How many times in your life have you heard someone say, “Don't be so over-sensitive”?
Maybe they said it another way — like, “Get a thicker skin,” or “Don't be such a cry baby.”
You feel things deeply, and you also feel deeply misunderstood. Most people around you don't seem to share your sensitive nature, and they let you know your sensitivities are not desirable.
You easily sense the mood in a room and seem to know how someone is feeling without being told. You're bothered by loud noises, bright light, and too much stimulation in general. You need time alone to settle out and feel calm again.
Your friends can drink cup after cup of coffee, but one cup makes you jittery and anxious. Medications can cause weird side effects for you, and you have a low threshold for tolerating pain. You can't stand being around negative, draining people, but you find yourself drawn to helping others because you feel their pain, often before they do. You are empathetic and caring, but sometimes people take advantage of your helping nature, and you have a hard time creating boundaries to protect yourself.
You are easily moved by art, music, and anything that stirs your soul or touches your heart. Sometimes you cry because you're so moved. In fact, you have a very rich and vibrant inner life, whether you're more introverted or extraverted. In the right environments, with the right people, your world is exquisitely tuned and meaningful.
Strategies for Thriving as a Highly Sensitive Person
If you are a highly sensitive person or an empath, you've experienced many or all of these situations and feelings. Hypersensitivity can cause deep pain and confusion, but also it is the source of profound pleasure. Unfortunately, too many sensitive people are unaware that their traits are perfectly normal. Nor do they understand how to manage their lives in order to maximize their unique gifts and minimize discomfort and suffering.
For these reasons, I've written my latest book, Finely Tuned: How to Thrive As a Highly Sensitive Person or Empath. As a highly sensitive person (HSP) myself, I know firsthand how important it is to have strategies in place to help you live happily and comfortably in a world that often feels overwhelming and insensitive.
For the next few day, I'm offering the Kindle version of my book for just $.99 through Amazon’s KDP Select program. This special pricing helps the book rank well on Amazon, so if you purchase at this great price, it’s a win/win for both of us!
In the book, I share some of the background research about sensitive people and why it's a normal (and highly valuable) trait. And I discuss strategies in various areas of your life for managing the discomforts of being an HSP or empath (these two are different) and for designing your life in a way that plays to your unique gifts.
- Specific traits and needs of HSPs and empaths;
- Understanding and accepting yourself;
- How childhood experiences impact sensitives;
- Parenting a sensitive child;
- Depression and anxiety as a sensitive;
- How HSPs and empaths are similar and different;
- Enhancing friendships and love relationships;
- Managing work environments and the best work for sensitives;
- An extensive list of tips for savoring daily life as a sensitive.
For those of you who are highly sensitive, or if you have a sensitive person in your life, I hope this book will serve both to enlighten you on tremendous value of your amazing traits, but also provide you with really solid, proven actions to help you manage the more difficult parts of being so finely tuned.
