Being highly sensitive can be awesome. We’ve listed some of the great things that “normal” people miss out on. Check them out.
And no, that does not mean that being highly sensitive is not ‘normal’. In fact, around ten percent of the population is estimated to be a Highly Sensitive Person. Don’t know if you’re one?
