For so many years I would stuff it down, and try to conform to what everyone else was doing.
So is that the reason we should cook, garden, knit, or quilt?? No I think the reason is that we enjoy it. And in turn that becomes our "therapy".
Crafting makes us happy, and we can also make other people happy, by making gifts for our family, friends and charity.
So let's think of it this way. The quality may not be perfect, but in the end, you have gained a healthy attitude and you have not wasted your time :-)
To find out if you are a highly senstive person, you can do the self test at this website Highly Sensitive Person. I found this self test on Hooked on Houses blog.
