Is it Harder to be in a Relationship with a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)?
We look at Orchid Theory and Differential Susceptibility and we talk about attachment. Can an HSP be in a healthy relationship with a non HSP? Some HSPs choose not to be in relationships. We talk about attunement, self-compassion, wounding, perfectionism, as well as misperception, misunderstanding, and the lack of ability to see more than one perspective. We also talk about existential loneliness, feeling othered and different, and how this can impact a relationship.
