When and how did you become aware that you're an HSP? How did you learn about our group?

I have been aware of being sensitive all my life and have known that I somehow don't fit into the norm in this world. Only recently have I become aware of how many other people struggle with this. I believe I stumbled upon this group in an HSP forum.

Have you read any of Elaine Aron's books about the HSP trait? Which ones?

Yes, The Highly Sensitive Person and The Highly Sensitive Person in Love.

Please tell us a bit about how being Highly Sensitive affects your life. We honestly aren't trying to be nosy. But because we're set up as a "real life" social group, it is helpful for members to share something about themselves when they join.

In many ways, from deeply feeling emotions to being highly reactive to different foods. Being an HSP affects all aspects of my life. I do cherish that my deep emotions have really informed me what I am passionate about and where to focus my time.

In addition to our monthly discussion meetings, what other activities would you like to see offered?

I like to hike and camp. I also like long walks and the great talks that can ensue on these adventures.

What do you hope to get from your membership in our HSP meetup? (i.e. friendship, activity partners, support, networking, etc)

The joy of just listening to other HSP's and hearing the creative ways each person has learned how to navigate life.

Introduction

I recently moved to Seattle and I am looking for a group of HSPs so I can grow in understanding about this trait.
