Maybe good for specific problems
on 16 June 2004
I think this book may be good for specific problems - eg if you've suffered abuse or been the abuser yourself even.
I didn't find it enlightening personally.
If you feel this way - that you feel a general pall over your life - a sense of low self-esteem and you can't put your finger on why specifically - then you may be an HSP like me. I highly recommend 'The Highly Sensitive Person' by Elaine N. Aron - it answered so many questions for me of why I think like I do, living in a non-HSP oriented world, and now I know what I am. It justified so many things in my life like my creativity and strong imagination. It boosted my self-esteem hugely because we all like to have definitions of ourselves - and now I know so much more about me! You may be a HSP if you feel a bit like life's a struggle.
