A HSP Journal Activity
Uncovering, Admiring Your (Our) HSP Strengths

Using the Rules of Journal Writing found here, I hope you will take a few quiet moments to reflect on some of the many positive aspects of our trait of high sensitivity.

Some of us may not think our trait has much to offer; however, I encourage you to think of the last time you either consciously or unconsciously found yourself sharing these attributes with yourself or others.

What form did the trait take in the outer world -- maybe "behind the scenes?" Did
you create a new way to do something? Create a more inclusive environment for your family, friends or workplace? Provide comfort, clarity or support to someone in need?
