A well-balanced mixture of what an HSP should know, and what to do with it. This is a must-read, men and women alike.

Great book

Great book, I highly recommend it. It handles the topic from a different perspective. The author is a highly sensitive person as well. No negative comments about it.

Even though I'm not a highly sensitive man according to their scale, (I only scored high on 3 of the 4 areas) it gives you ways to use your sensitivity for good. It also helps us understand that we are not alone. It's ok to be sensitive. Just because society tells us to be one way, we have to be ourselves to be genuine and happy. The more that we can be ourselves, the more we can help others be themselves. This is the book leads us too.

“The German psychoanalyst and author Luise Reddemann describes the power of imagination as follows: “All of us have a magic ingredient available to us anywhere and at any time: Our imagination. With the help of our imagination, it is possible to create an inner world of solace, support, and strength, independent from how pleasant or benevolent the world around us actually is.” 0 likes
