I’m a highly sensitive person that has many introverted characteristics. Social anxiety has always been a challenge for me. I went above my comfort zone when I facilitated over 40 HSP Meetup Groups through in- person meetings and teleconferences.
I had grown as a person by doing this. I learned that with some preparation and not being afraid to do something scary, that I could do something that I had a passion to do.
You can develop more courage when you learn more about yourself. You can do this by trying different things that you’re interested in, by reading, going to seminars, joining in-person groups, participating in online groups where you can meet other people who share your interests, and talking to like-minded people.
I facilitated a Meetup telephone conference about 10 years ago that dealt with this subject. My purpose was to bring other HSPs together in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental atmosphere. We shared our thoughts and this helped us understand our high sensitivity better. Here’s the link to the teleconference: Being Your HSP Self.
In order to get the most out of this 1 hour and 30 minute recording, I would suggest that you listen to it in a relaxed setting. We covered many interesting points about this subject, so you might want to take some notes.
Do you have the courage to be your true self? If not, why not? What can you do to understand yourself better? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
