Wow Sam,

I just discovered this post and i am so glad you posted it. I can see that I am that sensitive person and not a freak.

I get so much here. Always learning and growing. This came at a good time. I needed to hear it.

take care

peace

paul

Hello Paul, I was just thinking about you, and now you posted here, that is a good feeling.

I am very glad you are continuing your recovery relief by constantly looking for new ways to reason and mature in healthy ways.

SPS or HSP, Highly Sensitive Person, is certainly an eye opener for me. Knowing that I have an emotional response that is triggered quickly and strongly helped me to create awareness for it, and calm myself. It has been a learning experience, and my wife noted that this period of recovery has been remarkable.

Let me know how this impacts your recovery, ok?

Sam

Cha Bra...I just discovered this as well. Why didn't you put it some place where I would have seen it, or maybe you could have posted it sooner...like back in November or something...cuz this is good stuff. I think we need to work on this!

Quick note here: I find that these types of posts, these little (or large) golden nuggets of wisdom are just amazingly powerful. They provide great leaps forward in my recovery. Everyone needs to keep them coming.

I tend to just bitch-n-moan here at MS. But the guys who relate true gold --- true substance back to The Brotherhood are truly contributing to healing.

"Sherman, set the WABAC machine for November, and bring along the SPS post".

PS. Rob, I have seen you running through MS with golden nuggets falling from your tipped bag as well. I am not too proud to say I have picked up a few.

Sam

Sam,

Your post gave me new perspective and outlook on why I do some of the things I do.

I thought my sensitivity was more proof that I am not a real man. I believed the societal stereotype that I had to be rough, tough, and insensitive to feelings in order to be a real man.

I stopped following that stereotype a long time ago, but your post helped me see that I am OK, and that i am also not alone. We are not alone here and I appreciate all of the great wisdom i get here from the site and from the great men who are helping me to survive and thrive.

If you ever get any new info on this subject, i would really like to hear about it, as I want to read more on it.

take care bro, and thanks for thinking of me, that made my week man.

peace

paul

I would like to share some wonderful poetry about SPS from Fiona Gyde in her book, Sensitive Walking;
Making Ends Meet
I have spent all my words
And in return--
Overstimulation
Overtiredness
And
The need to retreat
To save up again
While
Broken and penniless
Empty-pocketed
And
Overdrawn,
I'm in debt to myself
And
Seemingly,
To Those
Who would still
Like me
To spend.
~ ~ ~
Turning a Page
All my life
The odd one out
Never filling expectations,
The "ugly" one
Who thought and spoke and acted
Differently,
Whose entire outlook
Was somewhat foreign,
Rarely understood.
And looking down
I saw myself
A misfit, mismatch
Misunderstood and often
Miserable,
Until
A book of explanation
Fell into my lap,
A reflection of recognizable self-hood
Written by one
Like me
Like me
Like me,
There are others
Like me,
But they
With outspread wings
Soar together
High,
Purposefully
Majestically
Beckoning me
With awe and wonder
Just be being
Who they are,
To rise
And
Also fly.
