What’s so good about being highly sensitive? I pose this question because, based on the correspondence that I receive and what I see on online forums, I find that too many people focus on the negative side of this inherited character trait.

I try to accentuate the positive aspects of life, although it’s difficult sometimes. I’d like to shed some positive light on being a highly sensitive person. Being highly sensitive isn’t a choice but a natural way of being. Why not make the best of what you’ve got? (more…)
