it was amazing

I honestly thought there was something wrong with me until I read this book (okay, so there's a lot wrong with me, but that would fill a separate book ;-) Then, on every page, I was going ���YES!��� And ���OMG, that���s me!��� It finally lent validity to the things I���d been thinking and feeling for over thirty years.

As the author explains, HSP-ness is often confused with shyness and introversion. Definitely pick this one up if people are constantly telling you "You're too sensitive," "Grow a thicker skin," or "Just deal with it!". The book is also likely to give you a better understanding of different people in your life���-who may actually be HSP's in disguise! I know I am ;-)
