“If I’m trying this hard,
why do I still feel so overwhelmed?”
You’ve tried everything.
You’ve read the self-help books. Set up new systems. Tracked your habits. Established daily routines.
Studied your Bible. Kept a prayer journal. Attended church.
Figured out your personality type (wow, that was fun!)
Dealt with your childhood baggage (ahem … not fun).
But life as a Highly Sensitive Person still feels overwhelming.
Especially when you pick up on sounds and smells and sights that nobody else seems to notice.
And wonder, “Are these my own emotions I’m feeling? Or have I absorbed someone else’s … yet again?”
Or when you’re repeatedly told that “sensitive” is synonymous with weak or defective or broken.
The key to feeling less overwhelmed
isn’t trying harder —
it’s becoming your true HSP self.
You can …
- shift away from thinking “something must be wrong with me” and learn, instead, to embrace the HSP gift God’s given you
- recognize your real emotions without apprehension and still “take every thought captive”
- gain confidence in trusting your HSP wiring, allowing your sensitivity to shine through to a world that desperately needs your tender heart
- discover the ability to experience abundant joy and appreciate deep beauty that comes with high sensitivity
The Sensitive & Strong
Think of it as the “wellness center” for your HSP heart.
Just knowing there are others who understand helps you feel less alone in your normal HSP struggles.
As you connect with other HSPs who have similar experiences, you gain validation about why you respond the way you do in certain situations.
Together you discover strategies for managing the daily challenges that come with the gift of being highly sensitive.
You can be fully who God created you to be as an HSP — without the constant overwhelm.
“I consider this a safe community for me. The women in this group understand how I feel because they live it themselves. I feel understood and supported.” ~ Cafe Member
Meet Your Host: Cheri Gregory
Growing up, I was an easily-overwhelmed, highly-reactive child. I heard the same words, over and over again:
“You are such a crybaby / attention-seeker / drama queen!”
“Why do you take everything so personally?”
“You are just too sensitive.”
I took these messages to heart, believing that something was very wrong with me.
As an adult, determined to find and fix my defects, I bought and devoured the self-help shelves of Barnes & Noble. Attended church and Bible study religiously. Sat in the front row taking copious notes at workshops, seminars, and retreats.
But no matter how hard I tried, I remained as easily-overwhelmed and highly-reactive as ever.
The first time I read about what it meant to be a Highly Sensitive Person, I felt a relief wash over me. There was nothing wrong with me. My experience was well within the bounds of “normal” for the highly sensitivity trait that 20% of the population shares.
As I’ve come to embrace and celebrate my God-given wiring and to learn tools to work with how He created me, my level of overwhelm has diminished greatly.
I’ve gone on to reach thousands of HSP Christian women as an author, speaker, and coach. In fact, two of my books are titled Overwhelmed and Sensitive & Strong. And in 2019, I founded The Sensitive & Strong Community Cafe.
Now that I’ve quit trying to be like everyone else, I’m enjoying new-found freedoms that have brought me contentment, peace, and unexpected joy.
These same freedoms are waiting for you!
“What I love is the assurance that I’m not alone! Getting to know all of the other wonderful cafe members. And learning that being an HSP can be a blessing … after feeling for so long as if it’s a disease. I check in as much as possible to remind myself I’m not crazy!” ~ Cafe Member

“The workshops are a great tool to help me understand relational and emotional dynamics among family and friends. It helps me to accept myself and keep growing. Which, in turn, helps me to accept them better. It’s a chain reaction — the more I learn, the more I can cope in a healthy manner through Christ who gives me strength.” ~ Cafe Member
