What's it like for you living as a highly sensitive person in a world that can sometimes feel insensitive?

If you're struggling to get through the day because your sensitivities seem to get in the way, you're in the right place. I know exactly how you feel! Before I learned how to master my strengths and embrace who I am as a HSP, I struggled just to get out of bed. 

When I discovered that I'm a highly sensitive person, I was barely surviving the stress and anxiety of every day life! It was like a weight I carried around with me all the time. And it was so exhausting! I couldn't share with anyone how hard it really is to be a deep feeler. 

Most people don't understand what that means so I struggled in silence. I felt alone and different from everyone around me. I was stuck and couldn't get myself out of the downward spiral I was in.

Does this sound familiar? Can you relate in any way? 

When I stumbled on The Highly Sensitive Person website, my whole life changed. I finally felt a sense of power I never knew I had. And I began a journey of discovering who I am from the inside out. That journey has led me here! Why? Because I know I'm not alone. There are a lot of other people who also suffer in silence. And I believe it's time to change that! 

Mastering your strengths as a highly sensitive person gives you the skills, tools, and confidence to overcome whatever challenge comes your way. 

Are you ready to master your strengths?

Diana Himes - Founder, Embracing Life Academy

In 2019, my life changed forever when I discovered I'm a highly sensitive person. After that happened, I made the decision to learn more about who I am from the inside out. On this journey of self-discovery, I found what I'd been looking for almost all of my life...love, support, and guidance. 

Before then, I tried to find these things outside of myself and it wasn't until I started looking inside that I really found them. Now I'm sharing what I've learned with you so you too can discover who you are from the inside out!

Not only am I a highly sensitive person, I've been teaching people new things for over 15 years. I know how to empower others to take charge of their lives.

As a life-long learner, I'm passionate about teaching others what I know. Why? Because that's my purpose in life! I'm committed to helping HSPs embrace who they are so you can live the life of your dreams.
