it’s easy to be skeptical. We may believe it’s unrealistic to think we can support ourselves while doing something you love. Sure, there are exceptions, but that’s not the norm, we tell ourselves. Other excuses may be ‘It’s too late,’ or ‘I don’t have time.‘ Why not explore the possibilities of having your own business? (more…)

Do Highly Sensitive People Need to Find and Follow Their Passion?

How does your life make you feel? Do you wake each morning looking forward to the day ahead, or do you wish you could bury your head under the covers and stay there? Why not look for that something – a cause, hobby or career – that feels right and sparks joy within you?

“Passion requires focused direction, and that direction must come from three other areas: your purpose, your talents, and your needs.”…Steve Pavlina
