Highly Sensitive Empaths
Highly Sensitive Empaths
The concept of the Highly Sensitive Empath (HSE) changed my life. Once I realized that this was my personality type it allowed me to stop trying to change who I was (because that wasn’t working) and instead use what I had to my advantage. HSEs are a unique personality type because of the physiology of their bodies – they require a different way of being and relating in the world.
An HSE narrows Elaine Aron’s “Highly Sensitive Person” concept, to focus on people who are also affected by other’s emotions and the environment around them. Not all highly sensitive people are empathic.
What is a Highly Sensitive Empath?
Nature is especially important for HSEs
The Highly Sensitive Empath (HSE) is a personality type that is connected to your sympathetic nervous system. This means that HSEs are receiving and processing more information than the average person. This can make us feel like we’re really different from anyone around us (like a tree in a lake).
