RE: How do you explain the trait of being an HSP to others?
Somehow it seems, some will never understand it, some can have a glimpse, and others seem to understand it – mostly connected to their level of empathy.
How do you explain, if you explain at all?
I usually say: “you know the feeling of focussing on one thing? now imagine focussing on 5000 things at the same time, and yes, your system wasn’t built for this.” and similar.
