As a highly sensitive person do you ever feel invisible? Or maybe you feel only seen and appreciated for what you can do for others and how you make them feel about themselves, instead of for who you truly are.
When we feel overlooked or dismissed on a regular basis it can increase our emotional distress and manifest in unhealthy ways through feelings of sadness, anger, envy and shame, it can affect our sleep, eating habits, and energy levels.
Feeling rejected and ignored can lead us down a lonely path as HSPs, leaving us more isolated and disconnected and this is something we must be mindful of when it comes to our mental health.
