Why self-love is a priority, especially for highly sensitive people

In my 8 years of seeing clients, I haven't met one highly sensitive human who wasn't over-giving, that's a common trait (or one of the common traits) I have noticed and it was confirmed during the market research calls I have been doing lately.

Highly sensitive people, aka empaths, tend to prioritise others' wellbeing over their own, because that's how we are, we genuinely want others to feel good and we care deeply about others.

However, society tricks us into believing that self-love, taking time for self-care and spending time alone is selfish, or weird... and that is a lie!

Self-love and self-care needs to be a priority for everyone and it is even more so vital for highly sensitive people who also tend to be harder on themselves than necessary.

So if you're reading this, this is your reminder that it is ok to love yourself and take time for yourself. Take a break right now, close your eyes, take a deep breath and do something nice for yourself, say something nice to yourself.

If you're not sure how to practice self-love and are struggling with self-acceptance, my free ebook "How to go from negative self-talk to self-acceptance in 5 easy steps" can help getting you started.

I wish you all the best and feel free to connect if you'd like :)

Much love,
