Reveal the untapped potential of sensitive people
'Written with such understanding and power it takes your breath away' - JEREMY VINE DISCOVER THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF SENSITIVITY
Have you even been told you are being 'too sensitive'? That you should develop a thicker skin? Society tells us that it's bad to be too soft, or feel too much. But is it?
Hannah Jane Walker, a highly sensitive person, has spent years researching sensitivity. Drawing on a wide range of experts, ideas and experiences, Hannah challenges the myth that sensitivity is something negative, and seeks an answer to the question: how useful is sensitivity to the world, and what is it for?
Hannah discovers that high sensitivity is sometimes connected to higher levels of empathy, emotional intelligence and creativity, and that whatever our level of sensitivity, it can be beneficial for us all. Society has undervalued sensitivity, teaching us that only the tough succeed, but this book seeks to change that story. Sensitivity is not a weakness or something to be ashamed of, but an invaluable form of strength, offering so many new ways of looking at the world.
