As odd as this may sound to the average person, many highly sensitive people (HSPs) pick up on and feel the emotions of others. Literal empathy is no picnic on its own, but what makes it traumatizing is that it's often impossible to tell that the emotions one is feeling are not one's own! Imagine, suddenly being sad or frightened with no clear evidence! The Sensitive Person's Survival Guide by Kyra Mesich, Psy.D. contains useful insights that can help tame the overwhelm from other people's emotions. Kyra offers concrete steps you can take for immediate relief and improvement.
Highly sensitive and empathic people are natural targets of bullies and manipulators, some of whom cloak themselves so well as to be true incarnations of wolves in sheep's clothing. Dr. George Simon saw the sociologically damaging pattern coming long before most of us, and his insights help us to see the pattern so that it may be broken. If there are no available prey, the predators move on. Learn how not to be seen as prey. Learn what it takes to return our society to a more civilized one, where predators return to the wild, where they belong.
I can almost always tell who the HSPs are who come to me as clients - they are palpably different from neurotypical people - and they are often remarkably strong, because they have to be. Highly sensitive people are built differently and benefit from understanding why they are different and what to do about it in order to feel more confident, less-stressed, and better able to navigate what too often feels like a heartless world.
Elaine Aron's body of work and research is probably the best introduction for those either unaware they are sensitive or who see it as a burden. My life changed for the better when I embraced my sensitivity, which resulted in the discovery of gifts I never knew I had. Discover your hidden gifts by discovering the beauty of being highly sensitive in a world that embraces the abrasive.
A neurologically sensitive system is more likely to suffer from chronic illness and no one explains it better than this doctor living with chronic illness. It's a great read worth sharing to improve understanding and support:

Solutions to everyday stress involve identifying where we are emotionally unhappy and then taking action to correct or curb the circumstances involved, and that means finding out what’s at the root of a given problem, before seeking solutions. I love this kind of problem-solving and happily share for those seeking similar unique yet ubiquitous solutions. Consequently, the topics here may vary within health, lifestyle, and work/business.
