In case of hard times… (from one HSP to another)

In case of hard times… (from one HSP to another)

hard timesA friend said in a note that it’s been a rough week and she needs her HSP (highly sensitive person) community. I decided to be her HSP community for that moment and just send some love and hopefully a little stress relief.

Without knowing what her rough patch is about, I sent her the following note. Seeing the note for myself inspired me to share it with you, and to save it here for myself on the hard days:

Dear one,

In case it helps, here are some facts:

You are fabulous as you are, no matter what externals have happened.

You have built-in resilience, at a masterful level, more than you know.
You’ve been finding a way your whole life.

This too shall pass.

You are loved.
And so are all the people you are concerned about right now.

The world is truly a mess, and it always has been a messy place,
and Love Still Matters.

There are people who can listen and it often helps to share it.

P.S. How soon can you take a little breathing room? (Even 1 minute helps.)
