LEARN WHY YOU SOMETIMES FEEL OVER STIMULATED AND HIGHLY SENSITIVE AND DEVELOP STRATEGIES FOR THRIVING IN AN INTENSE WORLD.

This book is for you. Learn how to cope with having intense feelings, and discover how to use your sensitivity, empathy and intelligence to live a happier, more rewarding life.

NAVIGATE THE EXPERIENCE OF LIVING INTENSELY.

Do people sometimes describe you as emotionally intense or oversensitive? Do you often feel overwhelmed or anxious in the fact of a world which is loud, fast-moving and sometimes uncaring?

Understand Emotional Sensitivity will give you in-depth information about emotional intensity and its overlapping traits, as well as practical advice to help with daily struggles. Written in a friendly and compassionate tone, it has much to reveal about who you are, why you feel the way you do, and how you can be more resilient and reach your full potential. Easy to read, accessible and jargon-free, it will answer questions raised by many emotionally intense individuals:

Is there something wrong with me?
How does this trait explain my life experiences so far?
What can I do right now to better my life and to fulfil my potential?
Where can I find others like me?

You will:
- Understand what it means to live with emotional intensity
- Debunk the myths and stereotypes about this trait
- Reframe the way you see yourself and to let go of self- limiting beliefs
- Identify and liberate your unique potential
