If you are listening to this episode on its release date in late December of 2020, this past year has been a source of stress for all of us and we have had to choose. Choose to continue moving forward, taking one day at a time, giving ourselves grace, or to choose to hide and wait for things to return to normal. It can be easy as an Empath or HSP to get wrapped up in the everyday challenges we face due to our sensitivity. In this episode, I’m going to talk about some big strengths that we HSP’s and Empaths have, and how to avoid negative challenges that can potentially arise with these strengths.
