Welcome to my website!

Hey you,

My name is Marloes van Meel and on this website I share my stories, my life, my insights. I am a HSP, a Highly Sensitive Person, and I will share a lot about this trait, because I think it is important that there is more knowledge and understanding of high sensitivity. I want to inspire, inform and guide fellow HSPs (and myself ;)) on their journey towards self-acceptance, self-love and self-expression. No more hiding or letting rejection get us down.
And ultimately, I hope this world will be a more sensitive place, a place where we can all fully embrace and express our sensitive souls without having to ‘harden up’ in order to survive.
