The (w)orld (w)ide (w)eb and HSP (Highly Sensitive People)

13 Jun

So we all know how “public” the internet is… and that there is kind of this freedom of publishing, when it comes to people’s personal profiles/websites.

I had an interesting experience at my workplace this week, where, in the spirit of the World Cup, I posted a video on my YouTube channel ( which proved to be rather “contraversial” or in other word, blown completely out of proportion by certain HSP’s.

The video consisted of some of my colleagues doing a dance for the World cup, which I and several other people thought was great.

Others, however, had ideas of reporting it as offensive to FB, in order to get the link removed from my profile…. pretty pathetic right??

Granted… I should have asked first…

But why the HPYER sensitivity and over reaction…??

I was then instructed to apologize to all in the video and remove it from the web… most just laughed at me, and were bumbed that I was told to remove it… (except for the HSP)

So now, the awesome vid is down… and I’m left wondering if the world is full of idiots who instigate and make out as though things are done maliciously causing others to be upset…. Or if it’s just in my neck of the woods….?

I’m not sure if these people are just self-important or what??

Any attention is better than none right??

I mean, what if they had just left it? Would it have got as much attention???????

I’d love to know…

SO if you have had an experience like this, or if you yourself are an HSP, I would love to hear from you!!
