Written for highly sensitive people, the book explains the characteristics of high sensitivity and how to overcome associated difficulties, such as low self-esteem and the exhausting effects of socializing. In today's fast-paced society, we are expected to be resilient, to have the energy to manage a packed work schedule, social calendar, and a large network of friends. If you find yourself struggling to live up to these non-stop social expectations, then this book is for you. It also encourages you to appreciate the advantages of high sensitivity, including your aptitude for depth and intensity, and suggests activities to calm and inspire.
