How to use your sensitivity as a super power (& navigate it)

Hi! I am Cybele (sa-bell) - I would describe myself first as a highly sensitive person, or HSP. I have created a community just for us on IG @cybele.safadi I’ve always been told that I’m “too sensitive” and to just “get over it.” As a kid, I used to cry whenever a friend of mine wasn’t able to come over and play. Not even in a bratty way— I just missed them so much, and was so excited to see them. Ever felt so overwhelmed that you just had to burst?I feel deeply. Not be choice, but by chance and some damn good genes. My inner world is rich.I no longer want to feel shame around that. The shame from childhood carries over into adulthood- only getting worse when you begin working for companies or bosses that will perceive you or label you as “weak.”Doesn’t emotion shape all of our decisions, even the business focused ones?Don’t worry, I’m not going to cry in front of you if you tear down my ideas in a meeting.I’ll just cry amongst my loved ones like any strong person. 🤪I’m responsible for my emotions. And so I’m learning how to express, process and direct them. Don’t feel bad for me, I got this! Highly sensitive doesn’t mean reckless, unhinged, or dramatic. If you are a HSP, or work, live or love one, this would be the place for you to learn more about them. If you are someone who scoffs at anyone who displays any kind of emotion... this may be the place for you to learn too. Really excited in creating this space and having you follow my journey. I hope we can all share our experiences and support one another.
