What is an HSP? by AMX-269 What is an HSP? by AMX-269
Highly Sensitive Person: a person having the innate trait of high sensitivity (or innate sensitiveness as Carl Gustav Jung originally coined it) [Definition from: [link] ]

"The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him... a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create--so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating." -Pearl S. Buck

Pearl Buck, ya nailed it. ^^ If I am not creating, I feel like I'm choking to death!! And I reckon I'm pretty sensitive too. "A misfortune is a tragedy." Yup. We see everything, everyone, every possibility. But even though it sometimes is overwhelming, it is a blessing for me and I would not give it up, for any price. ^^ Here's to the strange artists!!

Very nice. I like the posing and the expression and the text just adds so much to it. Sounds like my b/f.

Yeah, that's just how AMX feels sometimes. Being an HSP is a really good thing...but it can be hard when your self-esteem isn't the best in the world. :(

Pearl S. Buck is a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author (and most likely an HSP) who said the quote about HSPs. If you ask me, the quote hits the nail right on the head.

Glad you like the picture. :D
