Interview / Article: Therese Borchard: 5 Gifts of Being Highly Sensitive

Short and sweet because, well, I think in reading down to the "curses" of being highly sensitive, I've found something that has described me over a lifetime. Although I have heard of Highly Sensitive People, I think I didn't realize that I fit some of the characteristics, especially the sensitivity to others emotions and the need for periods of solitude. Um... yeah I have been on the planet almost 37 years. ha.

((ARTICLE EXCERPT))

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Douglas Eby, M.A./Psychology, who is a writer and researcher on the psychology of creative expression, high ability and personal growth. He is creator of the Talent Development Resources series of sites, includingHighlySensitive.org at TalentDevelop.com. I know many of you are "highly sensitive" and enjoy articles on that topic, so I am excited to pique his highly sensitive brain today!

After a Q and A, down at the bottom I read this...

Question: And, if you had to name five curses, what would they be? And how best do we overcome them or co-exist with them?

Douglas:

1. Easily overwhelmed, overstimulated

2. Affected by emotions of others

3. Need lots of space and time to ourselves

4. Unhealthy perfectionism

5. Living out of sync with our culture
