What we're about
This meetup is for people who identify as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Existing evidence suggests that the majority of HSPs are:
- Highly empathetic.
- Moved by the arts.
- Excellent listeners.
- Easily overwhelmed.
Personally, I identify with all of the above. You might identify with some, or perhaps you identify with other characteristics which I have forgotten for now (sorry!). Anyway, I have decided to create a Meetup for people who identify as a HSP because it is very hard to find other HSPs.
I have no experience of creating and organising Meetups and, frankly, it's a little daunting. I'd love for other people to join and for some people to help with the organisation of this group. I have a few ideas for group activities, such as visiting museums and art galleries, hiking, attending local arts events, meditation nights and just meetups where we can chat and support each other. I would love for people to come up with other ideas, too.
For people who are not sure if they are a Highly Sensitive Person, you might find this website helpful: https://hsperson.com/
On this site, you can find more information and books that explain HSPs in more detail. You can also complete self tests on there to help determine if you are a HSP.
Anyway, I'd love to hear from you guys.
