Cliff’s Priority #3 Doing what I was meant to do.

One of my priorities is to discover and fulfill my ever-evolving life purpose. At this stage, I feel that my “mission” is to create useful and inspiring content for highly sensitive people. Drawing upon my personal experience as a HSP, I want to help others realize that high sensitivity, once you understand it, can be used to your advantage.

Are you thankful for your high sensitivity?

Unfortunately, many HSPs see their high sensitivity as more of a negative than a positive, but is it really? Has it ever occurred to you that high sensitivity is a gift, something to be grateful for, despite its challenges? As highly sensitive people, we deeply take in everything around us and are profoundly influenced by our environment, which bestows us with the gifts of creativity, observation, intuition, and compassion. We have the ability to experience intense joy on happy occasions. We are thoughtful and excellent problem solvers. We are curious and always seeking to know more. We are caring and intuitive, especially about the feelings of others, making us great parents, friends, spouses, sons, daughters, siblings, and co-workers. On the flip side, our high sensitivity…
