    I find that this experience is very real. After attending an HSP gathering and experiencing a very natural safe scape this year I have been looking for the words to express how I felt when I got back home and all the magic was fleating. “FearScape” #donewelldonethankyoucheers

    I would much prefer the title of this article to be: “Scapes of Fear For Those Who Worry Too Much” because as we know it is not only the “emotionally sensitive” who may or may not have unfounded fears. Take the 6 on the Enneagram for instance — totally fear based …
    It seems there are a plethora of articles lately on the “emotionally sensitive” or the “highly sensitive person” these days which tend to paint us into sad, unempowered, depressed, anxious or fearful states. There are many, many benefits to being “emotionally or highly sensitive” and we are not all fear-based, anxious or depressed. Those HSPs who are empowered have learned that in many cases, it is not US, but the environment which is dysfunctional and we are wise to NOT adapt to it. Thanks for listening …

      I often wished that I was not a highly sensitive person because it causes me to suffer. When I was younger I thought I may experience the highs and the lows in life more vividly that one who is not so sensitive. It would be ok for the highs but not the lows.

      You have said that there are many benefits to being “emotionally or highly sensitive” could you tell me the benefits-since lately I have been concentrating on only the negatives.. Thanks for your comments.
