What is Emotional Hunger?

Published on: 21st July, 2021

Do you struggle with boundaries? Or feel like you have an empty space inside that doesn’t ever quite get filled?

Have people told you that you need too much attention or reassurance? Is it easy for you to jump to the worst conclusions about a situation? Do your thoughts start to spiral into a loop of anxiety and overwhelm?

For the longest time I minimized what was happening to me telling myself that I must care about everyone else more than they cared about me. But as time went on I started to wonder why this empty space inside of me was never filled and why I couldn't seem to find peace and security in my relationships.

As HSPs, it's painful when the love, affection, and emotional investment we make in others doesn't seem to be reciprocated to the same degree.

Does this mean that we’re more emotionally hungry than other people?

If you find that you're struggling please reach out for help.
