    Thank you for this. I’m new here and just started learning about myself as an HSP. I’m about to spend Thanksgiving with three energy vampires. My “safe” people will not be with me. Going to be pray-cessing a lot. It’s difficult when you discover that your “un-safe” people include your children. But I’m excited about setting boundaries and having my inner world be safe and peaceful. If all I have is Jesus, that’s enough. Thankfully He has blessed me with two people I can identify as “safe”.
    So thankful this Thanksgiving I found you all.
    Blessings to all

    Loved reading this. I am definitely learning who- and who not – to share certain parts of my life with. I have been surprised, and upset, at the ppl in my life that I need to be careful with( my words). I have started praying before I see them- for discernment with what to share. And to make sure I am being attentive. Thank you for taking time out of your life, Cheri, to share your journey!!!

  3. Your Safety Sorter is such a good idea! What really hit me as I read is that I often am the Unsafe Person and even the Bully- to myself. Ouch.
    You sharing your journey has been very helpful to me. I don’t comment near as often as I would like. The things you are learning and sharing are helping me grow. Thank you!

  4. Do you think it’s possible that a person could be safe for sharing at a particular time or circumstance but not another? It would seem that with differing personalities and life experiences sometimes one could empathize with another but not always.

    Excellent article! Thank you so much!

  6. LOVE The Safety Sorter–especially how the 3 interactions disintegrated as relationships grew more toxic. “I wouldn’t change a thing,” says the girl you always manage to “get.”

    “Trying to get others to behave the way I want so I can feel the way I want” – testify!

    Well done!

    1. Finding your site has been the “air” I’ve needed to breathe, because I felt like I was drowning in despair. What a relief to learn that an HSP can also be strong…and that I’m not the only one of my kind. I knew that, but now I have a place of acceptance, belonging, comfort, encouragement, and understanding.
      THANKS for the Safety Sorter…and a safe place to Pray-cess. What a wonderful word!
