Do HSPs Need Permission to be Emotional?

Published on: 29th September, 2021

I read article about HSPs and happiness and the author stated that HSPs need "permission to get emotional and have a good cry."

As Highly Sensitive People we already often feel powerless to process all the emotions, sensations, thoughts and  sensibilities that are pulsing through our bodies, hearts and minds day and night. All the while we’re trying to self-regulate all of these things as we navigate the expectations of others and cultural norms that consistently reprimand us when we can’t push all of our sensitivities down any more until they finally break through the surface. 

In this episode we’re chatting about feeling the need for permission or approval as HSPs to express our feelings and emotions.
