Day 3 of the 2021 Empowerment Guide for HSPs. Today’s post provides us with another take on the need to serve that I mentioned yesterday but utilizing a writing practice as the outlet. Any form of creative expression can, of course, serve others but writing has a particular spot because it requires that people read the work, as opposed to viewing it as with an art object. Writing can also be seen as self-care when one is developing greater self-awareness and contextualizing one’s life, especially as an HSP.
Becoming a self-aware HSP takes time and effort. Mentoring also helps as we learn to navigate this world and reflect on how we choose to show up in it. A writing practice that endures can be a key aspect of an overall awakening to self.
