How Compassionate Are You?
While highly sensitive people tend to be the most compassionate people toward others, we often struggle with feeling compassion toward ourselves.
Here's an interesting self-compassion test by Kristin Neff: http://self-compassion.org/test-how-self-compassionate-you-are/
If you want to increase your ability to feel self-compassion there are specific methods I teach in my online global HSP course. Students that completed the course score higher after learning tools directly created for HSPs.

Living life with more self-compassion is incredibly transformational and supports us through just about everything.
