Do you know the following situation? You are unhappy and you are quite clear about which kind of life you would make you happier, you would like to change, but sometimes you have some minor doubts about your intention as your ideal life seems so different to other people’s lives. So in moments of doubts you call your family – maybe your mom, your father, your sister or your brother or your friends – and your ask them for advice and you follow their advice instead of realizing your dreams.
If you’re highly sensitive chances are that you are easily influenced by other people. The majority of people who want to change their life never really succeed in their project because they get influenced by other people. Especially when you were raised by controlling and dominant parents your brain is programmed to rather listen to others then to yourself. Highly sensitive and creative people get easily overwhelmed by other peoples’ thoughts, energy and emotions.
The problem is most of the highly sensitive and creative people they still do the same they did when they were are child. They listen to the opinions of other people. Most of the people around us such as our friends or family don’t know what is best for us. They are unable to put themselves in the shoes of other people.
Maybe you are quite clear about which kind of life you would like to live, but sometimes you have some minor doubts as your life seems so different to other people’s lives. You might lack some self-confidence and have a low self-esteem so in moments of doubts you call your family – maybe your mom, your father, your sister or your brother or your friends – and your ask them for advice. And they give you advice and you listen to this advice. The problem is: most of the time what they tell us is not adapted to our personality and needs.
Many highly sensitive and creative people fail in the project of creating a different happy healthy and successful life because they don’t know themselves neither their needs nor their values. They don’t know how to protect against other people’s thoughts, opinions, emotions, energy. They don’t know how to listen to their gut feelings, their intuition. They have no guidance, no strategy, no plan. They are completely lost.
