High sensitivity

… from “Les Miserables”: “Those who do not weep, do not see.”

This trait of high sensitivity nurtures our creativity and social activism, but also brings challenges.

Psychologist Elaine Aron and others describe it as a more finely tuned nervous system.

She explains,

“It means you are aware of subtleties in your surroundings, a great advantage in many situations. It also means you are more easily overwhelmed…”

How does being a highly sensitive person impact our feelings and our lives?
