A year ago since I’ve got a book about HSP (highly sensitive person). My mom knew I was more sensitive than the others my whole life but I just thought I was a drama queen who couldn’t shut up about my feelings. I thought I was a mess and that everybody were sick of me crying.
I read this book and I felt less alone, less drama queen and more like I had other needs than “normal” people. Bringing a word to my personality type made my life easier. Now I know my personality better, my body and my soul. I don’t hate that I cry, that’s me, but I can make myself avoid the worst feelings.
The book is called “don’t drown in your feelings” and it saved me from disliking myself.
