We HSP’s are perfectly NORMAL – it’s just the other 80-85 % of the population…
The truth is nobody is wrong.
This is NOT about winning anything or playing the “blame game” of making anyone right or wrong for being who they naturally are. It is about acceptance of sensitive, insensitive (who are usually simply ignorant/uneducated) and HSP’s all living in one world together.
Nobody is wrong just because they are NOT highly sensitive. It simply means they sense things on a lesser level than HSP’s who experience all of life on a more intense level not even of their own choosing any more than the natural born state of others is theirs.
For example, I am an HSP crashed into PTSD by abuse, betrayal and multiple barrages of losses that may have left another person standing without PTSD.
In my observation the internet is growing more and more INSENSITIVE by DESENSITIZING real world human connections reducing them to machines – deaths from brutal cyber bullying say it all better than I can.
Let’s stop this by making sure our time online really matters, really makes a positive difference to someone, somewhere. As an HSP I personally must have my relationships in the REAL world, nothing less will do, no machine existence for me, just cannot do it.
Libraries, writing world connections and long distance family are my reasons for staying online. I ask myself this: if we lose electricity or cell/text transmission, do we lose that person/connection?
If the answer is yes, THAT is not a real world relationship where I live and it is something I could clearly and, perhaps, even should live without. Just a thought.

This piece focuses on teens http://broadsideblog.wordpress.com/…/ but some fully grown adults gather in “bully mind” as well, some are bosses, co-workers, family or even friends who jump on the bandwagon just because they are friends with you and don’t step up to cite the wrong thinking of bully mindedness. Let’s change this, one word at a time, one world at a time so we don’t lose any more HSP’s out there to the misplaced aggressions and angers of others.
