Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Would You Like Some Advice From Dr. Bernie Siegel?

Below are some quotes I jotted down when I attended a lecture by Dr. Bernie Siegel, an American writer and retired pediatric surgeon who writes on the relationship between the patient and the healing process. He’s well-known for his bestselling book Love, Medicine and Miracles.
