—– I recently received a message from one of my readers that sparked my interest.– “My wife is (what she labels as) a “highly sensitive person” or HSP.

I write my articles before sunrise because it’s the darkest and quietest hour of the day.

I go to movies alone because I want to react to them at my own pace.

I go for walks with ear plugs in and sunglasses on to limit stimulation.

Maybe some of these types of behaviours sound familiar to you (in terms of your personal experience, or you recognize these traits in your highly sensitive partner).

Anything specific I should be aware of with her sensitivity?

How can I better engage with my highly sensitive partner?

” – First of all, let me say that I absolutely adore getting messages like these… It has been suggested that I’m an HSP, an empath, deeply introverted, and a number of other things (all of which have validity)… I get over-stimulated easily during every day activities.

messages that have the overarching subtext of “How do I love them even better? I can read someone’s thoughts and emotions from across the room just by watching their face.

Regardless, if you’re still reading, that means that you want to know how you can love your highly sensitive people better.

So what can you do to help your highly sensitive partner feel more loved and cared for?

Highly sensitive people tend to have rich inner worlds with a mass of swirling thoughts.
