How do you feel when your family grumbles at you because your sensitive feelings have surfaced once again?
How does your body react when a friend rants at you? You know the feeling. You can’t understand what they are saying because your nervous system is overwhelmed. It’s hard to think clearly. It’s like a valve shuts off in your brain.
What do you do when a family member blasts you because you confronted him for kicking the dog?
Welcome to the highly sensitive person’s Achilles heel: criticism and anger.
Highly sensitive people often feel intimidated in the face of anger. We try to be understanding. But when people dump on us, we feel flooded. Our nervous systems freeze up or we explode.
Neither is a position of empowerment. Nor is it the highest expression of love for others or self-love. But when we feel threatened, our natural human reaction is to go into fight or flight or freeze or faint.
Highly Sensitive People have a conscience, and we feel bad when we don’t behave in healthy ways. Our pain motivates us to learn better ways. That’s a good thing … we want to learn from our mistakes.
In this webinar, we’ll explore how to:
• stop cowering or exploding
• remain centered when someone is angry with us
• identify what we’re feeling and manage our intense reactions
• help our loved ones understand us
• ask for other’s support to help us
• stop feeling rejected when people dump their frustration on us
• energetically protect ourselves
• assert ourselves, e.g., respect others and respect ourselves equally
• build our self-esteem
• identify and strengthen our HSP gifts.
WHO’S INVITED: Highly Sensitive People (HSP) and their loved ones who want to understand them better.
