Discover how your sensitivities are strengths and gifts
Learn how to set boundaries and practice self-care… without guilt.
Do these traits describe you?:
- You’re compassionate and empathetic to others… but might struggle with self-love
- You prefer deep conversations instead of small talk
- For much of your life, saying no or creating boundaries with family or loved ones has been a challenge
- You have high expectations for yourself
- You crave meaning and fulfillment
- You have strong insight and are deeply in tune with others
- You love being in nature and find it restores you
- You feel drained and need extra downtime after crowds, socializing, or traveling
- You want to get things right and try hard to avoid mistakes
- You are very perceptive, noticing small changes in a room others might not see, or picking up scents
- You need time and space to absorb new information — and if you don’t get it, you can become overwhelmed
If you relate to even just a few of these traits, you’re likely empathic and a highly sensitive person…
Being highly sensitive means you have gifts the world needs. — Julie Bjelland

“It’s a type of survival strategy…”
Julie Bjelland, LMFT, is a psychotherapist, author and consultant on Highly Sensitive People.
She explains in a post on her site: “It’s an innate trait that makes up to 15-20% of the population and is also found in several species of animals.
“It’s a type of survival strategy that involves a special way of processing extra, subtle details. We have the ability to read micro-expressions, for example, that up to 85% of the population cannot. We process the five senses in a much deeper way.”
This video includes an excerpt from her audio presentation for The Evolutionary Empath Summit in May, 2019.
DOES – an acronym describing the trait
D is for Depth of Processing
O is for Overstimulation
E is for Emotional Reactivity and Empathy
