My life as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)
This blog is about my life as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) – how I survive the challenges of everyday life and the ups and downs of being much more sensitive than the average person.
Whether you are a HSP or non-HSP, I hope that you enjoy my stories and that they help you on your journey of high sensitivity or understanding other peoples’ high sensitivity.
How lockdown has taught me the joy of solitude
As I write this article, the city in which I currently live – Melbourne, Australia – is still in a Stage 4 lockdown. It has generally been a frustrating, depressing and lonely time. Each day feels like Groundhog Day, as I wake up each morning and sit in front of my computer for another day of videoconference calls and endless tasks. Sometimes I am very productive and complete my work efficiently but at other times, it all feels like too much of an effort.
