I am SO HAPPY to see 'HSP - Highly Sensitive Person' is becoming more understood and researched into! Its about time this was taken seriously in society as awareness really is essential.. this is a very real thing that effects around 20% of the population and I expect many people like myself, who are HSP's have only just found out about this trait recently! I feel so grateful I did as the research and advice around it can really help you learn how to protect yourself and ways in which you can deal with certain situations if you are, and also just to know that you are not alone or going crazy too.
I would strongly suggest anyone who thinks they may be HSP to firstly look into 'Eliane Aron' who wrote a book on being a HSP which saved me in really dark time a few years ago when thinking no one else understood the intense emotions and hyper sensitivity I was experiencing in day to day life, but now I can turn it into a positive thing thanks to the work of Elaine Aron and other HSP support groups online which gave me deeper understanding and advice! Its great for your partner or friends/family to read too if they want to try and gain insight into the world of a HSP! Her website is http://hsperson.com/ which also has details of the book!
Look out for a documentary 'Sensitive' which will be available in September 2015 too! Really cant wait for it!!! http://sensitivethemovie.com/sensitive-film-premiere
Absolutely buzzing from my heart that this awareness is spreading!!! <3
