The Highly Sensitive Person: How To Thrive When the World Overwhelms You By Author Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
We highly recommend this gem! If you’re empathic, feel overwhelmed in crowds or have been told “you’re too sensitive,” this book may help make sense of feeling like such an ‘odd duck’ in an eagle-like world. Aron beautifully illustrates the inner and outer workings of an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person). A wonderful way to understand and accept one’s self for being different (and feel o.k. with it).
Dr. Aron’s site has a self-test to determine your level of sensitivity.
