Do anyof these statements apply to you:? "Other peoples moods affect me",   "I startle easily"  "When I was a child, my family labeled me as being too sensitive."  If so you maybe a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), as described by Elaine N. Aron, Phd, in her helpful book   The Highly Sensitive Person .  This book describes the characteristics of the HSP, and offers practical advise about thriving will this condition.  I really appreciated how Dr. Aron does not make being a HSP a problem or defect, but rather a human trait that has its gifts as well as its challenges.  After all, where would the world be without its artists, musicians, and activists, who are often HSPs?  Highly Sensitive Persons unite!
