Top 5 Tips for Highly Sensitive Persons and Love
Being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) in a relationship with a non-HSP
has its challenges - and its gifts.
1) Recognize and Acknowledge that your sensitivities are unique.
Release any expectations or hopes that your partner can/will feel the same things that you do.
He/She may learn to understand your sensitivities and support you; and he won't feel things
as deeply as you. Letting go of expectations creates freedom and space in your relationship
for both of you to show up as your Authentic Selves.
2) Learn to take really
good care of YOU!
How does this fit into tips about relationships?
Before you can ask someone else to
support you, you need to what kind of support
you need. Learn what works for you -
what routines, ritual, habits help you be your
Best Self. For example, HSPs typically need 8-9
hours of sleep a night, down-time on a regular
basis, and plenty of alone time to recharge.
3) Be willing to stretch outside your
comfort zone, a little bit at a time.
One of the gifts of being with a non-HSP is
the opportunity to strengthen your
social 'muscles'. Most likely your non-HSP
likes to go out and socialize more than you
Pick an activity that is a bit of a stretch
for you, but not too much. Over time, your
'muscle' will get stronger and you'll get to
enjoy more of life!
4) Don't fall in love with potential.
HSPs are great at seeing beyond the surface
which means we're great at being visionaries
and seeing a person's true potential.
Problem is, we can fall for a person's
potential, and that
potential may or may not manifest this
lifetime! Focus on who the person is here
Love them for who they are.
5) Learn to say NO.
One of the toughest things for us sensitives
to do is to say no, especially to someone
we love. HSPs love to please and make people
happy. So we often say YES when we really
mean NO. You're not helping anyone when you
become overwhelmed, frazzled and fried,
because you've taken on too many activities
or aren't getting enough quiet 'recharge'
